Has anyone seen this lineup???
Heading the bill is none other than Antony and The Johnsons. Led by the singular Antony Hegarty, the group will be accompanied onstage by the 36-piece West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
If that prospect isn’t incredible enough, the Becks Music Box returns to the Esplanade for a series of outdoor concerts. Among the artists on board are New Jersey icons Yo La Tengo, noise-makers HEALTH, original renegadeMarianne Faithfull, mercurial instrumentalists Dirty Three performing Ocean Songs in full and so many more.
