Pendulum just announced their first Australian show since 2011

With superstars like A$AP Rocky, Die Antwoord and Chance the Rapper already locked in for their 2016 edition, this year’s Origin NYE bill has no shortage of headliners. But that hasn’t stopped Origin adding one seriously big name to the mix: they’ve just scored an exclusive set from D&B pioneers Pendulum.

Perth’s original bass heroes will be coming home to play their first Australian show since 2011 this New Year’s Eve. All three original members of Pendulum  – Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and Paul Harding – will reunite on the Origin stage for an exclusive DJ set, in what’s to be their only Australian show this season.

The WA exports went live as Pendulum for the first time in years this March at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, even bringing out Swire’s Ghosts N Stuff collaborator Deadmau5 for a cameo. Their last Australian tour, however, was way back in 2011 with the now-defunct Future Music Festival.

Origin NYE hits Perth’s Claremont Showgrounds on December 31; tickets are on sale now.
