The Vivid LIVE 2012 line-up has now been announced. This year we’ll see Florence and The Machine perform with the Ceremonial Orchestra; Karen O in STOP THE VIRGENS, a Psycho Opera, which will take over the Sydney Opera House; Amon Tobin Live Beyond 3D; and PVT with the already announced Sufjan Stevens.
This year we see an end to the celebrity curator. Previous years have seen the likes of Brian Eno, Lou Reed/Laurie Anderson and Steven Pavlovic curate the festival. This year festival Director Fergus Linehan will put the line-up together, where he will be “cultivating artist-driven projects including unique collaborations, one-off projects and special events that take over all the venues and spaces of the House, including the iconic Lighting the Sails.”
Tickets on sale to the General Public Thursday 22 March, 9am (Insiders: 19 March, Vivid LIVE subscribers: 20 March).
