SorBaes returns to Live at the Bowl with six hours of DJ sets and performances from Australia’s finest.

Bringing together some of the most exciting acts of Naarm to Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2021 for SorBaes, DJ-designer Soju Gang and Footscray Community Arts are doing it all over again for 2022 with more flavour and more acts.

As part of the Live at the Bowl program, the epic open-air performance series at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl – SorBaes: Double Dip will feature six hours of DJ sets and performances from some of the finest talents in the city.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Taking place in the Bowl on Sunday, March 13, the massive all-ages mini-festival will see the likes of Barkaa, Baro Sura, Jerome Farah, Kira Puru and Lay, as well as Mulalo, Young Rorty and DJs Mirasia, Smilez, Soju Gang and Swerv take to the stage, 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.

With this carefully curated lineup of wildly talented acts set to take over the community summer party, SorBaes: Double Dip! is helping profile some of Australia’s best musicians in an accessible event for music lovers of all ages, creating greater representation for artists who have been historically excluded from mainstream arts and culture.

Along with music to make you melt, food trucks, curated art spaces and market stalls will be on-site to add to your summer SorBaes experience.

“SorBaes: Double Dip! provides a space for audiences to connect with the next generation of musicians, artists, DJs and performers,” says Footscray Community Arts Music Producer Paul Gorrie.

“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!”

Tickets are on sale now for $15 (including booking fee) with $2 from every ticket sold being donated by Arts Centre  Melbourne to The Dhadjowa Foundation. Founded by Apryl Day, daughter of the late Aunty Tanya Day, The Dhadjowa Foundation is an organisation that supports and amplifies the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families whose loved ones have died in custody.

The festival runs on Sunday, March 13 2022 from 4pm.
