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.

Queerbourhood, Picnic Touring & Events, The House of Mince, Strange Signals + [ insert ] very proudly present a free show for
Musician, public speaker, and owner of the Comatonse Recordings record label. Her work critically combines themes of identity politics – including gender, sexuality, class, linguistics, ethnicity and race. Whether she is playing or producing deep house as DJ Sprinkles or presenting one of her live performances, Terre is perpetually arresting and you’re always sitting right inside her mind.
For our performance on Wednesday she’ll present Lovebomb. This event will reach capacity, we recommend you come down as early as possible, The Bearded Tit opens at 6pm. DJ support from Stereogamous and shows from Koco Carey & Sarah Moaney!

DJ, producer and label boss, Jayda produced her first release in 2015 under everyone’s favourite local label Butter Sessions. In 2016 she released her first solo EP and having gone from strength to strength, she’s now heading up her own label, Freakout Cult, with the help of DJ Fett Burger. Her rare ability to maintain the heavy groove while swimming between genres makes her a favourite amongst dancers and a goddess amongst DJs. We’re also still swooning over every track she’s released to date and we’re dying to hear them blasted through the sound system at the Civic.
We can’t think of any better supports than:

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!

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.
