Origin Festival upgrades to 2 days and a new central location

Perth's biggest NYE soiree just got even bigger.

After 11 solid years that has seen it become Western Australia's largest music event in recent times, Origin NYE today announced some big changes for the New Year's Eve bash, namely:

- Expanded two day format

- A move to Langely Reserve in the city centre

- A shift in musical direction

The predominately trap, rap and bass music festival has played host to the likes of A$AP Rocky, DJ Snake, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T, Die Antwoord, Pendulum, Schoolboy Q, Stormzy and more in recent years, and the team behind it are excited to bring the newly re-branded Origin Fields to help ring in 2019:

“I started Origin when I was twenty with a team that has grown with me from the beginning, we are extremely proud of what we have created over the past 11-years. From booking “sub culture” acts and watching the music we love gradually become the mainstream. It’s been a crazy ride. Time changes things, in this case we have a new dream. To become an event that anyone in Perth can attend to celebrate the new year.

"We can’t thank Perth, our interstate and international travellers enough for their continual support. Without their passion, Origin wouldn’t be the monster it is today. In light of that, we are extremely excited to announce that Origin will be moving back to the city centre at Langley Reserve in 2018 over December 30 & 31 and will be rebranded as Origin Fields."

With lineup announcements to come thick and fast in the following weeks, you can keep abreast of what's going on by registering for pre-sale tickets at the Origin Fields WEBSITE.
