Follow the fish to the largest ever beach party Australia has ever seen this May, with global superstar artist and Gold Coast icon FISHER announcing the OUT 2 LUNCH FESTIVAL, an epic one-of-a-kind festival set to descend on Queensland’s Coolangatta Beach on Saturday 4 May, bringing music fans together for a momentous celebration of sun, surf, music and good vibes.
In an Australian first, TEG Live is proud to present the inaugural OUT 2 LUNCH FESTIVAL, with the event boasting a two-hour set from FISHER himself, as well as a huge international and local line-up, including performances from Vintage Culture, Flight Facilities, Little Fritter and Shimmy, with plenty more surprises in store for this unforgettable event.
Artist pre-sales for the event will go live on Tuesday 6 February from 10am AEST (11am AEDT), before general public tickets go on sale on Friday 9 February from 10am AEST (11am AEDT). There’ll be a host of VIP packages available for those who jump in quick, with all ticket holders gaining access to a free event bus shuttle to and from the event, with access points at Broadbeach Light Rail Station, Varsity Lakes Railway Station, Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads. Park and Ride options will be available from Tugun and Tweed Heads. See the full transport details at teglive.com.au.
Elated to be hosting the biggest beach party in his hometown this May, FISHER shares, “Guys, i’m coming down under! Are you kidding? We’re on the beach, we’re going mad, get your tickets and get ready to rock & roll. See you on the dance floor!”
A Grammy and ARIA Award-nominated producer and former pro surfer, FISHER, aka Paul Fisher, is undeniably one of Australia’s most electrifying exports. Releasing his debut solo single Ya Kidding in 2017, FISHER swiftly turned heads in 2018 with the scorching single Crowd Control before hitting viral status via his monster breakout track Losing It, completely changing the game. Launched live in person for the first time at Coachella and now a bona fide festival banger with close to 500 million streams on Spotify alone, the tech-house hybrid track not only put FISHER on musical map, with a label bidding war, a Grammy nod, taking out the #2 spot on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2018 and international chart success; the single also influenced the future of dance music across the board, heralding a shift away from the EDM-centric styles of the time into more slick underground club and house realms.
In 2023, FISHER released multiple hit records including Yeah The Girls and Take It Off; the latter being the mega dance hit with AATIG which achieved placement on BBC Radio 1 ‘B List’ Playlist and over 50 million streams on Spotify. FISHER’s following single Atmosphere ft. Kita Alexander was one of the dance anthems of the summer after its explosion on TikTok – combining soaring synths and irresistibly catchy lead vocals over a pulsating uptempo groove, Atmosphere amassed 3 million Spotify streams in its first week alone. FISHER’s last visit to Australia saw him sell 73,000 tickets over 4 stops around the country, breaking the record for live attendance at the Domain in Sydney.
FISHER is diving into 2024 with gusto, lined up to headline at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee alongside Fred Again, Pretty Lights and a mountain of other acts, at Electric Love Festival in Austria along with The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Armin van Buuren and more, with countless headline sets worldwide also surrounding his hotly anticipated return to home soil this May for FO2L. A truly perfect amalgamation of all things OUT 2 LUNCH FESTIVAL is the hottest ticket in town this year; if you thought summer was winding down, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Also performing his first ever show in Australia at OUT 2 LUNCH FESTIVAL, Brazil-based DJ and producer Vintage Culture will be bringing the good vibes, with his charismatic creations set to wow the fans. An artist also perched incredibly high in the world of house and techno, Vintage Culture’s hybrid artistry and astounding sets at some of the hottest venues in the world make him an act simply not to be missed.
One of Australia’s most beloved groups, electronic duo Flight Facilities have been weaving musical magic for over a decade, from their insatiable 2010 single Crave You, through to their chart-smashing 2014 debut album Down to Earth. Over the years, the pair have performed at the likes of Coachella, SXSW and countless other shows, and closed out 2023 with some tantalising new tunes out in the world.
The Gold Coast’s Little Fritter is no stranger to bringing good times to the masses, with the talented DJ and producer showcasing his technicolour creations at some of Australia’s most iconic events, as well as international institutions over the years. Recently unveiling new material on some of the world’s biggest dance labels, Little Fritter also launched his own festival Need2Freak shaking up the Queensland scene.
A versatile and energetic Aussie DJ raised by the ocean, Shimmy, aka pro surfer Dimity Stoyle, is renowned for her heady mix of house, techno and exotic disco; a mesmerising sonic cocktail that will be getting the FO2L crowds in the party mood this May. When she’s not travelling the world on the surf circuit, Shimmy can be found wowing crowds from sunset to sunrise, including multiple sell out Need2Freak sets.
Transforming one of Australia’s most recognisable landmarks – Coolangatta Beach – into the biggest beach party Australia has ever seen this May, OUT 2 LUNCH FESTIVAL will act as the perfect bookend to the Gold Coast Pro alongside the World Surf League at Snapper Rocks, and the hype is definitely real.
General public tickets will go on sale on Friday 9 February at 10am AEST (11am AEDT) from https://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=FISHOUT24, with pre-sales beginning on Tuesday 6 February.
