Sydney is the proud recipient of a brand new music festival. Dubbed ‘Volumes’, the inaugural event will offer up a diverse showcase of over 35 Australian artists, set across three premier live music venues in the cultural heart of the city.
Featuring buzzed-about homegrown acts such as Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders, Sydney’s Step-Panther and psych rockers The Laurels, Volumes 2015 will take place on Saturday 29th August, and allow punters to move freely between Oxford Art Factory, The Cliff Dive and Brighton Up Bar across the day.
What’s more, the event also promises that each stage will “take on its own identity, with carefully curated lineups and immersive space design mapping out a journey which integrates artists of different genres into the one environment”.
A statement from the organisers reads: “From tropical psychedelic discos to gritty post-punk dungeons and all-encompassing walls of sound, VOLUMES will be an experience which will push the boundaries of dynamics and energy in a truly unique live music event”.
The event is a collaborative effort between a group of local labels, bands and venues, co-curated and presented by Sydney and Melbourne’s I OH YOU, the Leisure Coast’s Farmer & the Owl and Gold Coast’s Strange Yonder.
Other bands on the debut event bill include Perth hot shots Canyons, Lower Spectrum, Noise In My Head, World Champion, Catlips, The Walking Who, Zeahorse, Day Ravies, Shining Bird, I OH YOU DJs, Strange Yonder DJs, Noisey DJs and many more.
