BEAMS ARTS FESTIVAL 2013
The BEAMS Arts Festival is returning for one bright night in Chippendale!
BEAMS Arts Festival 2013
Saturday 21 September, 5pm-10pm
Balfour Street and surrounding laneways
FREE – all welcome!
Saturday September 21, 2013 will see the laneways of Chippendale emerge into a colourful kaleidoscopic oasis unlike any festival our burgeoning city has ever seen!
Hosted by Chippendale Creative Precinct, and Festival Director and President of Chippendale Creative Precinct, Nicky Ginsberg; this year’s BEAMS Arts Festival will provide a platform for emerging artists and musicians to enthrall, enchant, challenge, and engage you to think beyond spaces ordinary and extraordinary.
With this year’s themes of ‘Revitalisation’ and ‘New World Cities’, we ask the question ‘Is the future a place of wonder?’
To help express these ideas of ‘Revitalisation’ and ‘New World Cities’, we are excited to present audiences with a stellar array of talented musicians and DJ’s who are the epitome of revitalisation, traversing with one foot firmly planted in the present, and the other ready to take flight embracing the strange magnetic future that we each have a hand in shaping.
BEAMS Musical Director and Chippendale resident, John Cawley of Funkdafied has been invited to curate the BEAMS Arts Festival musical acts. Funkdafied is an Event Promotions Company based in Sydney Australia, promoting regular quality events encompassing many genres from Afrobeat, Latin, Disco, Reggae and Hip Hop. At the heart of their passion is their strong focus on Jazz, Rare Groove, Soul & Funk.
We are proud to announce the line-up of musical artists for the festival! There is set to be an uplifting Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, and Jazz Fusion sound, with a splash of free spirited Indie Rock to cushion your evening. Musicians on the bill are: Gang of Brothers, Alphamama, Milan, The Psyde Projects, Billie McCarthy, Dane Laboryie Duo, Kristie Nicholas, The Rhythm Hunters, and Krista Pav.
Chippendale Creative Precinct and BEAMS Arts Festival 2013 invite you to reclaim the streets, and inhale the wondrous magic of Chippendale thick in artistic expression.
