Video: Sydney’s lockout laws have annoyed plenty of citizens, but they’ve had an even harsher effect on live music within the city’s entertainment precinct. The artists affected have put up memorial plaques around Kings Cross and surrounding areas as a silent protest, and there’s a video showing them going up — set to a brand new track from Flume.
The track is a 90-second tease of Flume’s Heater, and it accompanies the video which includes Flume’s own protest plaque going up outside Goodgod club in the middle of the city. Artists behind the Keep Sydney Open plaque include Flume, Flight Facilities, RUFUS, Anna Lunoe, Alison Wonderland, Peking Duk, Art vs Science, The Presets, Nina Las Vegas, Jagwar Ma, The Preatures, Yolanda Be Cool, Hayden James, Bag Raiders, You Am I, Sneaky Soundsystem and Lorde.
