ONE NIGHT STAND TURNS 5 W/ BEN FESTER & ANDY WEBB

We’re gearing up for the FIFTH BIRTHDAY of the little party we call ONE NIGHT STAND! Since Tamas Jones repped Hey Convict! for the first one back in 2011, we’ve had the extreme pleasure of witnessing TWENTY all-night sets from the very best DJs in Australia – plus a guest appearance from Andrew Weatherall!

Ben Fester and Andy Webb have gone back2back and hug2hug at the last couple of Picnic birthday parties, and both times it’s resulted in a cracker of a set, so we decided ‘what the heck! Let’s get them in there!’

So that’s the score: FIVE YEARS of ONE NIGHT STAND with BEN FESTER and ANDY WEBB going ALL NIGHT LONG! June 18th at Jam Gallery, tix available now at Resident Advisor.

PICNIC SOCIAL RELAUNCH AT TATLER

After a short break to refocus and recharge Picnic Social is back and ready to ride into those Autumnal orange sunsets – this time on the Tatler terrace, and of course under the dance floor’s disco ball later in the eve!

We’ll be getting things going again this Sunday, April 10th, with the help of 100% Silk bro Magic Touch who’s in town for his Aussie debut. Joining our American guest will be three of our favourite local pals: Ben Fester, Noise In My Head and Valerie Yum. And, of course, YOU! Each week you’ll hear spicy vibes from the very best DJs in Sydney, Australia and the world 🙂

This Sunday. 6pm, Tatler. Picnic Social returns. Be there!

KALI’S BOILER ROOM RESIDENTS’ HOUR

Our very own Kali is the first Australian to contribute to Boiler Room’s coveted Residents’ Hour series which showcases some of the world’s best DJs delivering what BR call “the under-appreciated art of the warm-up.” This one takes an 80-minute snip of Kali’s extraordinary One Night Stand from last year. If you were there, relive the magic! If not, find out the magnificence that you missed.

You can listen to the mix and check out some choice words from Kali over on the Boiler Room website.

PICNIC SOCIAL IS ON HIATUS FOR A BIT

After nearly eight incredible months, we’ll be taking a rest on Sundays and Picnic Social will be on hiatus. Thanks to everybody who played, danced, drank, ate, chatted, hugged, hung and danced some more. What an amazing ride!

No need to fear – we’ll be picking things up again soon enough, bringing you more weekly good times than you can shake a disco ball at. Stay tuned 🙂

WE’RE TURNING 8 WITH SOICHI TERADA
