Unfortunately due to severe weather conditions, NAIDOC Up Late has been cancelled.
Join us around the fire pits and beautifully lit trees of Barangaroo Reserve’s Walumil Lawn for a free evening of music and vibes at NAIDOC Up Late.
ARIA nominated singer-songwriter and eclectic musical icon Mo’ju will headline the night with an exciting set of restorative jams. With three releases under their belt – Native Tongue (2018), Ghost Town (2019), and O.K. (2021) – this cult indie artist is as prolific in the recording studio as on the touring circuit. In 18 months, Mo’ju batched 200 shows on three continents, including national tour supports for both The Hilltop Hoods and Paul Kelly, festival dates at WOMAD and SXSW, and two headline tours that included dates at Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Arts Centre.
Mo'ju will be joined by Ziggy Ramo who's cool hip hop music promotes positive change through the global language of rap. Ramo's debut album 'Black Thoughts' was created as a document of his thoughts on race relations in Australia; beautifully articulated through his powerful lyrics.
Emerging electro-pop duo AYA J will bring along their sweet, summery, shimmering pop sounds which Triple J called “seductive and warm”, which will be perfectly complemented by the modern 90’s nostalgic pop tunes of Tessa Thames.
Rounding out the line-up with be the emotive R&B electro pop artist Cloe Terare to bring you a soulful evening of music and celebration on Barangaroo Reserve’s beautiful Walumil Lawn on the stunning Sydney Harbour foreshore.
You're welcome to bring your own picnic and there will also be a selection of Sydney’s finest food trucks onsite including:
