The 046 are heading to Geelong on their first national headline tour

This will be The 046's biggest run of shows off the back of their wildly successful last 12 months.

Brash and brazen, The 046 are West Sydney’s most exciting rap powerhouse and they are embarking on their first-ever national tour to celebrate the release of their new album, Rhythm & Gutta.

With several viral releases starting with the street classics ‘Runnin’ Game’ and ‘Run Run’, to the latest anthems ‘Still G’s’ and ‘Keep It Different’, The 046 are cementing their position as one of the hottest rap groups in the country. They’ll kick off the tour in Frankston on 10 August, and head to stages in Melbourne, Geelong, Newcastle, Wollongong, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Maroochydore, Hobart, Adelaide and Bunbury before finishing up in Perth on 16 September.

Locally you can catch them at the Barwon Club Hotel in Geelong on Saturday, 12 August 2023.

A breath of fresh air in a crowded local scene the heralded return of ET, Kymza, Ronza and their best mate Jizza are ready to take on the world with their unique take on G-funk infused Hip Hop. A voice for the public housing suburb of Claymore, The 046 have amassed tens of millions of streams and views in the last 12 months alone. Their following is strong, loyal and widespread having sold out their first ever headline show in Sydney in 2022 in less than two weeks.

In the group’s own words: “Our new album ‘Rhythm & Gutta’ represents a new chapter for us all. We’ve poured our hearts and souls into this project and we’re excited to share it with our fans around the world. It’s a reflection of our experiences, our struggles, and our vision for the future. We hope our fans can join us on our tour and celebrate the album.”

With strong ties to their Western Sydney community, the impressive progress the group has made in the past 12 months demonstrates that independent artists can indeed thrive in a saturated market through genuine fan engagement and authentic connections.
