Nova’s Red Room Future Music Festival Edition presented by Smirnoff kicked off with two of the hottest Future Music festival acts at the Bondi Beach venue, The Bucket List, on Wednesday 25 February 2015.
These two performances were a small teaser for what will occur at the Future Music Festival in Sydney on Saturday 28 February 2015.
The first act was Australia’s own Timmy Trumpet, a Sydney musician, who started his music career by playing jazz music with his trumpet. The second act was international artist Example, whose real name Elliot Gleave.
Example returns to stage for first time since the birth of his two-month-old son Evander to his model wife, Erin McNaught. He will then perform in the Philippines on March 13 for his Live Life Living tour, just days after the Australian festival concludes. Then, he will travel to China to play several shows there, before heading to Europe in June. It appears that the current string of shows may be his last for some time as he focuses on his new family.
Timmy Trumpet warmed up the crowd by playing his beats and jumping on the decks (literally) playing his trusty brass trumpet. Example performed some of his more underground tunes as well as a host of his epic classics.
Smirnoff Vodka cocktails were flowing while canapés were circulated to guests who comprised mostly of Nova competition winners and Sydney’s reality stars such as Big Brother’s Ryan Ginns and Jake Richardson.
These two acts will join a line up of musical talent that will make their way around the country for the festival, which started in Sydney on Saturday 28 February 2015
Others in the Future Music line up include US rapper Drake in his first Australian tour, DJ’s Avicii and Afrojack and electronic dance group The Prodigy. The festival will make its way to Perth on Sunday 1 March 2015, before moving on to Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
