Headlining her own Fringe show, Melbourne based Indie-Rock singer-songwriter, Olympia, was captivating and hypnotic on Thursday night. Performing songs off her 2016 released album, Self Talk, Olympia's show will leave you with a lot to talk about.
Performing in one of the Garden’s most spectacular venues, perfectly matching her aesthetic; you can see her in the Magic Mirror Spiegeltent at the Garden of Unearthly Delights.
The platinum blonde leading lady had complete command of the stage as she performed her repertoire of songs with the support of her band. Olympia wore a stunning, shimmering mini dress; and with guitar in hand, she looked and sounded like an absolute star. The revolving stage in the centre completed the picture!
Having already amassed immense support from Triple J Unearthed, which you could visibly surmise made up a large proportion of her audience, it's easy to say that 2017 will have big things in store for Olympia - and the Adelaide Fringe Festival is just the beginning!
Olympia projects a magnetic aura in her live sets, and embodies an incredibly raw and velvety sound that will have you captivated from the moment her lips touch the mic.
