Bang On A Can All-Stars @ Extended Play

Come for the music, but not just to listen. See, feel, explore and play.

City Recital Hall is proud to announce the return to Sydney of legendary 6-piece New York band Bang On A Can All-Stars, bringing their brash and fresh tunes from the American cutting edge to headline Extended Play – a 12-hour festival that explores and celebrates new music in every format imaginable, reverberating across three floors and multiple rooms of this central Sydney venue on Saturday 25 August.

Bang on a Can All-Stars, who play “a central role in fostering a new kind of audience that doesn’t concern itself with boundaries” (The New York Times), are recognised worldwide for their ultra-dynamic live performances, freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music to forge a distinct category-defying identity.

From noon to midnight, a dynamic line-up of 20 local and international acts will transform City Recital Hall into a rich hub of sonic exploration and musical landscapes. Be prepared to discard your preconceived ideas about music production and performance, and embrace the new, in all its raw, exhilarating, and immersive brilliance.

Co-producer of Extended Play, Lyle Chan, says” “Extended Play is a new music buffet. A smorgasbord. At any time, there will be 3-5 performances to choose from, all within one building. And like any buffet, you will likely overindulge – you have been warned!”

In every nook and cranny of the venue you will find musicians of the highest caliber, challenging and exploring the farthest realms of sound creation and instrumental possibility. Explore improvised celestial soundscapes, daredevil piano antics, twinkling electronica, uplifting melodic improvisations and so much more. See below for a full listing of all artists.

What: Extended Play

When: Saturday 25 August from Noon to Midnight.
