Acclaimed Swedish rapper Yung Lean will return to Australia early next year for his third tour of the country.

Already confirmed to be performing at Field Day 2023 in Sydney alongside the likes of Yeat and Denzel Curry, Yung Lean has added two headline shows to his forthcoming Australian visit.

The rapper will perform at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Monday, January 9th, followed a show at The Forum in Melbourne the following day (see full details below).

It’s almost a decade since Yung Lean burst onto the scene as a teenager with the hugely viral hit ‘Ginseng Strip 2002’, and it’s been a steady ascent to the top of global hip hop since then.

An intense performer traversing subgenres like cloud rap and emo rap, the rapper has become one of the most sought-after performers on the festival circuit.

Yung Lean released the well-received mixtape Stardust earlier this year, which featured the most high-profile collaborations of his career with the likes of FKA twigs and Skrillex.

Stardust ushered Yung Lean’s music into a new era of experimentation. “The Swedish artist’s new mixtape is the next step in his shedding the mantle of wannabe rapper and fully embracing a more comfortable role as a pop experimentalist,” Pitchfork noted in a highly positive review.
