Top 10 Sydney Revelry On this week 06/01/2019
Thought the hellish season of familial togetherness and celebration was over? We remember when we were that optimistic. Then Ariana Grande had a Christmas hit.
10) Bollywood Empire Presents “BOLLYWOOD BOUNCE”
What: The Glitz and Glamour of Bollywood Parties in Sydney can be found at BOLLYWOOD EMPIRE, be prepared to party with the most fashionable and elite crowd of Sydney.
Why: What more fitting way is there to pay tribute to the Indian culture than by puking up Russian vodka in a crowded bar in Sydney under the banner of a term – Bollywood – that disparages the vast complexity of Indian cinema.
9) WeLove #182 with Joey Daniel
What: WeLove is bringing you one of the best techno artists, showcasing his talent in underground house and techno. Come see Joey Daniel do his thing.
Why: One of the best techno artists. Like one of the best viral infections.
8) Kaiser Souzai (Berlin)
5th & 6th January
What: Kaiser Souzai is an unstoppable force in the industry. Within creating his own style of meticulously designed avant-garde tech, he draws influence from greats such as Pink Floyd, Genesis and Yes. Come catch his live performance.
Why: Because who wants to listen to the real Pink Floyd when you can hear some guy cannibalising their opus and spewing it out through a synth?
7) Eclectic, Motion & Alfresco presents James Pepper
What: A BYO rooftop alfresco party held on a secret suburban rooftop featuring the talents of James Pepper, Mr. Bligs and Rory Vevers.
Why: What more hip way is there to contract skin cancer?
6) Homemade ft. ROYAAL
What: Homemade runs over 4 crazy dancefloors so if club hits aren’t your thing there are two R&B/Hip Hop rooms and our infamous deep house smoking balcony, let the good times roll.
Why: There’s nothing better than homemade. A statement we’ve always believed is utter bollocks. Unless, of course Homemade is the name of a bar night serving vast quantities of stuff that you should probably not attempt to make at home.
5) Cheese & Gin & Tonic: A Matching Masterclass
What: Explore, discuss and taste a range of amazing gins from across the globe – each one perfectly matched with a Fever-Tree tonic water and precisely paired with an artisanal cheese.
Why: Cheese? Gin? It’s a blocked toilet and a plunger. In consumable form.
4) The Jacksons, Kool & The Gang + More
What: Australia’s biggest ever Motown party will be shaking their groove things across the nation with The Jacksons, Kool & the Gang, The Pointer Sisters, Village People and more.
Why: If you’ve ever wanted to revisit a time when flared sequinned pants were an un-ironic thing, then polish up your walker and crank up that hearing aid!
What: One of the leading Australian competitive short film festivals and increasingly filmmakers view it as one of the main festivals on the world circuit, ensuring greater opportunities for our Australian short film makers internationally.
Why: There’s no better way to spend time with friends and family than in a film theatre when you’re not allowed to talk to each other.
2) FOMO Sydney
What: The epic one-day, one-stage music festival returns to Brisbane Riverstage featuring Nicki Minaj, Rae Sremmurd, Mura Masa, Kali Uchis, San Holo, Anna Lunoe, Sophie, Cosha, Carmouflage Rose, Just a Gent and Mimi.
Why: We’ve been reliably in formed that this is a big thing. To which we took offence. We know that this festival of the loud and mediocre is a big thing. In the same way a hair salon being set on fire after grooming a convention of craft beer enthusiasts would be a big thing.
1) Sydney Festival
What: 18 world premieres, city-wide free events and art in some very unusual places. Sydney Festival is descending upon summer exploding with music, theatre, dance, opera, visual arts, ideas, free and family events.
Why: Dump your awful visiting relatives in the middle of the colourful and distracting circus, sneak back home behind a troupe of street performers in offensively snug leotards and change the locks to your front door.
