FBi Presents :: Kurt Vile & The Violators

Introspective slacker hero Kurt Vile writes warm and expansive songs, dipping from mellow rambles and rising to sky-scraping anthems – eager to rock out and equally unafraid to sing low and sweet.

Piecing together a motley combination of fingerpicking folk, classic rock and layered psych, the Philadelphia native delivers slow-burning sounds that have seen him called “sublime” by Pitchfork and “electrifying” by NME.

With a raft of revered albums to his name including recent release Wakin on a Pretty Daze, Vile brings understated beauty and languid charm to Paradiso, backed by his band The Violators.

For your chance to win tickets, tune in every weekday at 8:45am for FBi & ANZ’s Sydney Festival Wrap Up.
