PLAYLIST: Party Picks For The Easter Long Weekend
Every Easter we are spoilt with two wonderful things, delicious chocolate eggs and some pretty epic parties over the long weekend. Throughout the four day holiday, electronic music fans in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane will be given the opportunity this year to see quite an awesome range of house, bass, techno and disco music from Australia and around the world.
In Sydney, our friends at Brown Bear Entertainment and Future Classic are combining their magnificent party hosting skills and putting on a rather splendid night of dance music in Sydney on Thursday, featuring RUSTIE and NIGHTWAVE, as well as Sydney newcomer BASENJI. The following evening it’s Melbourne’s turn as CANT SAY will be blowing out the candles for their third birthday with the two UK bass machines and the return of WAVE RACER, following a hugely successful tour of the USA.
On Saturday in Sydney, Stoney Roads are putting on a day party at a secret location with T.WILLIAMS, while Brisbane will get the chance to see the man in action on Sunday at the famous Bowler Bar along with NEW YORK TRANSIT AUTHORITY. Back in Sydney on Sunday, there will also be an absolutely enormous Courtyard Party going down at the Ivy featuring JOHN DAHLBACK, SICK INDIVIDUALS, WAVE RACER, M4SONIC, KILTER, BASENJI, WORDLIFE, MOTORIK VIBE COUNCIL and many more!
If techno and house is more for you, there will be visits from DFA Records dude SHIT ROBOT, GORGE, Germany’s TIEFSCHWARZ, ALEX NIGGEMANN and too many more names to mention!
