Origin Presents are extremely excited to announce the iconic Origin NYE event will expand to a two-day format and relocate back to Perth's city centre at Langley Reserve with a new musical direction. The newly branded Origin Fields Festival is the largest New Year's Eve event in Western Australia.
After celebrating 11 great years as a boutique festival, Origin has grown to become the biggest music event to be staged in Perth, bringing together some of the world's most prominent acts over the years including; A$AP Rocky, DJ Snake, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T, Die Antwoord, Pendulum, Schoolboy Q, Stormzy and emerging new talent to the capital.
The promoters will continue to bring world-class artists to our shores and support local tourism by bringing thousands of visitors to the WA capital each year.
The Origin brand is proud to embrace change and acknowledges the broad range of musical taste in Perth as a whole, confirming they will diversify the line-up in 2018. The focus is to ensure the event caters to all patrons and provides variety. The headline artists are expected to be revealed in the near future.
The announcement comes as the Origin team shared the exciting developments to the brand across social media and with a personal letter to the fans.
"I started Origin when I was twenty with a team that has grown with me from the beginning, we are extremely proud of what we have created over the past 11-years. From booking "sub culture" acts and watching the music we love gradually become the mainstream. It's been a crazy ride.
Time changes things, in this case we have a new dream. To become an event that anyone in Perth can attend to celebrate the new year.
We can't thank Perth, our interstate and international travellers enough for their continual support. Without their passion, Origin wouldn't be the monster it is today.
In light of that, we are extremely excited to announce that Origin will be moving back to the city centre at Langley Reserve in 2018 over December 30 & 31 and will be rebranded as Origin Fields".
Line-up announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
