Sydney, gird your loins: You’re getting a 24 Hour Party next month!
With dancing back and lockout laws repealed, Sydney is slowly but surely coming back to life and finding its feet in this new normal world we find ourselves in. While the music scene has been repeatedly been dealt blow after blow as it’s trying to get back on its feet after COVID-19, there are still many good people on the ground fighting the good fight in bringing music and parties back to their communities. And, come May 15th and 16th, this is exactly what is going down in a very big way.
A whopping ELEVEN venues will be joining forces for a full 24 Hour Party, with an all-star line up of homegrown talent descending on the city from 8am Saturday morning until 8am Sunday morning.
Venues including The Erko, Kings Cross Hotel, Barangaroo House, Tokyo Sing Song, Waywards, Goros and more are all taking part, with acts like Banoffee, Ben Fester, Claire Morgan, Dena Amy, Hayley Mary, I Know Leopard, Jennifer Loveless, Kesmar, KLP, Mickey Kojak, The Regime, Stevan and more all locked in. And the best part is: IT’S FREE!
“Since dancefloors reopened last month, there’s been an electric energy across our venues – people want to party,” Solotel Group CEO Elliot Soloman said in a press statement.
“Similarly, the excitement among the music and entertainment industry to get back out doing what they do best is palpable. We are in the business of creating incredible experiences for our guests and appreciate our industry partners and friends have had it tough the past year.”
