The master is back! SunControlSpecies has been announced for Rainbow Serpent’s 20th anniversary event in January 2017, sending a ripple of excitement through the Australian festival community.
While many thought his performances in 2012 were indeed his last, SCS has performed a couple of sneaky shows in the past 12 months and we had suspicion (totally unfounded of course!) that a return to Australia’s mightiest festival for its big birthday might be on the cards.
Whether or not this means a return to more regular touring remains to be seen, but whatever it is, it’s a nice time to be alive!
SunControlSpecies isn’t the only act dragging themselves out of retirement or hiatus mode for the 20th birthday.
Australian live trance masters Mantrix (made up of Richard Hinkson from Interpulse and Ben Last from Temple Step Project) will also return to the stage, alongside RSF don Sugar, who hasn’t been playing out for a while but has a new album in the works and a whole new live show ready to go.
Add to this an absolutely blockbuster line-up from the full gamut of the electronic music spectrum, including Extrawelt, Andhim, Perfect Stranger, Guy J, Guy Mantzur, Mathew Jonson, Dusty Kid, D-Nox and Beckers, ANNA, Wehbba, Eelke Kleijn, Justin Jay, Patrice Bumel, Cid Inc, Roger Martinez, Rampue, Antix/Fiord, Opiuo, Jamie Stevens, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Steve Ward, Interpulse, GMJ, Matter, Thankyou City, Uone and loads more, and the 20th anniversary is shaping up to be of the biggest events in Australian history!
