GIZZFEST Newcastle

GIZZFEST Newcastle

Bar On The Hill

Doors 6pm | 18+ licensed event | $55+bf

It has been a massive year internationally for KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD as they carved up and/or sold out almost every date on their global tour in the biggest venues and best festival spots they’ve played to date. They’ve been absent from the Australian live circuit for much of the year other than the now legendary eight night run “ïn-the-round” at the Nightcat and a wild show at Splendour in the Grass in July so they couldn’t be more pleased to get out on the road with a travelling show of their very own making featuring some of their favourite local, national and international artists/friends.

King Gizzard never break a promise and are on schedule to release the 5 albums they promised this year. So far we’ve seen the microtonal freakout that was “Flying Microtonal Banana”, the dystopian end of times concept album “Murder of the Universe” and the trippy collaboration with their US mates Mild High Club “Sketches of Brunswick East” with two more crazy wax slabs still to come around this GIZZFEST mayhem.

Mounting their own national happening in the form of Gizzfest is the way the band can make sure people are treated right and lose all the corporate bits of shows.

Most importantly it is a chance to respect the bands and fans who make the grass roots music community where all the coolest shit resides what it is. Cannot wait!
