Top 10 Sydney Revelry On this week 09/06/2019
The vivid lights are waning. Time to bust out the flame-thrower.
10) Pyjama Party
What: Everything is better when you put on your favourite pair of PJ’s! So slip into your comfiest garms and enjoy a glass of wine or two whilst feasting on an epic grazing station with mates.
Why: Just make sure you invest in what you want people to think you sleep in. Spending exorbitant amounts on an adult-sized ‘cute’ onesie is far more socially lubricating than a 10 year old shirt comprised of more bodily fluids than actual fabric.
9) Patrice Baumel ‘Up Close and Personal’
What: This is your chance to experience 3 uninterrupted hours of Patrice Baumel in an intimate rooftop setting. With his highly anticipated Global Underground Berlin mix dropping in days and after he stole the show at Rainbow, this will be one very special evening.
Why: Going under with Patrice has never sounded less like an eighty year old English couple faced with Brexit-related redundancy. There’ll definitely be much cleaner language used.
8) Morning Glory
What: Morning Glory: High Tea is back to celebrate Queen Lizzie’s Birthday! Dance the morning away with your nearest and dearest looking over the picturesque Darling Harbour as the sun rises on what is set to be another glorious morning. Featuring 2 terraces and a rooftop, 6 DJs, Bloody Marys and Espresso Martinis.
Why: If you say Bloody Mary three times, you’ll end up blind. Fair trade.
7) Pictures at Limited
What: Experience clubbing the way it was before lockout laws and politics; Kings Cross nightlife and House music the way it’s meant to be! Sydney’s best DJ’s that dominated the clubs in the early 2000’s will be getting together for one night to lay down some proper House tunes.
Why: Nostalgia for the Howard era. We can’t knock it. It makes sense. At least we knew the name of the guy we were supposed to despise. Now, from day to day, it’s anyone’s guess.
6) Extra Dirty feat. Ben Manson and Rony Golding
What: DJs and Producers Ben Manson and Rony Golding are the heavy hitters of the European Queer Techno scene. They’re bringing an extra dimension to Extra Dirty, playing together at ED for the first time.
Why: One of the times in this contemporary era when ‘ED’ isn’t a reference to a debilitating mental disorder. Though we can’t guarantee there won’t be feeding tubes involved following this event.
5) ATRIUM Open-Air feat. Persian Rug and Donald Leicester
What: This Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend, Alfresco and PRIMAL invite you to celebrate under the light of the sky at ATRIUM Open-Air. Beginning in the early afternoon, you will dance through the sunset into the late evening to the sounds of Sydney’s top tier house and minimal selectors.
Why: Nothing screams wild rooftop rave like the image of a geriatric woman trapped by gilded circumstance in a room filled with the slow-moving products of generational inbreeding (we’re referring to the corgis).
4) APIA Good Times Tour
What: The 7th Apia Good Times Tour will be the biggest yet with performances from Allstars Vika and Linda Bull, Brian Cadd, Joe Camilleri, Kate Ceberano, Russell Morris, Ross Wilson and John Paul Young for this unique, once-in-a-lifetime concert experience.
Why: Hey kid, wanna see a dead body? How ’bout seven?
3) Sydney Cabaret Festival
What: Welcome to Sydney Cabaret, an exciting new festival featuring over 40 performances in 10 glorious days, where artists and audiences collide. The festival features incredible vocals, hilarious comedy and sexy circus, there’s literally something for everyone.
Why: There’s something for everyone. Including that part of you that has become numb to the excesses of porn and desires to be aroused by a fishnetted leg and a somehow always slightly German affected accent.
2) Sydney Film Festival
What: The world’s best new films come to Sydney every June for 12 days and nights of inspiring and entertaining premieres, talks and parties. Be among the first in Australia to see the greatest, strangest and most exciting work that cinema has to offer.
Why: Turn your eyes away from the laser lights of the city illuminating the joyous faces of children and towards the haggard shafts of light illuminating the Armenian genocide.
What: Vivid Sydney’s multi-award-winning festival of light, music and ideas returns to illuminate Sydney with mesmerising new light art and projections and deliver a fresh new program of music and ideas.
Why: Once again the city will be set alight and it’s not as a result of post-election riots.
