How to throw a good party in five steps with SWYTCH ahead of #PS12
Creating a clubnight with a focus on diverse beats and a femme flavour is no easy task, yet the three masterminds behind SWYTCH have made it work. Kicking off their initiative at the end of last year, SWYTCH signifies a shift in Sydney’s club culture, moving forward to promote a platform for women and non-binary artists in an essentially genreless setting, aimed at an audience that comes with open minds and a desire to dance.
Having linked up at a DJ competition, Non Chalant (aka Flower Boy), Chris Blanc and Kilimi went onto create SWYTCH thanks to a shared love of underground club sounds and the mutual search for something more than what was on offer for them in Sydney’s club scene. With a few parties already under their belt, their aim is to not only reinvigorate those who may have been disillusioned by Sydney’s lock out laws, as well as increasing not only the visibility of underrepresented groups in the industry, but underrepresented sounds and styles as well.
We can’t get enough of what SWYTCH is about, which is why we are just so excited to have them DJ at our 12th birthday party on June 16 as a part of Vivid Sydney. To get to know them a little better, they’ve given us a step-by-step guide on how to throw a good party. In just five steps, you might find you can throw a party as good as SWYTCH can. Check it all out below, and catch them DJing at PS12 – tickets here!
STEP ONE: Sort out your music + decorations. Organise a place to sit! (Dancing’s a workout)
STEP TWO: Choose a theme. Make sure it’s insta-worthy.
STEP THREE: Snack responsibly. Don’t throw a party on an empty stomach. Don’t come to a party on an empty stomach.
STEP FOUR: Set the vibe: a safe space goes a long way.
STEP FIVE: Have fun! If you can’t enjoy your party then no one else will.
