Alison Wonderland at Academy Club

  • Academy Club

Childish Gambino has cancelled his upcoming Canberra performance only 2 days out due to his busy touring schedule taking a toll. 

His management has sent the following correspondence “We hope to return to Australia next time and restore the faith and trust of our loyal fans in Canberra.”

Kicks and Academy Club will ensure that all tickets purchased through Moshtix will be refunded automatically today. 

Kicks Entertainment and Academy are extremely excited to announce that Warehouse party starter Alison Wonderland will be performing at Academy Club this Friday! 2015 has been a year to remember for Alison Wonderland with the release of her debut album ‘Run’ reaching #1 on the US Electronic Billboard charts, a nation-wide US tour which included Coachella, New York, Miami, EDC Las Vegas and Lollapalooza, and a sold-out Australian Warehouse tour. 

We are stoked to announce that this will be Alison Wonderland’s first time in Canberra since the release of ‘Run’ and her sold out tour, giving fans that missed out a chance to catch her in the ACT. 

Academy Club has no doubt that fans will be disappointed in Childish Gambino’s cancellation, however we hope you will join us to party our cares away with epic sounds of Alison Wonderland.

Disclosure (Live), Duke Dumont, Alunageorge & Safia at UC

  • University of Canberra

Kicks Entertainment, UC Live!, Party by Jake & Triple J present...

DISCLOSURE
London production duo Disclosure, have dropped arguably the most significant electronic album of the year. ‘Settle’ is the latest offering from brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence (aged just 21 and 18 respectively) who have already seen huge success with singles Latch, You and Me, White Noise & the underground floor filler Confess to me. With its addictive sunshine sound, their killer new album has cemented Disclosure’s reputation as the UK’s most exciting – and uplifting – new producers.

DUKE DUMONT
Before 2012 Duke Dumont was known as a ‘producer’s producer’. He was the name on a 12” record the DJ knew to reach for when he wanted to please the crowd, without them knowing who had constructed the mesmerising sonic confection they were dancing too. Turn forward to 2013. After dropping club hit The Giver and massive pop sensation Need U (100%) Duke has become the man of the moment who just happens to have a record bag filled with gold.

ALUNAGEORGE
Taking the boom of British bass culture and marrying it to the sweet slickness of classic American R&B, AlunaGeorge – aka Aluna Francis and producer George Reid – are fast becoming an unstoppable force in 2013. With their signature sound that has captured the attention of critics and fans alike, AlunaGeorge are turning British pop on its head. The summer of 2013 looks set to be theirs for the taking as the debut album Body Music drops alongside a new You Know You Like It.

SAFIA
After taking out this year’s Triple J Unearthed for Groovin’ The Moo Canberra, SAFIA’s track Stretched & Faded began hitting the airwaves and causing quite a stir across the country, attracting hundreds of savvy punters to rise and catch their morning festival slot. On June 1, SAFIA unveiled their single Listen to Soul, Listen to Blues setting a new benchmark for the band in songwriting and sound, with solid support from a range of Triple J programmers including Lewi McKirdy, Dave Ruby-Howe, and the Home & Hosed team. Throw in some international air-time in the UK on the prestigious XFM, as well as New Zealand’s GeorgeFM, SAFIA are clearly showing signs of an act possessing global potential, both in the studio and on the big stage.

Tickets go on sale Friday 28th June at 9am

Rudimental at UC

Canberra’s Hit Music Station 104.7, Kicks Entertainment & UC Live! are excited to announce chart topping stars Rudimental are heading to Canberra this September! Supported by Gorgon City & SAFIA.

Having made their way into the hearts of the nation with their huge hit Feel The Love, Rudimental’s highly charged live show is not to be missed! Their debut album ‘Home’ was released earlier this month and sprinted straight to the top of both the iTunes and ARIA charts featuring all the smash hits.

Don’t miss out on seeing Rudimental perform hits Feel The Love, Not Giving In, Hell Could Freeze, new single Waiting All Night and more LIVE this September…

Bursting out of London’s underground music scene with its thrilling world of pirate radio, crude DJ set ups, improvised studios, and bleeding edge beats came Rudimental (Piers Aggett, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and Leon Rolle): A pioneering melting-pot collective who have taken the British music scene by storm, championed for their uncompromising approach to music-making whilst avoiding rigid classification.

Their smash hit single Feel The Love blazed into the UK charts debuting at #1 after it premiered as the Hottest Record in the World on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1. In Australia, Feel The Love hit #1 on iTunes and peaked at #3 on the ARIA singles and national airplay charts and is triple platinum!

Follow up singles Not Giving In and Hell Could Freeze have also helped solidify the band at the top of their game, charting top 15 on the ARIA Singles Chart and being crowned as the most played & requested track on Triple J respectively. 
All of the members have worked with troubled youth and strongly advocate music as an outlet for disadvantaged kids. This attitude was mirrored beautifully in the LA Shorts Festival-winning and MOBO-nominated video clip for Feel The Love. Filmed in the US, the clip is based around the Fletcher Street Community Horse Riding Centre in Philadelphia which aims to do exactly that.

University of Canberra Refectory will host the chart topping performers on Wednesday 18th September in the limited capacity venue so get in early in order to grab a ticket. This is an all ages event.
