Brisbane’s number one charmer Young Franco will be bringing his infectious grooves across Australia this July in headline format for the first time since 2018. Astral People and Handsome Tours are thrilled to welcome one of Australia’s most exciting producers back to the stage for some dance-inducing beats set to keep you warm this winter.
Franco’s no stranger to the scene, having now clocked over 50 million streams on Spotify alone, it’s clear Young Franco is not one to look past. Over the years he's racked up support from wide array of radio stations such such as triple j, BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM, but caught the attention of artists like RÜFÜS, Rudimental, Nvoy, Snakehips, SG Lewis, Flight Facilities, Hayden James and Alison Wonderland.
Franco has been on a roll, ticking off career highlights one after another, with plays at Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and Listen Out as well as selling out Sydney's Metro Theatre. He had his sights set on America with primetime slots at Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival and Lights All Night alongside a sold out headline tour all locked in, before being grounded with the rest of the world for 2020.
Despite being physically locked down, this didn't stop him from releasing a litany of instant ear worms in the form of ‘Juice’, a Pell assisted banger with over 8 million Spotify plays and his most recent track ‘Fallin’ Apart’ with Denzel Curry and Pell. Rapidly becoming a fan favourite, ‘Fallin’ Apart’ has amassed well over 3 million streams on Spotify in just a few months, as well as receiving praise from triple j and Purple Sneakers. It serves as a perfect refresher of Young Franco’s concise musical abilities, managing to show off so much in so little time. Again assisted by Pell but this time with an extra gravelly Denzel Curry, ‘Fallin’ Apart’ shows both rappers weave amidst bouncy piano riffs, rolling bass and robotic vocal chops to create a groove so contagious you can’t help but move.
2021 has already seen the release of the ’Fallin’ Apart’ remixes as well as a newly gold accredited ‘Miss You’. Plus, in extremely exciting news Franco's track 'Fallin Apart' received a sync in the new Apple AirPods Pro commercial which was premiered at none other than the Grammy's. With a whole host of new exciting things in the works, it's set to be a huge year Young Franco!
His unmatched, smiling stage persona greets you amidst an epic jam selection and fantastic original productions; Young Franco is here to win fans and friends alike. So, waste no time, these shows are set to be filled with the boogie-ready winter warmers that you've been waiting for via an all new live show from the man himself.
