Get ready to express yourself at BAD Festival with DJ Atro

For too long, society has shamed anything deemed outside of the “acceptable norm.” Such little room for freedom of expression in what should be a diverse culture, it’s so beautiful to finally see that this mindset has started to change; much of the time through creative outlets.

Enter BAD Festival – a remedy in the form of a Sydney music and arts festival, ameliorating the lack of spotlight on non-conformists and boundless diversity, whilst sending off a big F you to the patriarchy and monotony.

Curated by lateral thinkers, Gina Karlikoff and Greta Balog for the music lineup, with Danielle Karlikoff taking care of the visual art installations (in collaboration with Anna May Kirk), the multi-sensory BAD Festival came to fruition simply from three girls with a strong vision for their passion of art, and the freedom that should come with it, and its owners.

Taking place at the Factory Floor, Fusebox and courtyard of Sydney’s Factory Theatre this Saturday, 15th October, expect to be blown away by sets from the likes of ChunyinDispossessedBig WhiteGussyCorin and HTML Flowers, alongside visual works by Alice JoelAsh BellHayley Coghlan and Michael Filocamo.

An exciting day out to celebrate and promote our local scenes colourful members, we’ve been gifted an exclusive mix in advance from performer, DJ Atro, that epitomises BAD Festival.
