G Flip is heading to Torquay in their first Australian headline tour in four years

Melbourne-born artist, producer and drummer G Flip has just announced an eight-date national run for August/September 2023.

Fresh from just announcing their debut US headline shows, the multi-talented drummer, singer, songwriter and producer G Flip — aka Georgia Flipo — has announced a return home to Australia this year for a huge run of shows.

Marking their first headline tour of Australia since 2019, the DRUMMER Australian tour will kick off in August and see the star perform eight huge shows in Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide, Perth, Torquay, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.

Locally, you’ll be able to catch G Flip at the Torquay Hotel in Torquay on 31 August with special guest Jacoténe.

Transcending boundaries and expectations, G Flip is becoming the role model they never had growing up. A near-lifelong musician who took up drumming at just nine-years-old, the rising superstar makes the kind of high-powered rock/pop that could only come from the heart and mind of a drummer.

First heard on triple j, last month saw the release of new single ‘Be Your Man’ (out now via Future Classic), a track showcasing G’s insightful and reflective songwriting talent and building upon the vulnerability they have become revered for with their music.

Having delivered 2018 debut smash single ‘About You’ – named Best New Track by Pitchfork, with Rolling Stone hailing G Flip as an ‘Artist You Need To Know’ – G Flip matches their potent musicianship with equal parts sonic originality and fantastically outspoken point-of-view (an element informed by their experience as a queer, non-binary artist). They sealed their status as a major festival drawcard with their early, debut performance at Byron’s Splendour In The Grass back in 2018, while last year’s massive return – which saw the drummer performing one-handed! – immediately became the stuff of legend. For the past few years G has dominated triple j’s Hottest 100, the biggest listener voted music poll in the world. 2019 debut About Us has amassed more than 180 million streams to date and debuted on #1 on the ARIA vinyl charts and #6 on Album charts.
