In its 13th year, The NOW now Festival is back to present a festival of music, sound and art without borders from 8 - 12 January 2014. The festival will bring together over 60 artists local, interstate and international artists over 5 days and nights of performances, installations, exhibitions, discussions, site-specific works, workshops and community events around inner west Sydney.
the NOW now is an Artist Run Initiative (ARI) that has been working since 2001 to present a diverse and unique mix of exploratory, experimental, improvised, noise, sound-art, outsider, free, unpopular and generally ‘othered’ musics throughout a range of venues and spaces in Sydney and greater NSW. Every January the ARI runs the NOW now festival and a bi-monthly concert series throughout the year.
