A 12 hour music event featuring amazing contemporary performers and artists across three levels and in every nook and cranny of the recital hall.
The return to Sydney of legendary 6-piece New York band Bang On A Can All-Stars, bringing their brash and fresh tunes from the American cutting edge to headline Extended Play – a 12-hour festival that explores and celebrates new music in every format imaginable, reverberating across three floors and multiple rooms.
From noon to midnight, a dynamic line-up of 20 local and international acts will transform City Recital Hall into a rich hub of sonic exploration and musical landscapes. Be prepared to discard your preconceived ideas about music production and performance, and embrace the new, in all its raw, exhilarating, and immersive brilliance.
In every nook and cranny of the venue you will find musicians of the highest caliber, challenging and exploring the farthest realms of sound creation and instrumental possibility. Explore improvised celestial soundscapes, daredevil piano antics, twinkling electronica, uplifting melodic improvisations and so much more. See below for a full listing of all artists.
Come for the music, but not just to listen. See, feel, explore and play.
