Friday 22 January 2016

This summer electronic music lovers of Perth are going to experience something very special.

Electric Gardens Festival presents a monster sideshow to kick-start the Australia Day Weekend celebrations.

JAMES ZABIELA now confirmed to join UK electro superstar FATBOY SLIM for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

JAMES ZABIELA is a rare breed of artist! With over two decades of experience and his unrivalled technical abilities during his live shows have cemented him into the hearts of electronic music lovers the world over! Having held down the coveted and hugely prestigious Ibizan residency at ‘We Love…Space’ for 12 years there is no denying JAMES ZABIELA has earnt his reputation as “Jedi hero” to electronic music.

Norman Cook AKA FATBOY SLIM is one of the biggest musical influences in the electronic music scene over the last 20 years. He has defined a generation of music lovers. He has headlined festivals globally, and produced numerous iconic dance music albums of the last two decades. He has played a legendary set to 250,000 people at the Big Beach Boutique event in the UK, and created a 2,000 person human smiley at Creamfields 2015. Fans will be reaching for the lasers at Red Hill Auditorium January 22nd 2016.

These days, Cook’s show involves not just playing his own patented brand of ‘party acid house’, but a complex audio-visual production. “I’m technically a video jockey now. We write scripts for all the tunes, make films. In the past, I used to have to literally hold up the next record I was going to play to the guy who does my visuals, and he’d have to find the images to match it. And they were never synched. But now, because of the technology, no matter what speed I play at, even if I just chop quickly into it, the visuals are all synchronized. It’s a show.”

Electric Gardens has chosen the stunning Red Hill Auditorium for this landmark event.

Settled within the John Forrest National Park with sweeping views over the ocean and city, it’s the largest purpose built outdoor concert venue in Western Australia, with a capacity of 5000, this is an intimate mini-festival where everyone sees the show.

This Australia Day Weekend will be the pinnacle of the summer with the promise of more acts to be announced.
