Sugar Mountain comes to Southbank Image

Following a one-year hiatus from Melbourne’s music calendar, the Sugar Mountain Festival will return in 2015 to its brand new home in Southbank.

After three successive years at The Forum on Flinders St, the renowned music and arts festival will return on Saturday January 24 at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) in Southbank.

As one of Melbourne’s most renowned creative hubs, it will mark the first event of its type to ever be held on VCA grounds, providing the festival with the extra space required to present its biggest line-up to date.

American rapper Nas will headline the event, performing his classic 1994 album Illmatic – one of the most illustrious rap albums.

The festival will also feature a huge line-up of influential, experimental and iconic local and international artists.

Sugar Mountain promoter Simon Huggins said the festival was glad to be making its return in Southbank.

“Sugar Mountain Festival is very excited to be coming to the Southbank Arts Precinct on the Australia Day weekend,” he said.

“The festival combines a strong contemporary visual arts program with a world-class musical lineup to give festival-goers a very unique experience.”

“We’re extremely pleased to be partnering with some of Melbourne’s best bars and restaurants, and the SummerSalt festival in Southbank to combine food, art and music in way only Melburnians know how to enjoy.”

According to organisers, the festival will now comprise of three outdoor stages and two indoor stages, with the main stage sitting at the end of a closed Dodds St.

VCA’s Space 28 and Studio 45 will be home to the festival’s indoor offerings, while Sturt St and the ACCA forecourt will also be utilised for the event.
