[Sponsored] Treat your ears to a full 12 hours of continuous sonic exploration at City Recital Hall

A marathon music festival is taking over City Recital Hall next month. Extended Play will bring a big line-up of new music to City Recital Hall for 12 hours of continuous music featuring artists from every genre imaginable – and then some.

From noon on Saturday August 25 until midnight, City Recital Hall will be buzzing with 20 local and international artists, transforming the venue into an immersive experience in sonic exploration.

Headlining the explorative festival are the Bang on a Can All-Stars, who are flying in from New York to share their dynamic brand of classical-jazz-experimental-world-rock with Sydneysiders. We’re also keen to hear the closing act, a 90-minute DJ set from the Stereogamous duo (that’s Paul Mac and Jonny Seymour).

Can’t get enough of the soul-restoring sounds of Philip Glass? Extended Play will feature songs from the composer, known for his countless compositions and film scores (he even won a Golden Globe for The Truman Show). There will also be works by established Australian writers like Elena Kats-Chernin and Peter Sculthorpe, plus the chance to hear songs from our top new talents.

Everything from classical and jazz to rock and world music will feature at Extended Play, with the uniting factor being that everything you hear is cutting edge, innovative and nothing like what you hear on the average radio channel. There’s nothing fuddy or duddy about the festival so prepare to leave your preconceived notions of music etiquette at the door and enjoy everything from improvised celestial soundscapes to wild piano antics.

See the full line-up of Extended Play artists by visiting City Recital Hall website. Tickets are available now and range from $35 to $72.
