SET TIMES

Doors Open - 7pm

The RocKwiz Live event experience takes the best of the popular SBS Saturday night music trivia show and blows it up to a two hour live show that is full of music, chat, comedy, and quiz.

Hosts Julia Zemiro and Brian Nankervis drive the live show that features the outstanding talents of the expanded RocKwiz Orkestra; James Black (Mondo Rock) Peter Luscombe (Paul Kelly), Mark Ferrie (Models), Ashley Naylor (Even) and the remarkable vocals of Vika and Linda Bull.

RocKwiz Live events also feature at least four special musical guests in performance, as well as four contestants selected from the crowd by Brian Nankervis during the first part of the show where he puts 18 potential players through three rounds of questions to select the top four.

In the last six years RocKwiz Live has staged four national theatre tours and played Zoo Twilights in Perth and Melbourne, The Breath of Life festival in Tasmania, Pyramid Rock festival at Phillip Island, Homebake in Sydney, Queenscliff Music festival, Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals, Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 15 shows at Byron Bluesfest and eight sold out nights at St Kilda's Palais Theatre.

Artists to have played at RocKwiz Live events include the cream of Australia's heritage and contemporary music industry; Marcia Hines, Dan Sultan, Ross Wilson, Emma Donovan, Russell Morris, Ella Hooper, Joe Camilleri, Adalita, Brian Cadd, Olympia, Normie Rowe, Colleen Hewitt, Marlon Williams, Megan Washington and Paul Kelly. As well we have managed to attract some international names to play live with our Orkestra; Irma Thomas, Donovan Frankenreiter, Ruthie Foster and Michael Franti.

The Big Top concert series is a licensed, all ages (16+ recommended) event. Spectrum Now Festival recommends parents/guardians should consider whether the Big Top concert is appropriate for their child and recommends that any children under 16 years of age who attend the Big Top are accompanied by their parent or guardian. Persons who are 18 years of age or older and wish to purchase alcohol MUST have valid photo ID (passport, Australian driver's license, proof of age card). Spectrum Now Festival @ The Domain welcomes and caterers for all ages, is family friendly and free to attend outside of the ticketed Big Top events.

The Sydney Morning Herald Spectrum Now Festival presented by ANZ is Sydney's newest cultural festival, returning in March 2016 for its second year. The festival is set to entertain and amaze, with free and ticketed events across art, music, stage and talks, including a limited capacity Big Top venue installed in Sydney's Domain to house 11 nights of music and comedy.
