Annie Clark, or too many of you, St. Vincent is returning for three shows at the Speigeltent. The musician behind one of the most amazing releases this year, Bon Iver, will be here. Conceptual French chanteuse Camille will be playing some shows at City Recital Hall. And Bill Callahan, or the artist formerly known as Smog, is back!

Here are just some of the musicians listed:

  • Bill Callahan
  • Bon Iver
  • Camille
  • The Cat Empire
  • The Cinematic Orchestra
  • Fanfare Ciocarlia
  • Grace Jones
  • Holy Ghost
  • Metronomy
  • Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
  • Santogold
  • Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
  • St Vincent
  • Throwing Muses

All tickets go on sale 10 November from ticketek and the Sydney Festival website. Looks like its going to be another amazing summer in Sydney.


Also, it seems appropriate to place this here.

Dear Ms. Annie Clark,

I am so excited you are visiting Australia again. I saw you with Sufjan Stevens this year and was very surprised you were even in the country, let alone playing with Sufjan. I hoped for some sideshows then, and to my devastation found out after the last of three Sufjan shows at the State theater, you played only one – in Melbourne at the Corner Hotel. Now, I anxiously wait for your return.
