Sydney > In the Air



Exceptional ALIEN



Australians Hugo Gruzman and Jimmy Lyell are the duo behind Flight Facilities. Starting in Sydney's booming electronic dance scene in 2009, the pair have since taken their incredible live shows to stages from Dublin to Austin, and played at Glastonbury, Lovebox and Splendour in the Grass. With travel in their DNA — by way of Hugo’s pilot grandfather — the duo lean into flight mode, performing in pilot suits and taking audiences on a journey with every single show. It’s this perpetual motion that fuels their creativity and sharpens their musical thinking. And even with an extended layover, courtesy of two years of lockdown, Jimmy and Hugo bounced back with their record Forever, touring it across Australia, the US, Canada and the UK. Rather than landing on a single destination, Flight Facilities chose ‘In the Air’ as the theme for their Travel Playbook. We chat with Jimmy and Hugo about their favorite airports and lounges across the globe, top tips when taking off by plane — or jumping out of one — and exploring their favorite Travel Gems once they hit the ground.
