(Australia) Summer’s biggest line-up just got a whole lot hotter! Future Music and Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce that one of the most influential and groundbreaking artists in modern music, Pharrell Williams, will tour Australia in March as a headlining addition to 2014’s Future Music Festival in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
“Australia is such a fun place for music – I’ve always had amazing experiences there. Looking forward to seeing all the fans come out for Future Music Festival – can’t wait to perform and show them my gratitude.”
Singer, rapper, producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur: is there anything Pharrell Williams can’t do? The 40-year-old was behind the two biggest tracks of 2013: Robin Thicke’s gigantic ‘Blurred Lines’ and Daft Punk’s mammoth ‘Get Lucky’. With millions of copies sold, Williams holds the honour of being only the 12th artist in US Billboard chart history to simultaneously hold both the number one and two positions. Then, in November 2013 he rewrote the rules yet again, delivering another chart-topper in solo single ‘Happy’.
GQ Magazine’s ‘Hitmaker of the Year’ is currently working on his highly anticipated second solo album, due out via Columbia/Sony Music Australia. It will be the follow-up to 2006’s In My Mind. Williams is also currently slated to do production work on brand new cuts by Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson, Major Lazer, T.I., Pusha T, and Busta Rhymes. Come April 2014, he’ll headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.
