Love List is our Spotify series where we ask Opera House guests, friends and staff to curate a playlist dedicated to an artist, genre or subject of their choice.
Ben Marshall is the creative mind behind contemporary music at the Sydney Opera House and Vivid LIVE curator for the sixth time over seven years. Ben has brought prolific acts to the Opera House, including Solange, The National and Dirty Three. For Vivid LIVE 2021, Ben drew on Australia’s immensely talented, multifaceted musical communities to put together a contemporary music festival that celebrated local music in the incredible Harbour City. While Vivid LIVE 2021 will unfortunately no longer proceed, we look forward to welcoming you back to the Opera House for Vivid LIVE 2022. In the meantime, chuck on your headphones and enjoy Love List: Vivid LIVE 2021; an ode to the emerging Australian voices and world-class icons of the festival that wasn’t.
