Brisbane Powerhouse has announced the return of ΩHM Festival of Other Music after the event’s triumphant debut earlier this year. Taking other music to the next level, organisers have booked Yothu Yindi in a festival-exclusive performance, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon with her Objective Projection visual arts exhibition, and many more.

Curated by Brisbane Powerhouse Arts Program Director Brad Spolding and celebrated composer Lawrence English, the event will take over the Brisbane Powerhouse from 28 February until 20 April 2024. Alongside the acts mentioned above, ΩHM Festival has booked in local and international talent, including the mind-bending music of Michael Rother celebrating 50 years of NEU!, Drab Majesty and Boris and works by Stephanie Lake, Chunky Move and more, which you can find below.

“From Japanese metal gods BORIS to electronic Krautrock luminary Michael Rother and legendary Australian First Nations collective Yothu Yindi, OHM 2024 presents the most influential artists in contemporary art today,” Spolding said in a press release.

“After a massive first edition, we are excited for OHM's return with a bigger free program, inviting locals to catch artists like WITCH (We Intend To Cause Havoc), Penelope Trappes, The Wilds and Chunky Move at no cost.”

Spolding continued, “For our second festival, we have also added an extensive program of new contemporary dance soundtracked by composers like Anna Whitaker and Robin Fox, featuring local company ADC alongside the stunning Stephanie Lake Company. Rounding out the multi-artform celebration, Sonic Youth founder Kim Gordon presents her first-ever exhibition in Australia.”

Pre-sale tickets will be available from 10 am local time on Thursday, 9 November – you can sign up here for early access tickets. General sale tickets will be available on Friday, 10 November, at 10 am AEST via Ticketek.
