Kings Cross Hotel Vivid Music Series 2019.


Presented by Kings Cross Hotel &  



Kings Cross Hotel is one of Sydney's best known music and entertainment venues. Situated in the notorious yet evolving Kings Cross area, this 7 level venue continues to thrive in what some Sydney-siders have considered a dead nightlife scene.


For the third year running, Kings Cross Hotel is back as part of Vivid Sydney’s Music Accelerate program.


Last year, KXH x Vivid presented a one-night, 5 level celebration of music. Hosted by 3 of Sydney’s greatest party crews – Picnic, Bad Deep & Kato and friends – each curated an entire level with their unique sound & flavour. The night brought together a diverse line-up of incredible acts from Sydney & Melbourne, and included visual installations from local artists.


This year, we’re continuing the momentum across 3 consecutive Saturdays – May 25, June 1 & June 8 – filled with exciting acts from Sydney & beyond.
