With the return of Vivid Sydney just around the corner, Carriageworks have announced their mammoth lineup for the event, featuring a bevy of local and international talent.


Led by US indie icon Perfume Genius, Carriageworks will be taken over by Japan’s CHAI, Estonian artist and rapper TOMM¥ €A$H, Welsh singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Cate Le Bon, Melbourne/US metal duo Divide & Dissolve, Perth's Alter Boy, The Mystics, plus an exclusive performance from Jono Ma, Jonti and Babekühl.



Traversing genre, the dynamic lineup brings together some of the most exciting acts around the globe, creating a diverse program to celebrate the return of Vivid Sydney and live music to Carriageworks. The venues resident company Performance Space is also set to host Live Dreams, an event spread over three evenings that brings together performance and experimental art from across the Asia-Pacific. Soft Centre will make its return this year, for a one-day festival of boundary-pushing art and music that will provide an immersive experience for attendees.


“While the past two years have challenged the industry – both in Australia and overseas – live contemporary music remains a key feature and major drawcard for the Sydney cultural experience,” said Carriageworks CEO Blair French. "Carriageworks’ Vivid Sydney program curated by Tom Supple aims to welcome back audiences to share in the spirit of a reconnected world – highlighting diverse artists from home and abroad.”



Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres adds: “Vivid Sydney is a fantastic event that attracts global attention and thrives on the local community of creatives that brings the program together, such as this ongoing partnership with Carriageworks. It’s wonderful to see this popular venue present a dynamic music program as part of Vivid Sydney in 2022 which will appeal to a diverse audience.”


Vivid Sydney returns 2-11 June at Carriageworks. Curated by Tom Supple.
