Music At The House Unveils Gigantic Summer Lineup

Written by Tom Williams on November 4, 2014

The Sydney Opera House’s 2015 Music At The House summer program is a biggie. The venue’s contemporary music program will present 20 performances between December 2014 and April 2015, with artists such as Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li, beat-wizard Flying Lotus, synth-pop outfit Little Dragon and the ever-controversial Sinead O’Connor set to play the building’s iconic Concert Hall.

Also included in the venue’s very impressive summer lineup are performances from Canada’s Daniel Victor Snaith, aka Caribou and English singer-songwriter Ben Howard. There are also Sydney-exclusive shows from Scottish post-rock icons Mogwai, Swedish-born Neneh Cherry and her collaborators Rocketnumbernine, The Gipsy Kings, guitar gods Rodrigo y Gabriela, Angélique Kidjo & Mavis Staples, and a performance of the Lynchian retrospective In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited.

2015 Music At The House summer tickets go on sale to the general public at 9am Monday, 10th November, with pre-sales only available to Sydney Opera House e-newsletter subscribers. Full program dates and details below.

Lykke Li

Lykke Li will be in the country for Laneway Festival 2015 when she plays as part of Music At The House. Her performance will follow a newly-announced sideshow in Melbourne. Lykke Li will be making her Opera House debut backed by material from her third album I Never Learn, which was released in May.

Flying Lotus

Fellow Laneway act Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, will play directly after Caribou on 3rd February. Energised by the utter craziness of his new album You’re Dead!, FlyLo will return to the Concert Hall a year after playing his Layer 3 3D show to a sold-out Sydney Opera House. He’ll have new visuals and new music ready to go, so this is a definite must-see. A Melbourne Laneway sideshow is also lined up.
