After a late night meeting at Dimitri’s Pizza in 2011, Astral People was born. Operated by Tom Huggett & Vichara Edirisinghe, Astral People was established to stimulate a niche music scene within Australia, one that fosters innovative and experimental electronic artists.
Over the last 6 years, Astral People has become one of Australia’s leading music management and touring companies. Today, our management roster is comprised of 14 incredibly talented Australian musicians, whose careers we have nurtured and developed from the very beginning. Wave Racer, Roland Tings, Cosmo’s Midnight, Winston Surfshirt, Basenji, GL, Polographia, Collarbones, Dro Carey, Rainbow Chan and many more make up our family of local artists.
Astral’s touring division initially began as another avenue into the industry that would provide the means to support our growing local roster. Now, having brought over 70 international artists to Australian shores, including Stormzy, Sampha, Snakehips, Freddie Gibbs, Pantha Du Prince, Yung Lean, Chrome Sparks, Shigeto, Shura, Kornel Kovacs, Omar S, Lady Leshurr, Little Simz, NAO, Palms Trax, Nosaj Thing, DJ EZ and XXYYXX, Astral People has established itself as one of the most respected touring groups in the game. As well as curating stages at Strawberry Fields and Subsonic Music Festival, our endeavours within the Sydney party scene have culminated in the much-loved Summer Dance, OutsideIn Festival, and Astral People x Vivid Live Showcase. These events have become renowned for their boutique approach, providing punters with a unique experience to see an eclectic line-up of international and local talents.
Merging our touring division with Handsome Tours, and our local artists flourishing at home and abroad, Astral People continues to evolve into 2017.
