The Hills Are Alive: Sydney Solstice

hills are alive news story


We’re thrilled to announce The Hills Are Alive, our live music concert series that is taking over AIM Sydney’s beautiful Treehouse stage this June. The Hills Are Alive kicks off next Thursday June 10 as part of Sydney Solstice, a winter celebration of Sydney’s vibrant arts, culture, food and entertainment.

These all-ages twilight events celebrate the diversity and creativity of Sydney’s inner-city music scene – showcasing singer/songwriters Lo Carmen, Dominic Breen, Peter Black and T. Wilds, the low slung soul-jazz grooves of Setwun & The Soulstranauts, soulful powerhouse Jade MacRae, popular children’s group Lah-Lah, and to conclude the series, the beautifully crafted and uplifting sounds of The Catholics, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary.

AIM Chair, Ed St John, said today, “AIM has been a training ground or musicians – and a home of musical innovation – for many years. It’s so exciting to be opening up our creative space to the local community for this special series of twilight concerts. This will be a celebration of great music in beautiful surroundings.”
