Vivid Live, the Sydney Arts Festival to be curated by Modular Records head honcho Steve Pavlovic, appears to have had it lineup leaked a day early. The official announcement was due at 11am today, but yesterday afternoon it seemed that the Sydney Opera House website had accidentally made the program details available via the back end.
Unsurprisingly, the festival bill features quite a few Modular artists such as Cut Copy, Tame Impala and recent additions to the stable Architecture in Helsinki. In exciting news for fans, The Avalanches look set to return after years away from the music scene, although it is unclear as to whether it is a performance or just a DJ set.
