Spectrum Now

Jesus and Mary Chain, Godspeed You! Black Emperor & More For Spectrum NOW Festival

The details for Sydney Morning Herald’s Spectrum NOW Festival have recently been announced, with the series set to feature a phenomenal range of live music and more across 11 days in March 2016. Between March 3 to 13, The Domain in Sydney will be home to a full series of events, featuring music, art, food, drink and plenty more.

The event has been curated by Paul Piticco and Jessica Ducrou, the names behind Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival, so you can guarantee it’s gonna be a lot of fun.

The diverse and eclectic musical selection is incredible. From post-punk legends The Jesus and Mary Chain to Canadian postrock/experimental group Godspeed You! Black Emperor, to local legends Seekae and beyond, it’s already looking to be one of the most exciting events on the 2016 musical calendar.

There’s even more than music, food and art to explore: feel like getting some ink? LDF Tattoo’s Les Rice will be on ground delivering fresh tatts, while Tony Vacher from Sterling Hairdressing Parlour & Barbershop will be shaving and cutting hair for those who perhaps want a less-permanent change to their appearance.

Tickets are on sale NOW, you can grab them and more info here.
