ORIGIN NYE First line up announce

Australia’s largest New Year’s Eve event, Origin NYE, has released its first set of acts. The festival takes place on Sunday, December 31 at Claremont Showgrounds.

Origin NYE 2017 will host a range of global superstars including Grammy nominated producer and artist DJ Snake, Mura Masa, Schoolboy Q, Stormzy, as well as the likes of DJ’s and producers Andy C, Baauer, Camo and Krooked, Gentlemens Club, REZZ, Sub Focus and many more – as well as more to be announced. This year will be the festival’s ten-year milestone.

Grammy-nominated William Grigahcine, better known by his stage name DJ Snake, is a French DJ and producer, perhaps best known for co producing Lil Jon’s smash hit Turn Down for What in 2013 and collaborating with Major Lazer and MØ on their latest chart-topping club hit Lean On.

At just 20 years old, UK producer Mura Masa, has seen his stock rise on the back of collaborations with high profile recording artists such as chart toppers Charli XCX (1 Night), A$AP Rocky (Love$ick), and NAO (Firefly). Last week he released his much anticipated self-titled debut album.

ScHoolboy Q is Man of the Year. Topping the Billboard chart at #1 with his debut album Oxymoron, the acclaimed Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) artist joins the Origin NYE 2017 line-up following his worldwide tour of the album Blank Face that earned him two Grammy nominations. ScHoolboy Q has been teasing a new album in 2017.

Following the success of his UK album Gang Signs & Prayer featuring hits Big For Your Boots and Shut Up, and in town tonight, South London MC Stormzy will return to Perth in December for a performance at Origin NYE. His debut album entered the UK charts at #1.

Also worthy of a mention is REZZ. The Niagra Falls native has added Origin NYE to her impressive international run of festival shows and her Mass Manipulation world tour. Since her debut, REZZ has continued to build a solid fan base and industry support from the likes of Deadmau5.

This is only the first round lineup announcement from Origin NYE, with the promise of more talent to be added to the bill before December.

Origin NYE takes place Sunday, December 31 at Claremont Showgrounds. Presale Tickets for Origin NYE 2017 go on sale on JULY 20th. General sale begins on JULY 25th.
