Duane McDonald’s Red Hot Summer is to become an international event. Red Hot Summer will be held for the first time outside Australia in Bali in April.
The inaugural international Red Hot Summer festival will feature an all-Australian line-up with Daryl Braithwaite, Shannon Noll, Ross Wilson, 1927, Pseudo Echo and Jason Singh.
“It has been on the cards to take the Red Hot Summer Tour international for some time now, and the time was right to add Bali as part of the line-up for 2018,” Duane says. “Part of our commitment with the tour is taking music to areas that are not usually part of the general touring circuits, so music fans in regional areas – and now international hotspots – don’t miss out on seeing top-notch live music. We’ve already had feedback that music fans are going to travel over for the event. The Bali Red Hot Summer Tour is going to go off!”
Red Hot Summer started nine years ago with Jimmy Barnes, Shannon Noll and Adam Brand. The name Red Hot Summer evolved from the Jimmy Barnes album at the time Red Hot. Barnes headlined for the first three years and has been a regular headliner ever since.
The 2018 Australian Red Hot Summer tour will include three events headlined by Suzi Quatro, John Farnham and Icehouse. Duane is also behind the One Electric Day festival at Werribee Mansion on November 26. One Electric Day 2017 features John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite, Baby Animals, Diesel, 1927, Reece Mastin & Taylor Sheridan.
