Beck was a part of Summersault Festival, a roving festival that went around Australia around the new year in 1995/1996. The lineup was pretty great with Sonic Youth and Beastie Boys at the top, and Beck, Foo Fighters, Pavement, Bikini Kill, and more. Initially it seems to have started as a tour for the Beastie Boys, but then all their friends wanted to tag along and it grew. The reputation now was the creative/music side of the festival was superb (with those bands, who could it not?). Despite that, in the end, the festival apparently lost a ton of money. Summersault never happened again.
I believe Beck played each show solo acoustic, usually between Sonic Youth and Beastie Boys.
Beck apparently had a really bad cold today, and didn't play his full set (only a couple of songs).
