DETOUR MARCH 2005
Channel [V] Billabong Bus Returns

In March 2005, Channel [V] and partner in crime Billabong will again join forces to present DETOUR - the bus tour extravaganza, which has grown from an idea to a phenomenon.

The DETOUR was conceived of a simple and compelling premise. Take a custom built bus and combine the dimension of a travelling road show with the best bands on offer. Add the thrill of live television, pro skaters and audiences in their thousands and magic is created.

DETOUR 05 will kick off in Townsville and will travel the East Coast of Australia to make live television with a collection of Australia's highest profile music artists and the world's best skaters.

The tour will also feature two of Australia's most popular TV presenters. Channel [V]'s Andrew G and James Mathison, fresh from their phenomenal success on Australian Idol will be hosting the DETOUR shows, which will be broadcast live around Australia. Respected MC and Channel [V] presenter Maya Jupiter will also be joining the Detour to do her thing with local crowds.

In addition to the live music stage and cameras, the biggest mobile vert ramp in the Southern Hemisphere will be the centrepiece of each show. The Billabong skate team from Europe and America are flying out for the tour and a mobile street skating stage will also be created at each event. Its the only skate event of its kind in Australia that tours some of the best skaters around with one of the biggest vert ramps around.

Aside from the skating and live music, DETOUR will feature the Channel [V] Confessional Booth where punters spill the beans about things they've done that is fruity, nutty or just plain wrong.

Detour is the only tour of its kind. The 05 tour with its partnerships with Billabong, Foxtel, Austar, EMAP, CityBeach will build on the success and profile of previous tours and put the concept as a regular fixture on the music and skate calendar.

The previous DETOUR attracted more than 50,000 fans who came out in droves to experience live bands, pro skaters and the Channel [V] presenters in events that were broadcast nationally on Channel [V].

Previous music acts that have performed live for DETOUR include Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Grinspoon, Good Charlotte, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, Magic Dirt, The Living End, Spiderbait, Eskimo Joe and 28 Days and many more.

The DETOUR experience is a must for every fan of rock, hip-hop music and skate culture. Stay tuned for further information on music performances and skaters.

THE CHANNEL [V] BILLABONG DETOUR GUEST ARTISTS ANNOUNCED

Channel [V] Billabong DETOUR announces some of Australia's and NZ's acts will be appearing at the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Tweed Heads shows. Read on and get on board with Detour!

Sunshine Coast - THE CAT EMPIRE & SCRIBE & JOEL TURNER
One of the brighest stars in the Oz music sky, THE CAT EMPIRE make music that is sublime, dark, funny, unique, bright, and moody all at once. They've quickly gone from strength to strength with their spirited live shows becoming audience favourites around the nation. THE CAT EMPIRE join DETOUR on the SUNSHINE COAST in Kawana and will have fans dancing to their uptempo reggae meets hip hop meets jazz and will leave you buzzing and with a twinkle in your eye for more!

SCRIBE is undoubtedly the brightest star of New Zealand's much-celebrated hip-hop scene. He has already cemented his name in hip-hop's underground with his raw talent for a rap style that's at once witty, conversational, emotive, and inspiring. He has had massive success in Australia with the infectious singles Not Many - The Remix! And Stand Up. SCRIBE will have DETOUR audiences' hands in the air on the SUNSHINE COAST and in BRISBANE.

JOEL TURNER & the Modern Day Poets, Australian Idol's biggest surprise discovery and the sound of the streets 2005. A spectacular beatbox artist, Joel formed the Modern Day Poets with his brother, Dub LT, and their cousin, C4. Together they make hip hop with a human beat box; - a bit of rap and a bit of rock, and of course a bit of guitar from Joel to keep it real. Their first offering was the haunting gold selling single 'These Kids', and they followed up in 2005 with the killer single 'Knock You Out' featuring Anthony Mundine. Catch JOEL TURNER's inspiring performance at DETOUR on the SUNSHINE COAST.

Brisbane - SCRIBE & EVERMORE
For a band that only really kicked in during 2000, and whose most senior member is all of 20, New Zealand band EVERMORE (now based in Oz) has taken off in leaps and bounds. Their knockout debut album Dreams has music writers scrambling to find new superlatives to describe it. This is teen spirit at its finest. With an album that could move mountains EVERMORE delight audiences at DETOUR at TWEED HEADS.

Tweed Heads - EVERMORE & THE RESIN DOGS & FIGGKIDD
Brisbane boys THE RESIN DOGS are synonymous with massive energy, huge crowds and an infectious rollcall of rhythms. A hot blend of cut and paste sampling, funk, hip hop, breakbeat and frenetic live energy THE RESIN DOGS bring their musical mayhem to DETOUR at TWEED HEADS.

FIGGKIDD at the fly age of 21 is one of the most dynamic new act to emerge from Australia in the last five years. His debut album WHAT IS FIGGKIDD is an outrageously accomplished sonic romp that mashes hip hop, rock and myriad other influences into a sound so fresh it can only be described as Figg-hop. With live performances awash with melody, lyrical wit, and powerful MCing FIGGKIDD will rock the mic for DETOUR at TWEED HEADS.

Aussie Friggin Hip Hop - the search for Australia's best MC sees Channel [V] getting right behind Aussie hip hop to give it the recognition it deserves and shine the spotlight on local MCs. The DETOUR shows will serve as heats for aspiring rappers, freestylers and MCs with the winners from each state being flown to Sydney for the grand final in April to battle it out for MC supremacy. The winner will be flown to LA to have a single produced by the critically lauded KUTMASTA KURT who has worked with the who's who of hip hop and has released the classics 'Dr Octagon' and 'Masters of Illusion' featuring Kool Keith and Motion Man. He has also remixed Blackalicious and the Beastie Boys to name a few. The winner will also get a video clip produced by [V] and their single released digitally. To enter, call 1900 956 385 (calls charged at 55cents/minute). For more info: www.channelv.com.au

As well as music, DETOUR presents fans a skating extravaganza not to be missed.
Each DETOUR event will feature a mobile vert skate ramp which will be the centrepiece of each show. Standing 13 feet tall and 40 feet wide the Billabong Vert Ramp was built to World Cup specifications and is the widest world-class ramp in the Australia.
