He is also an absolutely legendary DJ. He is a force to be reckoned with, and one of the most exciting DJs we’ve hosted to date.

He is… the phreakiest, the phunkiest, the one and only, Mike Dunn!

Vivid: Picnic presents HER w/ Pjenné & Millú (Melb)

Pjennemillu

Picnic boss Kali has curated the entire program for Vivid Sydney at Harpoon Harry including this Picnic takeover featuring two of our favourite DJs from across the border…

All the way from Melbourne, Pjenné and Millú!

Pjenné is a versatile purveyor of vibe matched only by those who have been buying and playing records for years. With a record collection that boasts an exquisite taste for blue eyed soul, modal, spiritual jazz and the uplifting yet hedonistic roots of disco and house, you have a fine selector.

She’ll be playing alongside fellow DJ Millú whose deep cache of obscure jams, esoteric rhythms and club cuts forego conventional genre standards. Just as likely to be soundtracking your yum cha as they are to be moving a dance floor, these accomplished Melbourne DJs make their debut Sydney appearance for VIVID 2017.

Supports from:
Kali
Adi Toohey
Nat James
