The relatively new blog Skydreams will launch an eponymous single-day music festival in Sydney next month. Slated for Sept. 8 at Sydney Uni’s Hermann’s Bar, the inaugural Skydreams Festival will unite many of the blog’s favourite Sydney bands. Those include Regular John (pictured), Darren Cross (Gerling, E.L.F.), The Holy Soul, Dead China Doll, Whipped Cream Chargers, East River and Through the Forest Door (The Laurels’ Luke O’Farrell), among others.
Skydreams launched in April as a creative alternative to social media where “people contribute bits and pieces of writing, videos, music, drawings and photos. We’re obviously not set up to make money or anything; it’s more about people publishing whatever they want.”
Beyond music, the festival promises record stands, tarot, an adult-grade jumping castle, “mystery food” and something called “Sophie’s Sartorial Sexplosion: Vintage Clothing for Sexy Idiots.” Ben Tarwin and Nick Hollins’ Sydney-centric The Ben and Nick Radio Show will appear live to open the festival, with Reckless Vagina’s Daniel Corboy as a roving reporter.
Tickets are on sale now via Oztix for $15 + booking fee or $20 at the door. The festival starts at 3pm and is 18+ only. Full line-up below, plus the official festival mixtape.
