Line-ups announced for Vivid LIVE’s Studio Parties
With the iconic Kraftwerk in the building for eight shows, this year’s Vivid LIVE was already looking special. Now, with the announcement of the Studio Parties, it’s looking like an even better time to be in Sydney. Vivid LIVE has invited underground mainstays like Future Classic, GoodGod Danceteria!, Astral People and Club Kooky to transform the Opera House’s Studio and Western Foyers, each weekend of Vivid LIVE.
On Saturday 25 May, Future Classic will present UK beatmaker Lapalux and Norway’s own Cashmere Cat, alongside Michael Di Francesco in his Touch Sensitive guise and Brisbane producer-to-watch Charles Murdoch. Goodgod Danceteria! will once again bring the party with an anything-goes line-up headed by RiFF RAFF. Then it’s over to Astral People, with the much-anticipated return of Detroit gun Omar S for an extended set. Astral People has also locked drum & bass shapeshifter Jon Convex, Cliques, Dro Carey and more.
Already sold out, Sydney queer institution Club Kooky will return on Sunday 2 June to celebrate their 18th birthday as Seymour Butz and DJ Gemma get down with the Hercules & Love Affair crew. Expect disco, house and lots of unhinged fun. Tickets for the other Studio Parties are on sale, and won’t last long.
