April Sun – the new brainchild of Live Nation, Pavilion Australia and revered local tastemakers Shadow Electric – will go down in the St Kilda Triangle next to the iconic Palais Theatre. The event allows attendees to book single tickets to each gig and hang out in a position of their choice in each zone, letting them enjoy all the action in a COVIDSafe manner – and yes, dancing is allowed.
