Pitch Music & Arts 2020 Is A Knockout

The Victorian event’s four-day lineup is just URGGGHHH….

We don’t know how they do it, but every year Pitch manages to announce a lineup bigger than their previous editions. Dixon, Charlotte De Witte, Four Tet, Sven Vath, MCDE, Denis Sulta are just some of the past names to grace the Pitch stage. Stand back and take a deep breath, they might have trumped all those previous years with a list of names that might go down as the most credible electronic music lineup this Southern Land has witnessed. We’re talking Richie Hawtin, The Black Madonna, Ben UFO; the debut tours of Kobosil, FJAAK, TERR… the lineup is DEEP. Check all the names below, but here are three acts we are most excited about:

Maceo Plex

Fingers crossed…

In 2018 he broke our collective Pitch hearts when, like a bad Tinder date, he stood us all up by cancelling his long-awaited Australian return. The excuse was a ruptured hernia, but we selfishly didn’t care. So it is with cautious optimism that we celebrate his Australian return in over seven years. The man responsible for one of the most-watched Boiler Rooms ever, and this Revolver anthem, just happens to be one of the biggest names in all of dance music. Now for the love of God get on that plane. PLEASE…

Cosmic vibes…

We have been singing Shubostar’s praises for a while now, and we don’t seem to be the only ones. A mixture of nu-disco, slo-mo house and serotonin rushes, the cosmic sounds of Shubostar is destined to become a dance floor regular very soon. Her uju record label might only be a couple of releases deep, but it is filled with quality that demand repeated listens. Too good.

Curses

Will make his Australian debut…

Our love for the Gospel of Curses is well documented. He makes cool-as-fuck music, with a fashion sense to match. His debut album ‘Romantic Fiction’, released on Jennifer Cardini’s Dischi Autunno imprint, was a delicious ride through post-punk and dank disco and announced a highly singular artist. The Curses sound is, at the same time, polished and rough around the edges. It is music to bring people together - and piss off your parents (lol). This will be the debut Australian tour for the King of dark disco sounds.
