About Sweet Summer Suite Extended
Having warmed up the new surroundings with a cross-section of the city’s most explorative and magnetic DJs, the stage is now set for live performances from a cutting-edge music scene that, in recent years, has become an undeniable world leader. Curated by the trusted brains of Crown Ruler, the unique open-air space will be brought to life by a diverse lineup of brash, forward-thinking artists redefining Australian music.
Witness an all-star cast of talent. From the avant-garde soundscapes of rising star Aarti Jadu, to vintage cinematic soul of Surprise Chef, jazz improv heavyweight Barney McAll, to neo-soul fusion from names like Setwun and Allysha Joy, come celebrate this top shelf program celebrating the city’s rich artistic pedigree and vibrant community spirit.
Situated in the heart of the Southbank Arts Precinct, Melbourne Recital Centre’s Forecourt is set to become an unrivalled space to relax with friends over drinks or a bite to eat while enjoying cutting-edge music beneath the stars. With a backdrop of native trees, visitors can soak up the last of the nourishing sun and linger long into the night with signature cocktails and an Asian-fusion menu from Blondie Bar, while taking in world class live music. Come together for a steady stream of probing grooves and provocative sounds, and find freedom in the perfect frequency to see out your afternoons.
