BIG FUN
We’ve dug deep into defining pockets of Sydney’s musical landscape for our King Street Carnival whole venue take-over of the Marly. And we’re excited.
Main Floor
On the main floor we have the one and only Nina Las Vegas headlining the party. From her years on triple j to her NLV Records, Nina is one of the most influential figures in the Australian music scene. She has spent years dedicating herself to promoting and celebrating the sounds of underground dance music from both Australia and abroad and she has fun while doing it.
PRINCI will be bringing her fantastical visions to the party with a live set. The Sydney-based rapper, poetess and DJ interweaves classical instrumentation with dissonant synths and syrupy vocals into one irresistible sound.
An artist who has been making big waves in 2021 is Tseba. With the release of his new single ‘Eastern Lights’ on Future Classic this month, he will be bringing his dancefloor thumpers to the party.
Melbourne rapper/DJ Mulalo will be taking no prisoners with her blistering set of ballroom, Jersey, baile funk, and pop edits galore.
Caitlin Medcalf rounds out the line up with her high energy, turbo club music.
Tokyo Sing Song
We’ve teamed up with buddies Planet Trip to re-unite in our spiritual home Tokyo Sing Song for a late night dance floor journey with some of Sydney’s finest underground deejays and a very special live – dancefloor focused – live set from Body Corp. On the DJ front he’ll be joined by Adi Toohey + Greville, Clutch4Love and Evie. Tickets will go onsale this week for this part of the party.
Cuckoo
Up in Cuckoo, Sydney-based rap label & platform Trackwork is taking over for the night to launch Kobi Spice x Sevy “Fiji Water” featuring Kobi Spice, Sevy, VV, Utility DJ + others.
Founded by Austin Benjamin, Trackwork label showcases cutting-edge pop and rap featuring works from Indigenous rappers T-Breezy and Walkerboy, Zambian hip-hop artist Sevy, ex-Dispossessed punk singer Bayang and producer Utility.
Trackwork is sharing real Australian stories through new voices and tunes that weave together sounds in an original way that demands attention. A deeper understanding of our culture can be gained from their output.
SOUNDS LIKE BIG FUN TO US.
