About Origin NYE

Origin NYE began in 2006 for a New Year music festival held at Belvoir Amphitheatre. Now approaching its tenth year, Origin has consolidated itself as Perth’s premier urban and underground event, held across various locations in Perth, welcomed dozens of international artists and greeted thousands of party goers through our gates. In 2016 we’re excited to celebrate our anniversary in what is set to be our biggest party to date, and Perth’s largest music festival in the calendar year.

With a talent line up that’s grown immensely in its musical diversity over the years, Origin festival is now the destination event for rap, hip hop, dubstep, bass and house heads in Perth city – and beyond. At the height of the Perth summer, on the cusp of the New Year, you’re invited to be a unique part of this special gathering of your favourite artists from across the globe.
