Tame Impala will headline a two-day event next door to Optus Stadium in February.

Billed as Tame Impala Sound System, a streamlined electronic incarnation of the globetrotting Perth band fronted by studio genius Kevin Parker will perform at Stadium Park on February 26.

Fellow ARIA Award winners Lime Cordiale, the Sydney pop duo led by brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach will headline WA event SNACK the following evening.

While the full five-piece line-up of Tame Impala are due to play a twice postponed concert at RAC Arena on December 21 next year, Snack will see Tame Impala Sound System perform with an arsenal of synths, sequencers and samplers to reimagine tracks from their four hit albums, including this year’s The Slow Rush.

Parker said he looked forward to performing inside SNACK’s giant Boombox stage.

“We can’t wait to be in front of some people again and think we’re going to feel right at home inside the Boombox too,” he said.

The Fremantle-based musician is enjoying a big year, winning five ARIA awards, earning two Grammy nominations and announcing that he and his wife Sophie Lawrence Parker are expecting their first child.

Meanwhile, Lime Cordiale are riding high on the success of second album, 14 Steps to a Better You, which earned eight nominations at this year’s ARIAs but only one the breakthrough artist award.

The Triple J favourites were the only act to have four songs in the top 40 of the Hottest 100 of 2019.

In addition to the headliners, SNACK will offer a carnival atmosphere with rides and other non-musical distractions.

Tickets to both shows go on sale on Tuesday.
