Time to boogie.

Put on your dancing shoes because UK outfit Hot Chip have revealed they’re heading around the country for a string of festival sideshows in 2020.

Hot Chip released their seventh studio record, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, back in July, which yours truly described as “an applaudable endeavour from these techno dancehall legends”. To celebrate its release, the five-piece will be heading to Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in addition to their previously announced appearances at Golden Plains and Farmer and the Owl.

The crew will be supported by a live set from Melbourne funk DJ Harvey Sutherland on all sideshow dates excluding Canberra.

Sunday March 8 — Golden Plains, Meredith VIC
