Hungry Kids Of Hungary not starving of festivals in 2011
Fresh off the back of launching their debut album Escapades and now in the midst of sold out shows on their national tour, indie/pop four-piece Hungry Kids Of Hungary are ready to dominate the Australian festival circuits in 2011.
Kicking off their first taste of festival in the New Year, the Brisbane lads will pause their national album tour to perform at The Hot Barbeque in Portsea, playing alongside Roger Sanchez, Blue Juice, Gypsy & The Cat and a string of hot local acts.
After their sizzling debut at The Hot Barbeque, Hungry Kids Of Hungary continue their national album tour before landing in their hometown of Brisbane to play at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival with favourites Cloud Control, Cut Copy, The Holidays and Two Door Cinema Club.
After a short stop home, Hungry Kids Of Hungary finish up their national album tour in regional Victoria before Melbourne welcomes the lads to one of their biggest annual street festivals -- St Kilda Festival.
The home stretch of the festival circuits will see appearances at Playground Weekender in Sydney and a final stop at Good Vibrations Festival back home in Brisbane.
Watch out festival-goers because Hungry Kids Of Hungary will be bringing more than hits from their debut album on tour -- they admit they love playing pranks on anyone in their spare time.
“We spend a lot of time on iPhones, just on apps. There’s a particular app we use a lot where you distort people’s faces and make them look ridiculous and we’re quite fond of that as a time-killing device,” they tell Nova.
Hungry for pranks and coming to a festival near you… Be sure to catch Hungry Kids Of Hungary on their national Escapades tour in 2011.
