UPDATE: Wednesday, July 14 2021 — In light of Greater Sydney's current COVID-19 situation, Vivid Sydney has been postponed till Friday, September 17–Saturday, October 9. Further details are yet to be announced, but we'll be sure to keep you updated. For more information, visit the event's website. For more information about the status of COVID-19 in NSW, head to the NSW Health website.


Consistently offering some of Sydney's most thrilling live music and art experiences, Carriageworks has outdone itself for Vivid Sydney this year. Punk group Amyl & The Sniffers are set to bring their brand of breakneck raucousness to the venue on August 20. Influential MC and proud Barkindji woman Barkaa, rising neo-soul star Akosia and experimental Brisbane band Tropical F*ck Storm are also on the music program.

The headliner grabber, though, is Melbourne's prolific King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, who are rattling through their bumper catalogue over five consecutive nights (August 22–26), each with a different genre as its theme. If that wasn't enough, Cantina OK!  will be gracing the venue as a part-bar, part-nightclub and part-artwork pop-up from Thursday, August 19 to Saturday, August 28.
