From Nagoya to north Wales, Iowa to east Perth, the 2022 programme highlights the next generation of global tastemakers shaping the sonic landscape across the world.

This June, Carriageworks will explode with sound in a programme curated by Tom Supple. US indie act Perfume Genius takes to the precinct. He’s joined on the line-up by Japan pop act Chai, Estonian rapper TOMM¥ €A$H, Welsh singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cate Le Bon, Melbourne/US doom metal two-piece Divide & Dissolve, Perth dark-pop powerhouse Alter Boy, and The Mystics – a Carriageworks exclusive from Jono Ma, Jonti and Babeküh.

“While the past two years have challenged the industry – both in Australia and overseas – live contemporary music remains a key feature and major drawcard for the Sydney cultural experience,” Carriageworks CEO Blair French says.

"Carriageworks’ Vivid Sydney programme curated by Tom Supple aims to welcome back audiences to share in the spirit of a reconnected world – highlighting diverse artists from home and abroad.”

Throughout the rest of the Carriageworks programme is resident company Performance Space, presenting ‘Live Dreams’: three evenings of performance and experimental art.

Also, Soft Centre brings their singular blend of experimental sound, live A/V performance and large-scale light installation to Carriageworks for a one-day festival of boundary-pushing art and music.

“Vivid Sydney is a fantastic event that attracts global attention and thrives on the local community of creatives that brings the programme together, such as this ongoing partnership with Carriageworks.

"It’s wonderful to see this popular venue present a dynamic music program as part of Vivid Sydney in 2022 which will appeal to a diverse audience.”

Carriageworks is set to transform into a festival every night for two weekends. Live bands, large-scale lighting installations, performance art, rotating DJs, and the resident Atomic Pop-Up Bar, serving up local beer, festive cocktails and hot food.

Tickets go on sale 17 March at 2pm EST. More information.
