Gang of Youths


Nothing prepared the mighty GANG OF YOUTHS for the huge success of their second album Go Farther in Lightness.  Sure, their debut impressed, their live shows were riveting and their fans spoke about them in breathless reverence but few bands have achieved so much in just 18 months: a #1 ARIA Chart debut, four ARIA Awards (Best Group, Best Rock Album, Producer Of The Year and the prestigious Apple Music Album Of The Year), three spots in the Top 10 of triple j’s Hottest 100, ticket sales records at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and Melbourne’s Forum Theatre. But is it any wonder: the Sydney five piece, led by Dave Le’aupepe, take cues from rock history’s most ambitious and theatrical preachers, and drag the beauty out of everything from hell to high heaven. We’re honoured to have the country’s best rock band close out the festival in what will be their last Australian shows for a very long time. Watch a live version of 'The Deepest Sighs, The Frankest Shadows'.

Look back at the incredible journey these guys have been on with here
