Event Details

A festival dedicated to experimental, improvised, outsider, radical and  absolutely incredible music. 

There are more than 50 artists performing at the festival, over four nights in three spaces. In a Sydney suffering from the shut-down of venues and the cultural annihilation that comes from rent-hikes, lock-outs, and all-pervasive pop-monoculture, events like the NOW now are vital.  

There is an afternoon concert at the Redfern Oval (Corner of Redfern & Chalmers Street) on Sunday January at 3-5pm with Splinter Orchestra and Prophets. For over 15 years the Splinter Orchestra have developed a unique and culturally specific music. This out-door event presents its own musical surprises, allowing audience to move throughout the park and hearing each sound, both made and environmental, with new focus. After touring the streets of Europe as one of the most dauntingly original busking groups of all-time, Prophets return to the outdoors for this Redfern Park Performance. 

UPSTAIRS GALLERY has installations by Alexandra Spence, Mimi Kind, Peter Blamey, Bronwen Williams & Karam Hussein, and Cor Fuhler. Open on 19-22 January, from 12pm-10pm.
