Following on from the success of last year’s Indent Tour starring Tonight Alive, Indent is thrilled to announce Sydney’s unique jungle-pop quintet Jinja Safari as this year’s headliner!
With tribal “African beats straight out of the jungle” (SMH) taking their listener on a “cosmic pop safari”(BBC), Jinja Safari are renowned for their energetic live shows and animated onstage antics.
After winning Triple J’s Unearthed competition in 2010, Jinja Safari spent the majority of 2011 playing a heap of sold out shows across Australia. In that time, the band played with the likes of Miami Horror, Boy And Bear and Art Vs. Science. Currently on a whirlwind tour of Europe and the UK, Jinja Safari have conquered all corners of the globe, having previously played shows in both the USA and Canada.
Off the back of a string of international festival dates, the band will be bringing their famous live show to this year’s all-ages drug and alcohol free tour that spans New England, Central Coast, Mid-North Coast and Northern Rivers regions of NSW.
“Al and I grew up in a regional area in southern Tasmania, so we rarely had mainland bands coming through our hood. One of my earliest gig memories is seeing one my favorite bands at the time, Frenzal Rhomb, play at a show ground/cattle auction yard, in the middle of nowhere near where we lived…” said Jinja Safari front man Marcus Azon. “The area was like cow and apple country, so it was pretty dorky for them to play there – But it was such a great, wild gig and one that I’ll never forget. The Indent Tour is a great chance to do the same thing.”
The Indent Tour is now in it’s third year. Teams of young people, who will gain practical skills in event management and music business from leading industry professionals, will stage each show on the Indent tour.
All shows are all-ages and drug & alcohol free.
Tickets $10 + BF available 9am Tuesday September 25 through Oztix.
