Next month some of Australia's best young artists and musicians will descend on Sydney for BAD, a festival promoting diversity across the national creative scene. Alongside the stacked music line-up that includes Kimchi Princi, Jikuroux, HTML flowers, Angie and Corin, the festival is unique for its celebration of fresh contemporary art through numerous multi-sensory installations. Among the many artists involved are Alice Joel, Wifi Over My Body, Danny Wild and Ash Bell. Rohan Willard will also be providing specialty scents — ensuring your parietal lobe is fully firing. Speaking to i-D in August, Gina — one of the organisers behind the event — said, "We want to make a memorable night where people are just like "what the fuck was that?" Safe to say, we think her dream will be realised. 

To get us in the mood, Corin has created a special playlist for i-D. With the bad theme clearly at the front of her mind, the Melbourne musician has created a soundtrack to go to war over. Describing it as music for "a dystopian future, hell on earth," she explains it's "a tribute to the anti-heroes of cyberpunk narratives — villains, misfits and dissenters." Sounds like our kind of crew.
