Christmas music isn't just carols
On Friday December 15 Red Bull Sound Select returns to Sydney for its annual Christmas themed event at Bondi's iconic Beach Road Hotel.
Basenji will headline what promises to be one of the biggest shows of the year. With his single Mistakes (featuring vocalist Tkay Maidza) being currently one of the most played songs on tripleJ, he is sure to impress.
The opening act of the night will be Ghanaian – Australian rapper Genesis Owusu. He'll be followed by Haiku Hands - an all girl dance group hailing from Sydney. Fast becoming known for their energetic and artistic performances they will be part of the 2017/2018 summer festival circuit and are a great inclusion in this event.
Also performing is Mallrat. At just 18 years of age, the Brisbane based singer has a unique blend of melancholy nostalgic pop. Audiences won't find it hard to see why she is fast becoming a favourite in the indie scene.
Red Bull Sound Select is a program designed to support up and coming local artists by pairing them with more established performers via a program of monthly live shows. The line up for each show is handpicked by leading music influencers. The curator of this event is FBi Radio's Amelia Jenner.
For a $3 entry fee, register your RSVP here or pay $10 at the door. Please note however that capacity is limited.
