Tame Impala has been announced as a headliner for this year’s Coachella Festival. The performance will take place on Saturday, April 13 and Saturday, April 20. Kevin Parker said via Instagram, “New year. New shows. New sounds.”
Tame Impala has also been confirmed to play this year’s Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, GA (May 3 – May 5) and Barcelona’s Primavera Festival (May 30 – June 2). Tame Impala is Kevin Parker. His last album Currents (Interscope) was released in 2015 earning a second GRAMMY nomination and worldwide critical acclaim. The New York Times labeled it a “a tour de force” and Pitchfork said, “nearly every proper song on Currents is a revelatory statement of Parker’s range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala.” NPR noted, “[Parker] advocates for constant reinvention… That commitment to evolution helps make Tame Impala an unlikely but worthy candidate for major stardom.”
Hailing from Perth, Australia, he first toured the U.S. in 2010, playing small clubs for crowds of 200. A handful of trips to the U.S. later and thanks to the ravenous demand of fans for the band’s transcendent live performance, Tame Impala has gone on to headline festivals and theatres around the world and released three full-length albums – Innerspeaker, Lonerism and Currents. As a writer and producer Parker has collaborated with Travis Scott, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Kanye West, Kali Uchis, Theophilus London, Miguel, A$AP Rocky and more.
