17 min read

FACE TO FACE TOURING is thrilled to announce +LIVE+ and INCUBUS, two of the US powerhouses of rock, will be co-headlining the inaugural LOOKOUT Festival, plus co-headline tour. 

These global concert juggernauts are coming together for a series of gigantic shows in 2024.  This brand-new festival event will see +LIVE+ and INCUBUS joined by some Aussie favourites including Birds of Tokyo, Eskimo Joe, and The Superjesus.

LOOKOUT is a live music concert event that celebrates the best of alternative rock with music that has stood the test of time, along with some fresh new sounds on the scene.  Taking place in some of Australia’s most epic outdoor locations, the atmosphere will be electric. Get amongst the waves of roaring live music in this truly unique concert experience.  LOOKOUT Festival will feature some of the most iconic names in alternative rock and rising stars making noise in the industry. This event is for those who love soaking in epic live music and rocking with their mates on a huge day out, for those who not only want to hear music but to really feel it.  LOOKOUT is where international and Australian rock unites in a unique setting to form an unforgettable and outstanding live music experience.

+LIVE+ have sold over 23 million albums worldwide and earned two number one albums: Throwing Copper and Secret Samadhi. Their catalogue is filled with such gems as “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “All Over You” and “Lakini’s Juice,” which live on today as classics on rock radio. 

Throwing Copper will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2024.  The seminal album produced the band’s biggest single, “Lightning Crashes,” which was No. 1 at Modern Rock radio for ten consecutive weeks. Rolling Stone honored the album with placement on their list, “1994: The 40 Best Records from Mainstream Alternative’s Greatest Year.” 

Secret Samadhi immediately shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went double platinum. The release of the platinum-selling The Distance to Here turned +LIVE+ into an international powerhouse and moved the band from arenas into stadiums.  The band released an acclaimed five-song EP in 2018, LOCAL 717, their first new music in over a decade.

Says Ed KowalczykIt has been way too long, and I couldn’t be happier that LIVE is finally returning to Australia for the first time in 5 years!  The band and the show is so good and so strong and the fans who have seen it so far have been extremely happy!  So, it was most definitely time to come and share it with our mates down under.  And the icing on the cake is going to be sharing the stage with Incubus for the first time. I have always been a fan of their deep vibes, intellectual lyrics, and ground-breaking musical style.  I think the pairing of our two bands is perfect in so many ways and I’m sure it will be a night to remember for all of the fans. See ya soon!”  

Since first coming together in 1991, the Grammy nominated band, Incubus, have consistently elevated themselves and alternative music to new creative heights. The California band’s sales have eclipse 23 million albums worldwide to date with multi-platinum and platinum certifications from around the globe. Consistently topping the Billboardcharts, the band has had five consecutive Top 5 debuts and they maintain their status as a streaming phenomenon, averaging 4.1 million monthly listeners on Spotify and clocking over 1 billion-plus streams across all platforms.

Says Brandon Boyd “We’re excited to come back to Australia and see everyone!  It’s been way too long so we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new friends in cities we’ve never played before!  LIVE has been a band we’ve always admired, so to share the stage with Ed and company will be something truly special.  We cant wait!”

Formed in Perth, Birds of Tokyo have grown from independent roots to become one of Australia’s most popular contemporary rock bands. The band has released six studio albums including Human Design which topped the ARIA charts. Classic songs like “Good Lord”, “Two Of Us”, “Plans”, “Lanterns”, “Brace” and “I’d Go With You Anywhere” have all been top 10 airplay hits and more than seventy Birds of Tokyo tracks have featured on Triple J, making them one of the National Youth Broadcaster’s three most played artists of this millennium. 

They have played major festivals like Splendour In The Grass & Falls and appeared as special guests for Muse, Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel and Bon Jovi.  They have also toured across Australia with some of the country’s most prestigious Symphony Orchestras. Birds of Tokyo have won “Rock Work Of The Year” on a record setting five separate occasions at the APRA Awards. 

Late 2021 the band released single “Superglue (feat. Stand Atlantic)” alongside their headlining appearance at the AFL Grand Final in Perth. Then in March this year, new single “Smith Street” was released which perhaps surprisingly for a song written during the Victorian and NSW lockdowns, celebrates the feeling of running free. 

Birds of Tokyo are currently touring playing a slew of big beachside shows under the SummerSalt banner and at the end of 2022 they took their show back to arena stages as special guests of Keith Urban on his Australian tour.

Since forming in 1997, Eskimo Joe has racked up a long list of impressive accomplishments. With 6 studio albums under their belts and sales in excess of 750,000, in Australia alone, the band has seen 3 of those albums debut at number 1 on the ARIA charts, with juggernaut ‘Black Fingernails, Red Wine’ shining for a monster 62 weeks in the ARIA Chart Top 50 and “Foreign Land”, from their fourth album ‘Inshalla’, bringing home 2 APRA Awards, for Most Played Rock Song on Australian radio and Best Rock Song of 2010.

Eskimo Joe have enjoyed 35 ARIA nominations in their career thus far – a number only surpassed by Silverchair, Powderfinger, Kylie Minogue and John Farnham. They have brought home 3 International Song-writing Awards, 11 WAMi Awards and 8 ARIAs and 11 of their compositions have featured in Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown, with ‘Black Fingernails, Red Wine’ landing 2nd place.

The stage, however, is where Eskimo Joe shine and the band have performed at many significant events including: Sound Relief, Live Earth, Make Poverty History, the ARIA Awards, the APRA Awards, Big Day Out, Homebake, Laneway Festival, Falls Festival, Southbound, Splendour In The Grass, Triple J’s One Night Stand, The Australian Open, AFL and Sundance Film Festival in Utah, USA, on the same stage as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Along with a significant number of tours within Australia, the band have had their music released to great acclaim from fans and critics alike, in the United States, Canada, Europe and Korea.

Eskimo Joe released ‘Say Something’, their first new single since 2013, globally to critical acclaim on June 26th2020. Say Something reached number 1 most played on Triple M and 11th most played song on Australian Airplay charts and won 2nd place in the rock category of the International Song writing competition.  A further brand-new single ’99 Ways’ was released on February 12th, 2021, along with a national tour in 2022.

Since bursting out of Adelaide in the mid-’90s, The Superjesus have had nine Top 50 hits, two Top 10 albums, placed five songs in Triple J’s Hottest 100, won three ARIA Awards from eight nominations, and been inducted into the South Australian Music Hall of Fame.

When The Superjesus released the Love and Violence EP in 2016, Sarah explained the title: “Fire and passion, love and war, heaven and hell … these words always seem to go hand in hand, you can’t have one without the other. Deep emotional relationships run the risk of deep emotional pain. Human nature is funny like that. Love and Violence is about looking at the oddity of emotional extremities and celebrating the immeasurable depth of human connection.”

Yep, it’s been a long and winding road for The Superjesus, but they have forged an enduring relationship with Australian rock fans.

When the band’s landmark debut album, Sumo, was released in 1998, the original disc was stamped with the mantra: Train hard, eat plenty. More than two decades on, The Superjesus remain hungry.
