Airlie is Benson’s Backyard | Whitsunday Times – Australia News


WHEN asked what his last song on Spotify was, Benson replied, My Heart Will Go On, by Celine Dion.

But don’t let that put you off.

Dubbed as everything your parents love to hate, Benson will be shredding Magnum’s DJ decks this Saturday night.

Part of the national Benson Backyard tour, the DJ, producer and label boss will come from Townsville to play in Airlie Beach.

He may be familiar from festival line-ups including Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival, Listen Out, Southbound, Stereosonic and Parklife.

Melbourne based Benson spends a lot of time travelling Australia and abroad playing loud, sub base driven house music, drinking dangerous amounts of alcohol and staying up way past his bedtime.

“I’ve been to Magnums before with Peking Duck in 2014 and I’ve played at Boom, but I’m popping my cherry as the first time headlining there,” Benson said.

“It’s going be a big fun party set, expect some inappropriate language at times but good vibes are guaranteed.”

Known for his loud, fun and extremely offensive sets; if you enjoy good music, having a laugh and high fives then you should line up for doors opening at 9pm.

Magnums venue manager Jarryd Barclay said expect to get rowdy.

“It’s going to be a big night so make sure you bring your dancing shoes,” he said.

“The best part is – it’s free, so come along and have a good one on us.

“The event is 18+ so bringing your photo ID is essential.”

Headliner Benson will be joined by Magnums resident DJ Dirty Treble.

Benson has worked with labels such as Sweat It Out, Ministry Of Sound and Sony BMG while still finding time to manage his very own boutique label “Medium Rare Recordings”
