The Avalanches — Since I Left You Block Party with special guests DJ Shadow, Briggs + Sampa the Great + DJ JNETT
The critically-acclaimed Melbourne band are best known for their million plus selling studio LP Since I Left You which earned them three ARIA awards in 2001, catapulted its local home Modular Records to international recognition and will be performed live in full at Vivid LIVE for the first time since 2001.
Last year they released the sample-heavy and hugely acclaimed Wildflower and picked up Sydney artist Jonti Danilewitz as the guitarist for their live set, who famously performed Since I Left You in its entirety for Vivid LIVE 2014 with Astral People.
With the Avalanches at the helm of the Opera House’s Northern Broadwalk site (last used for FCX), this will be the block party Sydney hasn’t seen before against the backdrop it knows so well, making for an electric atmosphere of experimental hip-hop and dreamy pop on the Harbour.
