Vivid LIVE lineup leaks

Last week Vivid LIVE curator, and Modular Recordings boss, Steve Pavlovic offered up some hints about who would be visiting us for the arts festival at Sydney’s iconic Opera House in May.

We’d had our suspicions about the lineup and now thanks to a leak from the event listings on the Opera House website we can confirm that Spiritualized, Odd Future, Bat For Lashes, video clip mastermind Chris Cunningham and even children’s TV renegades Yo Gabba Gabba will be appearing at the festival.

The lineup was due for release tomorrow morning.

wonder if odd future just play this vivid show, then return for splendour sideshows, or vice versa (supposing they do play splendour).

Spicy McHaggis

Will Yo Gabba Gabba bring Weezer and The Aquabats?!

because aren't they playing in japan around the time of splendour? and aren't vivid artists often just for vivid? was just raising the possibility..

untoldanimals said on the 28th Mar, 2011

you forgot to...
a) include gilbert & sullivan
b) credit your real sources, buttplugs!

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 28th Mar, 2011

Real sources?

You mean people guestimating Sydney Opera House web addresses.

humanracin

humanracin said on the 28th Mar, 2011

Yeah, hoping for a Bat For Lashes Brisbane show also.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 28th Mar, 2011

you forgot to...
a) include gilbert & sullivan
b) credit your real sources, buttplugs!

a) It's not a part of Vivid, it's twelve days after everything else.
b) Are you saying that the real sources are buttplugs?

So psyched for Bat for Lashes.

untoldanimals

untoldanimals said on the 28th Mar, 2011

@braveheart81: yes!

@morningafterboy: a) pffft, it was going to be a surprise announcement. pav messaged me earlier and said so. b) yes.

MorningAfterboy

These acts are usually exclusive to the festival aren't they? So keen to see Spiritualized again.

iNegro

iNegro said on the 28th Mar, 2011

Chris Cunningham, Yo Gabba Gabba and the Avalanches should play a show together.

Jose Cuervo

Jose Cuervo said on the 28th Mar, 2011

Chris Cunningham should play with Aphex Twin instead

jakesamways

jakesamways said on the 28th Mar, 2011

guaranteed odd future will not be playing splendour now since it's almost two months after vivid.

untoldanimals

untoldanimals said on the 28th Mar, 2011

how do you guys forgive odd future for being so misogynistic?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 28th Mar, 2011

Do you troll this hard normally, or are you making a special exception?

untoldanimals

special exception. for you.

Odd Future show is on my birthday.

Very tempted to fly over for that and Bat For Lashes.

BAT for lashes - DANiel

The Daniel in the song is about Daniel San from the Karate Kid. The ultimate karate move? The CRANE. What do I do? Drive cranes.

heavy shit.

Odd Future show is on my birthday.

Very tempted to fly over for that and Bat For Lashes.

Opt for the yes option in this particular scenario.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 28th Mar, 2011

On reflection the Thursday Odd Future show would be better.
That way I can eat cake in Perth and fail my course less.

not happy with the dates. falls right in the middle of my exam week!

Quicky

Quicky said on the 28th Mar, 2011

So keen for Tame Impala, would go to Avalanches and Cut Copy if I had the money. Bat For Lashes sounds very enticing as well

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 28th Mar, 2011

tbh you'll see tame impala during any one of their 1000 tours so unless they are bringing up something particularly special this time around the international > national festival rule applies.

daveyac8881

daveyac8881 said on the 28th Mar, 2011

^^ agree, although 3/4 bands he said were national anyway... won't likely get another chance to see them play the opera house...although out of those 4 I think Bat For Lashes would get the most benefit from the concert hall

iNegro

iNegro said on the 28th Mar, 2011

Anyone know what time the line-up is expected?

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 28th Mar, 2011



Yeah... you can totally go and see The Avalanches at the local pub any weekend you choose.

If anyone can recommend a good place / area to stay that would be very helpful.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 4th Apr, 2011

If people are looking for cheap accommodation, the fairly new YHA on Carrington St in The Rocks looks pretty good.

http://www.yha.com.au/hostels/nsw/sydney-surrounds/sydney-harbour/

It's just near The Australian Hotel so you've got one of the better pubs in Sydney almost next door.

Man, this morning was a shitfight. Damn you, slow connection!

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 4th Apr, 2011

I missed out on a ticket to Odd Future. A bit annoyed but realisitcally, I was only going to see what all the hype was about.

I'll be quite happy just to go and see Spiritualized.

Ive heard some stories that last night's Avalaches gig was full of fails.....lol

Spicy McHaggis

Spicy McHaggis said on the 4th Jun, 2011

Yep I heard that too. By the sounds of it there wasn't any positives to take away

lanesra23

lanesra23 said on the 4th Jun, 2011



Agreed. Glad I made the trip.

grattan

grattan said on the 4th Jun, 2011



Hypnotic were great - but the rest was a major disappointment. At times it sounded like an old Avalanches DJ set - but they weren't interested in the crowd at all. People were walking around asking 'when are the Avalanches coming on?' after they'd been playing for about an hour.

lanesra23

lanesra23 said on the 4th Jun, 2011

I didn't realise I hadn't organised anything for tonight in Sydney. All the Vivid things seem to be sold out. Anything decent to do around here?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 4th Jun, 2011

WU LYF are playing FBi Social tonight with Pluto Jonze if you're interested.

lanesra23

lanesra23 said on the 4th Jun, 2011

Definitely a possibility. Cheers for the tip! I'll see how these James Squires treat me.
