When good things come together, everybody wins. For the good folk of Sydney’s promoter and management company Astral People and, of course, the touring operations of Handsome Tours, it was only natural that their audience was catered for. With both boutique companies partnering up to deliver a new ethos of electronic, hip-hop and DJ tours, we’re looking forward to the exciting new opportunities for artists all over the world to get down to Australia.
“Over 4 short years, Astral People have grown into one of the most forward-thinking and inventive promoters in Australia, bringing some of the world’s best electronic acts to our shores“, noted Handsome Tours promoter Mark Dodds about the newfound partnership, “they possess the same commitment to quality and building career artists that Handsome prides itself upon“.
Also commenting on the possibilities of the partnership, Astral People’s co-director Vic Edirisinghe reflected in their press release, “Handsome Tours and their parent company, Inertia, have been huge inspirations for us since day one. It’s truly an honour to announce that we’ll be working side-by-side on future tours for the artists that we both love“.
With both companies having handed and promoting the likes of The xx, The War On Drugs, The National, SBTRKT, Future Islands, Asgeir, BadBadNotGood, Nosaj Thing, Snakehips, Giraffage and many more, the new division of Astral People Touring will not only connect renowned artists, but also upcoming, existing under record label Inertia, live music arm Handsome Tours, publishing company GaGa Music and Inertia Management.
