Bilingual media release - Music talent transforms city venues for Vivid Sydney

From a barbershop and a church to a brewery and cosy restaurants, venues across inner Sydney will feature a host of established and up-and-coming artists for Vivid Sydney 2019.

Much loved music hotspots like The Lansdowne and Freda’s in Chippendale and The Vanguard in Newtown will also take part in this curated Vivid Music program that will bring more than 170 performances by 73 artists to 24 venues over 23 days.

The Vivid X|Celerate program of events for this year’s festival is designed to boost the growth of Sydney’s live music scene with support from the City of Sydney.

Renowned artists like Katie Noonan, The Catholics and Renee Geyer are programmed alongside local, emerging acts like Kim Churchill and I Know Leopard, ensuring the program has broad appeal and is giving artists the opportunity to perform to new audiences.

As part of Vivid X|Celerate, the City and the NSW Government are providing cash and in-kind support to each venue to enable them to curate, promote and market their own live music programs.

“This partnership with the NSW Government is about ensuring local venues are part of Vivid Sydney and benefitting from the tens of thousands of visitors it brings to our city,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.

“This is the third year we have collaborated on Vivid X|Celerate, which shines a light on our local music industry which is enlivening the city all year round, and sees cultural activity taking place in unusual locations.

“It is also the eleventh year we have joined with Vivid Sydney, as the Southern Hemisphere’s largest festival of light, music and ideas, to profile our city and its culture, creativity, and public spaces.”

The City spends more than $37 million each year supporting culture development in Sydney, including world-class events like Vivid Sydney, grants and sponsorships, public art programs and community facilities.

Vivid Music curator Stephen Ferris said the festival was significant for the Harbour City in profiling Sydney as the hub of creative industries of Asia and the Pacific.

“Vivid Music is a diverse and dynamic program that complements the creativity and innovation showcased across Vivid Light and Vivid Ideas,” Mr Ferris said.

“It’s exciting to bring together some of the leading artists from around the world, the country and the state to shine bright on this international platform – Vivid Sydney – which is the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.”

Other major attractions in the city area during Vivid Sydney include:

Customs House      Under the Harbour
