Kid Koala is back behind the Deltron 3030 turntables and is touring with the band in support of their sophomore release Deltron 3030 Event 2, which came out worldwide in October of 2013. 13 years after Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Dan the Automator and Kid Koala first collaborated on the eponymous debut - they're hitting major cities and festivals with a 16-piece string band.
Kid Koala will be participating at the Luminato Festival in many ways this June 2014:
Catch him for the world premiere of NUFONIA MUST FALL LIVE, for the world premiere of THE LOST TRAIN, as a featured artist of TASTE OF THE BEACH, and a featured artist of TAKE ON ME!
Composer/Turntablist Kid Koala and Fred Morin, co-founder of famous Montreal restaurant Joe Beef, both discovered their passion for trains. This exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime experience is open to eight people per journey, with only 12 journeys in total. Each journey comes complete with drinks and delicious eats. The Lost Train is an amazing opportunity to have these stars of the music and food scene play and cook for you, as though in your own living room. Your body will be fully fed by these masters of their crafts, while your soul might discover the sweet hunger for places and thoughts you have not travelled to before. Luminato Festival: June 10, 11, 12, 2014.
Directed by K.K. Barrett, Featuring Kid Koala and the Afiara Quartet, NUFONIA MUST FALL LIVE is a graphic novel animated in real time with a live soundtrack. Premiering at the Luminato Festival in Toronto, Canada, on June 7, 8 and 9, the show is also being premiered at the Eric Harvie Theatre in Banff, Canada on May 31.
