Dance music lovers and festival goers rejoice, as Listen Out announce that the festival will be going ahead in 2022 nationwide! As we all know, festivals have been hit hard the past couple years, making it all the more exciting to see the event back on their old stomping grounds in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and yes Perth, as well as the Listen In (a hand-picked selection of Hip Hop & Electronic artists from the Listen Out tour) taking over Adelaide and Auckland, all kicking off later this year. 

Back in 2019 we were lucky enough to soak in the sights, sounds, and atmosphere at the Perth leg of the festival, sharing that "Listen Out’s tried-and-tested festival model only sets to grow into this dominative, hip-hop festival space,". For those who are yet to witness Listen Out IRL, or simply wish to reminisce, be sure to take a look at the article here

Now for 2022’s installment, get those calendars out/ let Siri know to set a reminder to tune into triple j for 08:00am AEST on Tuesday 26th April where the full lineup will be dropping live on air!
