Australian record label Modular Recordings, who tote a roster of brimming talent including The Presets, Wordlife, Cut Copy and Tame Impala have announced their offering for this years Vivid showcase that’ll see seminal UK act Pet Shop Boys perform a ‘multi-media’ concert.
The three day sensory bonanza will run from June 6th to the 8th and see three jam-packed days of “exclusive music performances, art, installations, contemporary ideas and innovative food” at Sydneys Carraigeworks.
Joining the award winning duo will be Fred Deakin formerly one-half of electronic duo Jelly Lemon who earned releases on mega-indie XL Recordings before a haitus in 2008. We’d assume Modulars roster and friends in the industry will probably mean a raft of local luminaries to join the festivities including Canyons, KIM, Van She and latest signing and mega groovy band Movement.
Modulations creative director Stephen Pavlovic shares;
“Modulations is a one-of-a-kind event that has been designed to celebrate creativity across multiple art forms, and Vivid Sydney is the perfect way to showcase this work. The program is curated in a coherent and holistic way, actively engaging audiences and creating a range of unique experiences. This is not a traditional arts program, nor is it a traditional music program. My vision is to create an intimate, fun, relaxed, truly creative and immersive event that appeals to a wide audience who are brought together by a shared interest in all forms of creativity and imagination.”
While we wait until we can get our grubby hands on some tickets this Thursday and the full announce March 24th, check out the Vivid lineup video that features new Midnight Juggernauts tunes (start + end), the Australian Chamber Orchestra & The Presets and details on that Giorgio Moroder showcase below.
