On the in with Outkast

With Hey Ya! Ms Jackson, B.O.B. – Rosa Parks… so many monster hits, heading up the list of awesome first-day gigs at Splendour 2014 is Outkast.

With 25 million albums sold globally, two albums enshrined in Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list and celebrating 20 years of making music, Outkast are one of the most successful hip-hop groups of all time. It is impossible to quantify the creative impact and influence of this six-time Grammy-award-winning rap duo.

With successful solo albums, blockbuster films and award-winning fashion lines, together and individually, these Atlanta natives continue to raise the bar for originality and creativity.

Get ready to claim your space in the Amphitheatre (100 per cent FOMO guaranteed if you’re not in there!) and shake it like a Polaroid picture with Outkast at Splendour 2014.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
