Having already announced a killer lineup for their hometown festival, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have just dropped the Gizzfest Sydney lineup and other details on us, and sure enough it’s another winner.
Along with stalwarts like ORB and The Murlocs, Sydney will cop Japanese guests Kikagaku Maru and U.S. visitors La Luz, plus our new faves Amyl & The Sniffers, Leah Senior, parsnip and The Dandelion – and of course King Gizzard themselves will be at the helm.
Gizzfest is all going down on Thursday November 23 at the Big Top at Luna Park Sydney, and the band are really leaning into the carnival theme, letting punters mess around in the carnival grounds when they’re not watching the bands across the festival’s three stages.
The lineup isn’t quite as huge as the Melbourne edition, but it’s a tightly-curated assortment of great acts, and you’ll also be able to ride a bunch of Luna Park’s favourite attractions to your heart’s content, from the ferris wheel and dodgem cars, to rides like the ‘Wild Mouse’ and the ‘Tumble Bug’ – just more opportunities to make yourself munt at a festival.
We’re still waiting on the Gizzfest lineups for Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Newcastle and Byron Bay legs as they’re announced in the coming weeks, all set to take place between November 18 and December 2.
Until then, we’ll have King Gizzard’s new jazz-influenced album Sketches of East Brunswick on rotation, and be hanging out for their fourth and final LP for 2017.
