Electro-Sunday in Wicks Park
Marrickville Council’s annual Sunday Arvo Sessions are electro-themed this year and will be held at Wicks Park on Sunday 25 November from 2pm to 6pm.
The event will celebrate and support emerging and established local electronic talent including artists The Bumblebeez, CatCall, S.Y.L.K., Kato, Anna Lunoe and Ro Sham Bo.
The event – along with other major music festivals throughout the year – is part of a wider initiative supported by the Council to combat the declining number of live music venues in the Marrickville area.
“The rise of poker machines in pubs and clubs saw a decline of live music performed in venues,” Mayor of Marrickville Dimitrios Thanos said. “Live music is an integral part of the inner-western lifestyle, and Council was concerned that young artists would have fewer opportunities to perform and establish themselves as professional musicians.”
This year’s concert will feature mostly electro artists and performers. Headline performer, The Bumblebeez, will perform their show, Radio Fabulous Soundsystem, which they describe as “like everything and nothing you’ve heard before”.
The event is not to be restricted to the one genre of music, however. Follow-up act, Ro Sham Bo, are a collection of exciting DJs who will keep the venue pumping with energy-infused party music ranging from crunk and hip hop to funk and punk.
Sunday Arvo Sessions is sure to be an energy-packed, youthful day of celebration with amazing beats, performances and local entertainment.
