SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION & MAC MILLER

Recently adopting the moniker Snoop Lion after an inspirational trip to Jamaica, these shows will be the first time Australians will see the reinvented ‘reggae’ superstar live on stage performing a mix of Lion tracks and his greatest Dogg hits!
Joining Da Big Bo$$ Dogg on these very smooth shows is none-other than MAC MILLER, fellow-Big Day Out artist, close friend of Snoop’s and one of the brightest stars in the hip hop scene. 21 year old Mac Miller has been making huge waves in the music world with two US top #3 albums already under his belt.

This is it… One for the ages. MAJOR LAZER, SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION andFLOSSTRADAMUS are coming together for what will be the feel-good party of the season in Brisbane this Summer.

MAJOR LAZER and FLOSSTRADAMUS have let hoards of people know what’s up when they take the stage at Mad Decent’s block parties across the USA. Together they have partied and made beautiful music, with FLOSSTRADAMUS releasing a booty-droppin’ remix of MAJOR LAZER hit, ‘Original Don’, which has received millions of views online.
