Sun Cycle returns home to Coburg Velodrome for another New Year’s Day celebration.
Opening 2022 with a new rotation - Come together for an all day celebration lifted by some of the most cutting-edge figures in music. Produced by the minds of Crown Ruler, WAT Artists and Untitled Group, our lineup flaunts the boundless spectrum of dance culture.
A blender of outstanding live music and genre-spanning DJs, we connect everything from soul, jazz, hip hop, house, electronica and beyond. Celebrate local favourites and the return of some special international friends. Sun Cycle will provoke and uplift revellers across all senses, featuring installations from our city’s brightest visual artists. The infamous bike track will once again be transformed into an imaginative space for freedom in dance. A site carved out for people to be themselves. Find confidence in community and dream big.
Last year, we shapeshifted our look to tread through a compromised environment. The world’s axis shifted, as did our orbit. On NYD 2022, we are returning to our original form.
From the sandy floors of the Body Heat stage, where dancers shake and contort themselves with unadulterated freedom, and pulled across by the shine of the Inner Orbit stage, where we witness live acts defining the next frontier in musical movements.
Cool off and connect in the Simmer Down tent and indulge in great local food soundtracked by warm hi-fi sound, or simply lay back upon the risen track that orbits our beloved site. Representation and accessibility is always a fundamental focus. From programming to infrastructure, we strive to create an environment that weaves our outlook all the way through. Sun Cycle is dedicated to creating an inclusive and safe environment for the rich community that makes up our city.
A day further marked by a significant Welcome To Country, a moment we encourage all of our patrons to engage with and reflect on. A lineup jam packed with diverse talent. From the infamous and those bubbling within, to icons who inspire the world over, we enjoy the power of music amidst challenging times. Start 2022 on the right foot and prick your ears to the right notes; Sun Cycle is set to be another day to remember.This event will take place on the lands of the Wurrundjeri People of the Kulin Nation.
We acknowledge their Elders past, present and emerging and pay their respect to all First Nations people. Always Was, Always Will Be.
