Australian Tour March 2019
Handsome Tours are thrilled to announce that Minnesota indie-pop five-piece Hippo Campus will be making the trip down under for the very first time in 2019.
The Minnesota natives are set to light up stages in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, alongside their previously announced Adelaide Festival show in March. They will be joined by special guests The Vanns for all East Coast dates and Georgia June in Sydney.
Hippo Campus’s inaugural Australian visit will see them hit the road off the back of their sophomore LP ‘Bambi’ – released in September on Transgressive Records (Julia Jacklin, Flume, SOPHIE, Alvvays).
Filled with tracks that endlessly morph in mood and texture, the five-piece approached the making of the album with an eye toward the undoing of any distorted, social-media-fuelled perceptions of the band.
Throughout ‘Bambi’, Hippo Campus match their self-examination with a blissful, adventurous sonic approach. Cruisy vocals, delicate guitar lines, skittering beats and shimmering synth make up their signature and inventive sound.
With slots at some of the world’s most revered festivals including Lollapalooza, Reading and Bonnaroo to their name, be sure to experience the frenetic yet fragile beauty of Hippo Campus on their very first Australian tour in March 2019.
