Illy Music

Off the back of his new smash single Heard It All, snowballing emcee Illy hits the Hotel Great Northern giving punters the first chance to hear material from his soon-to-be-released third album Bring It Back, live and in the flesh.

In support will be Chasm Soundsystem feat. Scryptcha. Illy’s sophomore album The Chase spawned the powerful and well-loved singles Cigarettes (Triple J Hottest 100 #25), The Chase and the gold-selling It Can Wait featuring Owl Eyes (Triple J Hottest 100 #29). It took him on two sold-out headline tours, an endless list of festival bills and scored both ARIA and AIR award nominations.

ILLY has thrown more fuel on the fire with Heard It All. And with a new album on the way, this is just a taste of what’s to come.

See Illy on Saturday at the Hotel Great Northern.
