Gabriella Cohen (Friday 25th)

Friday is the opening day for the Vivid Sydney Festival which kick starts with the magical Vera Blue, Iron & Wine and Ice Cube among many others. Yes, guys, that-s right Ice Cube is in the house! The Golden Age Cinema club will become the Folk kingdom for one weekend and who better to start off than Gabriella Cohen, the Melbourne based artist whose traditional cords, Pop amends and sugary backing vocals will be one of the highlights of Friday night.

British India (Saturday 26th)

The Melbournian band after ten years of success, they released their newest album in September 2017, Forgetting the Future. The album has a complete respect for the strong ties with Indie and garage rock that the band is known for but without falling into the death trap of prediction, since British India have tightened their musicality and lyricism even a notch higher. Saturday afternoon is set to be a complete banger in the Narrabeen RSL. Hurry up the tickets are running out fast, get them here!

Leah Senior (Saturday 26th)

The folk Kingdom in the Golden Age Cinema will also open its doors to Leah Senior, Melbourne singer-songwriter whose last album, Pretty Faces was directly recorded and produced by no other than King Gizzard. From the darkness of the woods, Leah’s voice will be able to guide you through the paths of light all in a compelling music which has strong musical bonds with The Head and the Heart or even Juno’s Soundtrack for that matter. A definite must-see performance. For more information click here!

Middle Kids (Sunday 27th)

Middle Kids, a Sydney-based three pieces made up of Hannah Joy, guitarist Tim Fitz, and drummer Harry Day will be performing in the Sydney Opera House. This alternative rock band has gone big after opening concerts for bands such as Cold War on Kids or Ryan Adams among others. Their album Lost Friends (2018) looks deeply into the beauty of ideals and their capability of creating strong human relationships even in this era of continuous clash and conflict.
