Venue moved – Saturday 9th November 2019

In an exciting coup for music-fans, music festival ONE ELECTRIC DAY is moving its inaugural Sydney show on Saturday 9th November 2019 to the UNESCO World-Heritage listed Cockatoo Island. Due to the highly anticipated concert which is now being filmed, ONE ELECTRIC DAY headlined by ‘The Voice’ John Farnham, will play to the majestic backdrop of this fascinating historical site in the heart of Sydney’s Harbour.

Headlined by the incomparable John Farnham with special guests James Reyne, Jon Stevens, Vanessa Amorosi, and a special reformation by Southern Sons, this is a show that no music fan should miss. Add to the fact that it is being held in one of the most unique locations in Australia, and this is what music memories are made of. ONE ELECTRIC DAY has been selling out annually in Victoria for the past seven years, and with the music festival now making its New South Wales home at Cockatoo Island, Sydney audiences are in for an unforgettable day out!

Considered one of the best male vocalists of all time – by both fans and fellow musicians – John Farnham has had an incredibly versatile career. This year marks a massive milestone for the incredible performer, July 1 marked his 70th birthday and he is still going strong. Even the National Film & Sound Archive has putting together a special exhibition to commemorate his birthday year. Headlining ONE ELECTRIC DAY this year will see him perform his greatest hits. John Farnham’s 1986 album Whispering Jack was the first record to sell over a million copies in Australia and its chart topping single You’re The Voice cemented the honey toned solo artist as ‘the voice’ of the country. Over the next several years he released hit after hit, including Pressure Down, Reasons, A Touch of Paradise, Age of Reason, Two Strong Hearts, Angels, Talk of The Town, Chain Reaction, Burn for You, Have A Little Faith (In Us) and That’s Freedom to name a few. His music has become the soundtrack of generations and all ages of music fans pack out his performances.

James Reyne has been treading the boards in the rock halls of Australian music for decades. From his time fronting the legendary Australian Crawl through to his successful solo career, James’ music is part of Australian history. For lovers of great music, a concert experience with Jon Stevens is up there with the very best. From his Noiseworks days – and hits such as Welcome To The World, No Lies, Touch and Hot Chilli Woman – to fronting The Dead Daisies and INXS, he has made an indelible impact with his amazing vocals. Vanessa Amorosi’s recent return to the Australian stage has been embraced by audiences. Her debut album The Power (2000) demonstrated Vanessa was a force to reckon with – it notched up six nominations at the ARIA awards and saw her sing at the Sydney Olympics. She has sold over two million records! Reforming after 22-years, Southern Sons are back together for ONE ELECTRIC DAY. In the 1990s their ARIA-nominated debut self-titled album hit #5 on the charts and spawned smash hits Heart In Danger, Hold Me In Your Arms, Always & Forever and Waiting For That Train.
