First Vivid LIVE 2016 Artist Has Been Confirmed

Written by Rosie Pentreath on February 24, 2016

The first artist to be confirmed for Vivid LIVE Sydney 2016 has been announced. Anohni, formerly known as Antony Hegarty of Antony & The Johnsons, will play four shows as part of Vivid Sydney’s LIVE programme at the Sydney Opera House.

Anohni will be premiering tracks from her debut album as a solo artist, Hopelessness, which is co-produced with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, both of whom will join her at the shows.

She was recently nominated for a Best Original Song Oscar for her contribution to Louie Psihoyus’s documentary Racing Extinction. It was thought that she might perform her song for the documentary, Manta Ray, at the Oscars ceremony, but sadly she wasn’t invited to perform along with fellow pop star nominees Lady Gaga, Sam Smith and The Weeknd.

Vivid LIVE takes place over two weeks from 27 May to 13 June, as part of Vivid Sydney. The ticket ballot for Anohni is open from Monday 29 February until Friday 4 March and you can sign up for ticket pre-sale information here.
