    Mark Gerber, founder and CEO of Oxford Art Factory says: “It’s no secret that the pandemic hit the Sydney and Australian music industry really hard. We’ve seen first-hand so many businesses disappear and shut down, so it’s great to see things beginning to rebound.”

    “After what has felt like a lifetime, we’re stoked to be opening our doors again and not only be a part of this event, which spans across and supports so many venues and artists, but to host headliners London Grammar for what will be a very special evening of music.”
