Vivid LIVE has announced their first act for 2012, Sufjan Stevens. The full line-up will be announced on Thursday March 15th and this year will 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 this year, 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.”
Last year Vivid LIVE featured The Cure playing their first 3 albums in full; it’s going to be hard for Fergus to top that this year.
Vivid LIVE at Sydney Opera House is part of Vivid Sydney, which runs from May 25th to June 1th.
