Close VIVID 2018 in style: Announcing the full lineup for our Issue 8 Launch

In case you missed it, Issue 8 is well on its way. On June 16th, on the last night of VIVID 2018, we’re inviting some of our best mates to The Lady Hampshire for a night we’re already giddy about.

When the VIVID program dropped, we announced Shining Bird and ZEAHORSE as our first two acts on the bill. Now, we’re stoked to share the rest.

Close VIVID 2018 in style at the Happy Mag Issue 8 Launch. We’re calling in a huge cohort of our favourite Sydney talent, and we can’t wait to see you there.

Sydney’s brightest rock ‘n’ rollers Sunscreen are first up. Fresh off their radiant EP Just A Drop, they’ve been making waves around the local circuit since day dot. We couldn’t be more excited to have them along.

SOOK are an unapologetic, unrestrained femme punk powerhouse who blew Australia off its feet with their debut single I’m Not Your Woman. We’ve been keeping an eye on them ever since.

Good Pash and Aela Kae are both mag launch alumni, having played at the Issue 5 and Issue 6 launches respectively. They were some of our absolute favourite acts to have along, which is why they’re coming right back.

Owen from Straight Arrows will be returning to the decks after his appearance at the Issue 7 launch, with Happy DJs spinning vinyl for the rest of the night.

Suss out the full lineup below, and be sure to RSVP on the Facebook event.
