Psychedelic seven-piece King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard (more affectionately known as King Gizz) are no strangers to the festival circuit. Coming off a nationwide tour of their very own mini-festival, Gizzfest, and performances at Meredith and Fairgrounds, the Melbourne-based band are an exciting addition to the already impressive line-up for Laneway Festival.
The King Gizz boys, who have released eight albums since forming in 2010, have just announced that they’ll be releasing five albums (yes, FIVE) in 2017. And with the first of five albums (Flying Microtonal Banana) to be released on February 24, you can bet their Laneway performance will include a tonne of new tracks – and of course, a bunch from their ARIA-award winning album Nonagon Infinity.
With so much new music to be released in 2017, it’s likely that King Gizz’s Laneway show will be the last in Sydney for some time. The boys have already locked in tours in Europe, Canada and North America, with their name recently announced on the bill for California’s famous desert festival Coachella.
St Jerome's Laneway Festival takes place in Sydney on Saturday February 4 at Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle. The line-up includes Tame Impala, Young Thug, Flight Facilities, DMA’s, Tycho, Nick Murphy (Chet Faker) and more.
