Event Details

Event: Vivid Sydney, FBi Radio & UNDR Ctrl Present: ‘Purple Sneakers Tenth Birthday’

Date: Saturday June 18th

Venue: The Lord Gladstone, Chippendale

Times: 7pm - 3am. No lockout.

This year Purple Sneakers turns ten and to celebrate ‘Ten Years Of Taste’, alongside our friends UNDR Ctrl and FBi Radio, we're announcing a HUGE party at Sydney's Lord Gladstone Hotel as part of this year's already massive Vivid Sydney - the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas. Did we mention it's also FREE?!

Come June 18, we'll be bringing some of the brightest emerging acts from across the country, pairing them with respected collectives, and letting them loose over the full venue (that's three rooms!). We'll have genre-bending sounds from up and comers alongside heavy beats from club's finest.

We'll also have DJ sets from some of our most legendary and dedicated friends who also happen to be some of Australia’s best labels, blogs and parties. Annnnd of course some old mates who were there where it all began back at The Abercrombie Hotel.

And finally to round things out (and keep you dancing till they shut the doors on us) our very own Purple Sneakers DJs will be closing the night with an hour and a half 'retrospective' set. Looking back at all the bangers we've all partied, loved, celebrated and passed out to - as well as featuring some of future's finest club music in one wild set.

The way we see it we've hand-picked a selection of emerging talent for this event that we feel will follow in the footsteps of previously Purple Sneakers championed artists. The acts you see on this line up will lead the next generation of prominent and forward-thinking Australian music. This is all coupled with performances and DJ sets from people who are not only front runners in their own field, but also our best friends and biggest supporters.

In a musical climate as politically charged, yet overflowing with promise as Australia's - we feel so lucky to be a part of such a loving and supportive community. We want to use our tenth birthday to celebrate that, and also welcome you into that world.

Did we mention entry is free? No lockouts and no entry fee.
