Vivid Sydney is gearing up for its tenth anniversary and it has one epic lineup. At Carriageworks alone, an artistic program of music, screen, creative thinking and visual art will take over from May 24. And it's being headlined by Grammy Award-winning artist St. Vincent, who will take the house down with a live performance on June 17.
St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) has been rocking the music game for over a decade now, with breakout hits from 2007's 'The Apocalypse Song' to 2017's 'Los Ageless'. The indie-pop luminary is oft referred to as the "female Bowie".
For those who aren't already huge fans, we suggest putting her fifth album, Masseduction, on repeat now. The meta-pop album, which is both strange and moving, was released to critical acclaim in 2017, cracking the top 10 on the Billboard 200.
This year marks Carriageworks' fifth Vivid program, which also includes design forum Semi Permanent, Clipped Music Video Festival and electronic and dance event Curve Ball. In 2017 London's electronic duo Goldfrapp headlined, preceded by Bjork in 2016, who took over the precinct with a huge virtual reality project.
Needless to say, the multi-arts centre is known for putting on ambitious programs, and this year is slated to be another big one.
