ARCTIC MONKEYS

The indie-rock upstarts from Sheffield that became the biggest British band of this century – the incomparable Arctic Monkeys are headed down under for the new year. From mosh-stirrer ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ to the dogged bass strut of ‘Do I Wanna Know’, the foursome wear brash and boisterous like a second skin whilst always leaving room to evolve. It doesn’t get much bigger than this, lads – expect mayhem.

LIL NAS X

The rise of 23 year old Lil Nas X is already the stuff of legend. A queer black rapper purchases a $30 beat and makes a hip hop track that topped the country charts, the pop charts, the Billboard charts and every other chart for five record-breaking months. Backing up ‘Old Town Road’ with a critically acclaimed album featuring Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus and Elton-bloody-John, Lil Nas X is smashing barriers and subverting expectations as – we’re calling it – the hottest new name in hip hop in the world.

PEGGY GOU

There’s a reason Mixmag coined the term Gou-mania. The South Korean artist boasts a fanbase so wild and widespread it dominated the rave zeitgeist and needed a name. Responsible for some of the defining tracks in modern house music and dangerously adventurous in her eclectic, high-octane DJ sets, the last time she visited Aus she cooked us all alive. We’re ready again, Peggy.

JAMIE XX

Jamie xx, the forward-thinking beatmaker, producer and DJ, has shaped the sound of modern UK-electronica for more than a decade. First making a name for himself as one third of Mercury Music Prize-winning group The xx, then with his much sought-after remixes for the likes of Adele, Florence + The Machine and Gil Scott-Heron, Jamie has since gone on to achieve similar heights with his solo output. His 2015 debut album ‘In Colour’ topped the UK charts, while cult singles ‘Gosh’, ‘Idontknow’ and ‘All Under One Roof Raving’ have become instant club staples for discerning dancers and DJs alike. In 2022, Jamie has resurfaced with ‘Let’s Do It Again’ alongside a pair of life-affirming headline sets at Coachella. Next, he rings in the new year at Lost Paradise – in colour.
