Sydney’s annual Vivid Live Festival has finally given us the massive full music lineup for 2019, and it includes The Cure, FKA Twigs, RUFUS DU SOL, Paul Kelly, The Middle East, Dirty Three and way more.
The Cure was announced as the event’s music headliners back in February, and they’ll be playing their iconic album Disintegration in full for the album’s 30th anniversary.
RÜFÜS DU SOL were the second act announced on the huge bill, and they’ll be playing Carriageworks across two nights in June.
FKA Twigs is another Vivid headliner, and this will mark her first time in Australia since 2015 when she toured the country with Laneway festival. This also is likely an indicator that new music is coming, as her last album, LP1, dropped back in 2014.
The bill also features two massive reunions. Aussie legends Dirty Three are getting back together for one special performance in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album. On top of that, The Middle East are getting the band back together – a sentence this writer can’t believe he is writing – as part of Spunk Records’ 20th anniversary celebration.
Curve Ball have also given us their 2019 lineup, including Mallrat, Touch Sensitive, Hayden James and more.
Other acts of note on the bill include Maggie Rogers, Herbie Hancock, The Middle East, Paul Kelly, Sharon Von Etten, Kelsey Lu, Underworld, Teyana Taylor and stacks more.
Vivid Live Sydney will take place from 24th May to 15th June. Check out the full music lineup and all details here.
