Following up on the announcement that the band will perform at this year’s sold out Splendour in the Grass and Spin Off festivals PASSION PIT have confirmed that they will be playing their own headline shows around Australia and New Zealand.

PASSION PIT are fresh off the back of dual weekend performance’s at Coachella and were widely regarded as one of the best performances of the event. The LA Times claimed that ‘the band’s main stage set had the largest crowd of any Saturday afternoon’ while The Examiner stated that ‘Passion Pit’s live show is a spectacle’. This well oiled machine of a live act also recently performed a huge sold out show at New York’s Madison Square Garden, check out photos from the colossal gig HERE.

Further accomplishments for the band this year have been songs included on hit TV shows like Skins, Gossip Girl and Girls’ and performed performances at New York City’s Governors Ball, Firefly, Lollapalooza Chicago and South America, Osheaga, Outside Lands, Red Rocks and The Hollywood Bowl.
