The Vivid Festival is coming to Sydney later this year and will play a week’s worth of gigs at the Sydney Opera House. The festival will feature number of Australian and international performers playing one-off showsas well as a number of internationally renowned light displays.

The headliners include Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Florence & The Machine, The Temper Trap, Bryce Dessner + Nico Muhly + Sufjan Stevens and Janelle Monae.

The festival takes place between May 25th and June 3rd with tickets being sold for separate events. For example, Florence & The Machine play on the opening night with tickets costing $99 and The Temper Trap play May 31st at $59 a ticket.

Recent acoustic singer-songwriter Matt Corby has announced his winter tour that will begin June 1st in Brisbane, making five stops in all major cities minus Canberra. Bad luck.

Corby has garnered huge amounts of attention in recent years and his hit 2011 hit Brother from the Into The Flame EP was a huge success.

Finally, rumours have surfaced that pop singer Jessie J became involved in a secret relationship with rapper Tinie Tempah while the two were part of the recent Future Music Festival that toured the nation. Purely speculation, but one wouldn’t be amiss in suggesting that our beautiful land was the main reason for the blossoming love.
