Hot Dub Time Machine
Beachside Stage · 9:30pm
Since launching his time-travelling, ‘dance through the decades’, audio-visual party concept in 2011, Sydney’s Tom Loud has grown his project into an absolute monster.
The Australian DJ has been welcomed by international audiences with open arms with over 200,000 tickets already sold worldwide. He’s floored crowds at Coachella and is an annual best-seller at the highly competitive Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with two of his shows the biggest in the Fringe’s entire history. He’s also blitzed the festival circuit back home in Australia, headlining Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival and more, multiple times over. His Australian headline tours have sold out back-to-back as well.
The key success of Hot Dub’s show is hinged on its widespread appeal – showcasing songs from every decade and genre of music including 60s rock, 70s disco, 80 cheese, 90s house, noughties electro and today’s radio hits. Loud then winds and weaves it into one expansive and electrifying, music lesson. Each song is played in chronological order – mixed live on turntables – and complemented with archival concert footage/music videos on massive screens while a virtual spaceship air hostess narrates the whole thing.
Hot Dub Time Machine consistently delivers stellar live performances that are near impossible not to enjoy. He pinpoints the happiest moments of your partying days past, and re-creates those moments to perfection for you all over again, intertwining them with the right here and right now in the most exhilarating way possible. His party is forever entertaining and will surely go on for years to come.
