The Guinness World Record for the worlds smallest mobile nightclub was broken by Australian artist Harry Nathan and his twin brother Boonie.
Australian's have a reputation for their harsh competitiveness and also their love for dance music. This week we saw the both combine, with the Guinness World Record for the worlds smallest mobile nightclub being broken by Australian electronic artist Harry Nathan and his twin brother Boonie, in their Sydney backyard.
The brothers repurposed a corrugated metal shed, aptly named the ‘Doof Shed’, turning it into a nightclub with a dancefloor that spans just 1.53m x 0.74m. The Doof Shed is equipped with a Focal sound system, Pioneer DJ setup, intelligent lighting and a “Full Send” button, which activates a smoke machine, strobe, flashing lights and lasers to emulate the full-body, sensory club experience.
“Dance music culture continues to experience setbacks worldwide, with music festivals and nightclubs closing or being cancelled at a rapid rate. The landscape has become very difficult for promoters to schedule future events, running the risk of having their events cancelled last minute due to COVID restrictions or sudden government lockdowns.” says Harry.
After the relaxing of Sydney restrictions, the twins have opened up the experience and exhibit the miniature club to the general public for one day. It's a ballot system with all proceeds going to mental health charities and pandemic aid.
