Merivale’s Sunday Sundown is coming
Hey Sydneysiders! Merivale and Corona Extra are about to make your Sunday evenings a whole lot more awesome with the introduction of their upcoming Sunday Sundown, a new live music experience at dusk, this summer.
Taking place over twelve dates from 3 January to 20 March, Sunday Sundown will showcase thirty-nine breakthrough Australian artists at three waterside venues – Coogee Pavilion, ivy Pool Club and The Newport.
From the Eastern Suburbs to the Northern Beaches, Sunday Sundown will provide a stage for Australian artists to not only cut their teeth and perform hotly-tipped tracks, but mix up their signature sounds with stripped backed sets and acoustic sessions.
Coogee Rooftop, the spectacular oasis overlooking the breathtaking Coogee shoreline, opens the series with our mates, The Preatures playing an acoustic set on 3 January. Get there early enough to see support act Jess Kent too. Big things will come of her. Sunday Sundown continues at Coogee with electro-indie trio SAFIA (DJ set) on 17 January, the guitar pop of Dustin Tebbutt on 31 February, effervescent house of Nicky Night Time on 7 February and ambient beats of Yahtzel (DJ set) on 7 March.
ivy Pool Club will play host to a formidable line-up of local dance talent for Sunday Sundown. With her fast flow, bossy beats and hella-high shoes, Adelaide emcee Tkay Maidza kicks things off at the pool on 10 January. Sydney’s own KLP (DJ set) will bring her signature blend of party bass vibes on 24 January, followed by special international guests Holyghost on 14 February and tropical-trap don L D R U on 6 March. Entry to Sunday Sundown at ivy Pool Club is $20.
Sunday Sundown reaches The Newport, Merivale’s soon-to-be-launched venue on the idyllic Northern Beaches, in February. With its expansive alfresco deck and sweeping views of Pittwater, The Newport will be the perfect spot to enjoy acoustic sets by local talent at sunset. The eclectic, psychedelic sounds of indie duo Gypsy & The Cat grace the peninsula on 21 February, while Melbourne’s nine-piece soul outfit Saskwatch take over on 29 February. Tasmanian singer songwriter Asta headlines on 6 March, before four-time ARIA award winner Ben Lee on 14 March. Sydney synth-pop trio Mansionair close out the series on 20 March. Entry to Sunday Sundown sessions at The Newport is free.
