In a market where festivals come and go, venues collapse due to bent pollies and dreams are crushed on the regular, it takes a certain amount of chutzpah to venture into the fickle world of live music.
With the help of Aussie stalwarts Chugg Entertainment and upstarts Rare Finds, Indie band Deep Sea Arcade came up with the idea to curate their own monthly events around Sydney to bring the best in up and coming talent to the dinner plates of starving Sydney music fans. It shouldn’t have worked, but my golly they’ve got their own bloody festival now.
And what a festival it promises to be! With a vague location (between Fredas and The Lord Gladstone), FREE entry and some of the best bands Australia has to offer, you’d be mad to pass up such an opportunity! And it’s part of Vivid Festival so you can use this excellent gig as a great big hanky to wipe up your ‘I-didn’t-get-Bon-Iver-tickets’ tears.
The lineup boasts headliner Kirin J Callinan (Deep Sea Arcade most humbly put themselves second on the bill), songstress Montaigne, These New South Whales, Flyying Colours and more. It’s gold, Jerry, GOLD!
VISIONS FESTIVAL will be held between Fredas and The Lord Gladstone in Chippendale. Entry is free, but limited to availability on the day.
