Vivid LIVE reveals 2014 musicprogram

The music program for Vivid LIVE 2014 will include performances from The Pet Shop Boys, Pixies and Daft Punk collaborator Giorgio Moroder.

Now entering its fifth year Sydney’s “annual event of light, music and ideas” is set to take place from Friday May 23 – June 9. The music portion of the festival will see the Pixies return to Australia for the first time since 2010 to perform four intimate shows at the Sydney Opera House. UK electro pop legends Pet Shop Boys will also return to headline the “Modulations” series – a collaboration between Carriageworks and Modular which will feature three days of exclusive music performances, art, installations and contemporary ideas. Fred Deakin (one half of Lemon Jelly) will perform as part of Modulations, with more bands and DJs set to be announced soon.

Other music highlights include Grammy Award-winning dance-floor legend and Daft Punk collaborator Giorgio Moroder performing a DJ set and participating in an intimate Q&A session on June 1; and The Presets performing their previously announced Australian Chamber Orchestra collaboration “Timeline” at the Sydney Opera House on May 29. For the full Vivid Live program head to the festival’s website here.

Last year Vivid LIVE saw performances from Kraftwerk, Cloud Control, Empire of the Sun and Bobby Womack.

hearing giorgio's classics played by an orchestra would take my breath away...

Off to a good start. All of them are Sydney exclusives too.

I sort of want to see Pixies, but it'd be weird without Kim Deal.


humanracin said on the 11th Mar, 2014

so Modulations sounds like it will be kind of like a mini festival within a festival?
Pet Shop Boys and Fred Deakin already confirm my ticket purchase for that one anyway.

Okay fine I will now give up on ever seeing The Knife in Australia.


humanracin said on the 11th Mar, 2014

I hear ya…

but the rest of the lineup isn't announced until later this month! (grasping at straws)

This is correct but No Kim, No Deal would have earned you extra marks.


MorningAfterboy said on the 11th Mar, 2014

I miss Kim as much as the next guy, but Paz has been doing an absolutely fantastic job with the band. She's already fitting in a lot better than Kim S did.

The biggest downside is that they don't do Gigantic anymore.
