With the recent announcement that four-day, city-wide festival Red Bull Music Academy Weekender will be coming to Sydney, bringing 40 artists and 12 shows to multiple venues, anticipation has officially kicked off for the full line up which we should be seeing in June. While we wait, we do have an announcement of sorts on hand, promising a special concert at The Domain by none other than globe trotting dance maestros Flight Facilities, who will be performing a special set with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and more special guests yet to be announced.
The group’s live show will be bolstered by the 50 piece orchestra on Saturday 10th September, with guests joining them for a night under the stars inspired by their sold-out Melbourne Festival performance last year alongside the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. This one-off show will be completely new, created especially for the festival.
With a few surprises planned, Flight Facilities will be taking punters through their catalogue which includes the endlessly adored singles “Sunshine”, “Two Bodies”, and “Crave You”, as well as what will surely be a blockbuster rendition of “Clair de Lune”, a single which was one of the absolute highlights from their Melbourne show.
The performance is the first show announced as part of the RBMA Weekender, with the full line up expected to roll out by June. Jimmy Sing (Goodgod Small Club) and Jamie Bennett (Crown Ruler) will be working with RBMA to curate this program, which seeks to highlight innovation in music and culture. The program will see Sydney join other global cultural hubs like Tokyo and Stockholm as cities that have hosted RBMA’s Weekender festival.
