DJ and designerSoju Gang (Gunai/Kurnai, Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri) and Footscray Community Arts are excited to announce the delicious line-up for Live at the Bowl’s SorBaes: Double Dip!on Sunday 13 March.
The 2021 event saw some of the most exciting acts of Naarm come together in one massive mini festival. This March, they’re doing it all again, but with a bigger serving!
“SorBaes: Double Dip! is about bringing together and celebrating not only Melbourne’s, but Australia’s diverse, genre-evolving music scene. There’s so many different spaces that thrive and co-exist here that everyone may not know about – so I feel like SorBaes is an opportunity for me to pull back the curtain and share that with everyone: the beauty of opening yourself up to new sounds and vibrations, and even more, the importance of supporting our local talent here,” said Soju Gang.
Performing live at the all ages event this year are Barkaa + Baro Sura + Jerome Farah + Kira Puru + Lay + Mulalo + Young Rorty + DJs Mirasia + Smilez + Soju Gang + Swerv.
“Footscray Community Arts’ mission is all about creating greater representation for artists who have been historically excluded from mainstream arts and culture. By collaborating with Arts Centre Melbourne on SorBaes: Double Dip!, we are helping profile some of Australia’s best musicians in an accessible event for music lovers of all ages,” said Footscray Community Arts Artistic Director and Co-CEO Daniel Santangeli.
Along with music to make you melt, food trucks, curated art spaces and market stalls will be on site to add to your SorBaes experience.
“SorBaes: Double Dip! provides a space for audiences to connect with the next generation of musicians, artists, DJs and performers. This is an important opportunity for artists after a year or two of lost gigs. Soju Gang has curated a stacked line-up that is bound to remind punters here in Melbourne why we are known for hyping incredible musical talent. Come down and support local acts!” said Footscray Community Arts Music Producer Paul Gorrie.
