Live music, performance art, live karaoke, debate and Young Henrys gin will converge on Cockatoo Island on August 1 for the artiest party of the year, the 2015 Underbelly Arts Party.
The programme includes the abstract electronica of solo artist Lucy Cliche, a brand new collaboration between Cassius Select and Thomas William dubbed T. Morimoto and Fake, chunyin and CORIN in live format, Austin Buckett, Megan Alice Clune, Pip Stafford, Soft Power, Daniel Jenatsch, and Alex Kiers and Claire Finneran.
Meanwhile, a slew of comedians, artists, radio personalities and writers will get together to debate the topic 'Originality Is Overrated'. Mish Grigor will be doing the hosting and scheduled speakers include Dan Ilic (ABC Radio), Amala Groom (artist), Michael Hing (Good Game), Wendy Zukerman (Science Vs podcast), David Capra (artist) and Kate Britton (curator/writer).
Once the performances have wrapped (and you've enjoyed a Young Henrys gin or several), it'll be your turn to contribute, when the Goodgod House Band takes over with live karaoke. If going home looks like too much of a downer after all this fun, go ahead and stay the night — ticketholders score up to 30 percent off glamping and camping packages, as well as full access to the Underbelly Arts Festival.
