It's that time, Sydney. The city's cultural pride and joy, Sydney Festival has just released it's full lineup for 2015. It keeps getting better every year, WTH? Due to the fact that there is A LOT going on in Sydney at this year's fest, and you'll sit down and read the full program in your own time — we thought we'd give you a quick run-down on some of the best acts and shows that you should 100% book tickets to.
Firstly, Nigerian synth pioneer and afro-punk music legend William Onyeabor, will be visiting our fair shores to perform Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor. The legend of our time will be playing alongside a killer line-up featuring Gotye, Sinkane, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Luke Jenner (The Rapture), Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem) and the legendary Mahotella Queens.
Brazil’s superstar Seu Jorge will be in town, and Triple J will be presenting Beat The Drum: Celebrating 40 Years of Triple J featuring The Presets, The Preatures, You Am I and more. The Parramatta opening party will see the Paul Kelly (all praise) and Tex Perkins is putting on Johnny Cash tribute in the historic Parramatta Gaol. But that's not all!
