This is one of those times when I wish I lived in Sydney. Vivid LIVE gives me serious FOMO and one of these years I will get up there for it. In the meantime, if you are a Sydneysider or planning on making the trip, you are in for one hell of a line-up.
Drum roll please!!!!

If I was to catch any of the above artists it would no doubt be Solange, Ice Cube, and H.E.R. I’m not even coping! And for an Aussie artist, you have to and I mean HAVE TO catch No Mono. They are the best thing that has happened in the Australian music industry and this festival will be the perfect way to experience their live show.
