Flume is set to take his fans back to one of the highlights of his career, announcing a livestream of his 2019 Red Rocks performance this week.
The stream was announced earlier today, just one month on from what was supposed to be the Sydney-born artist’s triumphant return to the iconic Colorado venue for a three-night celebration of his career.
Set to air this Friday, the performance will be streamed at 11am AEST on Friday, July 17th via Flume’s YouTube Channel, Future Classic’s Twitch Channel, and on Playstation via the Littlstar app, with an exclusive television simulcast on MTV Australia’s Club MTV.
The performance took place as part of the artist’s two-night Flume & Friends shows in August of 2019, and marked the fourth time he played the legendary venue.
Accompanied by friends and collaborators such as slowthai, Vera Blue, Reo Cragun, and JPEGMAFIA, the sold-out show came in the middle of a massive year for the producer, with his Hi This Is Flume mixtape having been released months earlier, and a run of successful singles helping to highlight the year.
Flume was originally set to return to Red Rocks back in June, having announced back in March that he would revisit the Flume & Friends format, with high multi-night residency set to feature “3 nights celebrating 3 eras of Flume music”, and boasting appearances from Clams Casino, KUÇKA, Cashmere Cat, and more.
Unfortunately, these performances were soon cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw lockdown restrictions coming into effect mere days after the shows were announced.
Similarly, Flume’s headline appearance at Splendour in The Grass has also been affected by the global pandemic. While the festival was originally postponed to 2021, organisers revealed yesterday that his place atop the bill has been replaced by Gorillaz due to scheduling conflicts. Fellow headliners The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator will still appear at the festival as planned.
