Vivid Sydney and Carriageworks have a strong history of one-night-only performances featuring female stars working at the fringes of pop experimentation: St. Vincent in 2018, Goldfrapp in 2017 and an experiential DJ set from Björk in 2016. That streak continues this year with an exclusive performance by UK pop-dance chameleon FKA Twigs on Sunday June 9.

FKA Twigs’ first performance in Australia since 2014, we’re giving one reader and a friend the chance to win tickets and see what all the fuss is about.

FKA Twigs – aka Tahliah Barnett – last came to Australia in 2014 for Laneway Festival. Since then she’s released the 2015 EP M3LL155X and broadened her creative boundaries through staging elaborate live productions; appearing on a high-profile ASAP Rocky track, 2018’s Fukk Sleep; and starring in a now-iconic Apple ad directed by Spike Jonze, in which she dances to Anderson Paak. In 2016 she released the single-only track Good to Love and in April the spare new track Cellophane from her forthcoming as-yet-untitled follow up to her 2014 debut LP1.

All you need to do to win is tell us in 25 words or less why you can’t wait to see FKA Twigs at Carriageworks. Winners will receive a general admission double pass (2 x tickets) to the performance on 9 June 2019, (valued at $220).

As well as FKA Twigs, 2019 Vivid Sydney will feature a typically action-packed suite of light, theatre, art, music and performance action. Chief among them is Carriageworks’ Curve Ball. Happening the night before FKA Twigs on Saturday June 8, it features some of the country’s best party-starters including Hayden James, Mallrat, Touch Sensitive, Set Mo, Young Franco, Cassian (Live) and more.
