Listen Out is the antidote to many of the things you don’t like about big music festivals. It is a carefully handcrafted party, with a killer lineup of the dance music that matters and a philosophy of best, not biggest. Say goodbye to endless timetable clashes, long hikes to the 12th stage and spending your day with several thousand people you can’t relate to. Listen Out is the right party, and we mean party not festival, for the right people.
“We are creating Listen Out because there isn’t a national dance music event that isn’t super commercial… We see a need for a return tothis simple idea: A straight up, quality dance-off in beautiful surroundings. That’s what Listen Out is” – Fuzzy Director John Wall
