Elefant Traks 25th Anniversary – The Finale feat Hermitude, The Herd + more | Vivid LIVE

past event


Elefant Traks was inspired by a mixtape – and ended up changing the landscape of Australian music. In 1998, Kenny Sabir and a group of multicultural friends came together to launch an independent music label that would reflect their activism and desire to champion the next generation of young Australian artists. With a roster of bold, change-making acts that grew to include the likes of The Herd and Hermitude, Elefant Traks surged to the vanguard of local hip-hop and electronic music, nurturing some of the culture’s most important new artists in the process. After 25 years, the label is going out on a high, celebrating their legacy with a huge, unmissable night featuring a line-up of their greatest artists, a big backing band and a visual show. Expect all the classics – Hermitude’s ‘The Buzz’, The Herd’s ‘The King is Dead’, OKENYO’s ‘Woman’s World’ – and much, much more.


For more than two decades, chart-topping production duo Hermitude – comprising multi-instrumentalists Luke Dubs and El Gusto – have crafted beats that blend hip-hop, funk, dubstep and pop, and electrified clubs and festival crowds from Sydney to SXSW and Lollapalooza. Their 2015 album Dark Night Sweet Light , led by the irresistible ‘The Buzz’, debuted at number one, while 2022’s Mirror Mountain saw a return to their hip-hop roots.

The Herd

One of the defining Australian hip-hop groups of the 21st century, and a band instrumental to the success of Elefant Traks, Sydney’s The Herd broke out with their 2001 single ‘Scallops’, before dropping a succession of raucous, politically charged tracks – including ‘77%’, ‘I Was Only Nineteen’ and ‘The King is Dead’ – that rocked the nation. This a rare chance to experience their legendary live performance.
