NONSTOP WKND: Coalesce 005

This event is part of Now Or Never 2023.

70 industry leading artists. 12 unique shows. Six iconic Melbourne venues—NONSTOP WKND is the choose-your-own-adventure festival within a festival closing Now or Never with a bang.

Witness some of the most exciting artists of the moment at the cutting edge of electronic music at the fifth instalment of Coalesce, featuring hyper lineup of local and international artists leading the scene.

Headlining Coalesce is US-based visionary pansexual icon, Alice Longyu Gao (China), known for their genre-defying and high energy performances. Gao’s output is not constrained by one medium, working as a DJ, curator and fashion producer alongside institutions such as like MoMA, Juicy Couture and Nike.

Alice will be joined on the lineup by SEBii, a Chinese American artist and producer known for his upbeat pop rap sound that encompasses elements of glitchcore and nightcore.

Fresh off supporting Charli XCX and Slayyyter on their Australian tours, Prophecy Girl will showcase his unique blend of pop-club edits and four-to-the-floor rave anthems while CLAIR, founder on renowned club night Celestia, is following a successful touring run in Shanghai.

Melbourne/Naarm punk outfit Resenter will also be performing off the back of their acclaimed I Thought This Was My Dream / Morningstar tape release, while Marceline will offer their special blend of vulnerable lyrics with abrasive production paired with pop sensibility, alongside the lush, ethereal sounds of ambient electronic producer Mayari.
