PICNIC TURNS 9!

THEGANG

2016 – 2017 was a pretty epic year for Picnic and it played host to some of our fave dances! We’ve managed to lock in a few of our Sydney buddies who played for us while we were eight, to continue a happy tradition set at our 7th Birthday; we’ll be going full family affair styles with some very special cheek to cheek sets from yours (and our) favourites!

PICNIC ONE NIGHT STAND W/ KALI

You’ve likely seen Kali play in all kinds of spaces around town, supporting some of the world’s biggest names. Although her curation of Picnic already affirms her exquisite taste, her warm-up and cool-down sets for an incredible variety of acts show an extra level of nuance and ability that make her one of Sydney’s greatest DJ assets. From deep, entrancing techno to loin-warming house, joyous disco and anything besides, she’s just incredible at setting the tone and priming the floor for truly memorable nights.


And thus, it’s time for another ALL NIGHT SET from KALI for her second ONE NIGHT STAND! Round two is going to be nothing short of spectacular, tucked into a wonderful BYO space with huge sound and all the vibes.

Unpopular opinion but we’re already feeling a bit nostalgic for 2016 because there are soooo many dances from last year that we’d love to take for another spin. A recent stand out is definitely our all night jig with the one and only Tornado Wallace!

So you can imagine how psyched we are to announce his second coming next week at one of our fave BYO spots!!
