This madness can only mean one thing: The circus is back….
For years now Circoloco has been the number one stop for White Isle visitors; a crazy, decadent event that hosts only the world’s best selectors as residents. The crowd is loose, an enchanting tribe of international supporters who leave their inhibitions at the door, hell-bent on forgetting about life-issues and shit, intent on basking in an energy that can be seen from space. The production is always worthy of a carnival, if not a touch more outrageous - and the vibe is almost too good to be true.
After 2 years Circoloco is finally returning to Melbourne, and this will be wildest ride yet. The bass will be thick and the beat will be contagious, a soundtrack provided by some of the Circo’s most renowned ringmasters…. Get your tickets now as this will be a full house.

Clive is one of the UK’s longest standing flag-wavers for underground house music having been an original member of the West London house mafia, one half of the genre-defining tech house outfit Peace Division and resident at the world’s most musically influential nightclub DC10. Clive’s residency at DC10 brought him into contact with Crosstown Rebels frontman Damian Lazarus who quickly brought Clive into the Crosstown family. No you can catch Clive regularly at Circo Loco in Ibiza, MuMu in Liverpool, Kubicle in London, Droog in LA and at Crosstown Rebels events worldwide.
Dense & Pika
Dense & Pika grew up on a diet of techno from Jeff Mills and Surgeon. And you can hear this in their house/techno hybrid productions which are currently some of the most used weapons in club land. They have played live at the cream of the world's clubs including Trouw (Amsterdam), Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London) and BPM (Mexico) for Richie Hawtin's Enter night. They regularly receive club support from electronic music's finest DJ dignitaries such as Skream, Scuba, Breach, George Fitzgerald, Adam Beyer, Dubfire, Jackmaster, Dusky and beyond. They've even taken the time out to remix the likes of Maya Jane Coles and Paul Woolford. This will be the British duo’ debut Australian tour.
Sitting atop her throne as the Queen of Crosstown Rebels, Francesca has cultivated a sound that is all her own. Representative of her multi-disciplinary musical background, Francesca’s music transcends the dance floor; each track providing an emotional narrative, full of wistful dreamy soundscapes, stirring melodies, deep, hypnotic rhythms and her unforgettable vocals. With all these skills and musical experiences available to draw on, the future looks bright for Francesca Lombardo - she has been signed to the much lauded Rebel Agency alongside the likes of scene darlings Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex and Art Department.
KiNK has become one of house music’s most in demand producers and remixers: his tracks easily stand out in any club night and they are second to none in the most competitive environment electronic music has ever seen. His abilities in finding the ‘sweet spot’ of new machines and even of sounds considered ‘classic’ and to reshape them into totally different beasts would be totally enough to justify the phenomenon. KiNK’s live sets consist of a small set up of machines and controllers, but every knob turned produces an audible result. KiNK’s ability to nail smash beats on the fly, well visibly and audibly, that most people couldn’t program in weeks of studio work – this ‘credibility of sound’ right where it matters is what sparks the love everywhere he visits.
With a sound born in New York, ripened in London and refined in Berlin, Margaret Dygas is an artist whose sound possesses a true international resonance. Following her move to Berlin in 2007, Margaret started producing and writing her own music, and has since then released EP’s and full-length albums on Contexterrior, PowerShovelAudio, Perlon and Non Standard Productions. While a bi-monthly residence at Berlin's Panorama Bar and weekly travels around the globe is keeping her busy, Margaret always makes sure to fit in some down-time with her two cats, a nice jazz record and a cup of warm milk.
Be it his sets at Offenbach’s Robert-Johnson, Amnesia in Ibiza or Berlin’s Tollhaus Berghain/Panorama Bar, Flügel’s sets are loved the world over. He plays contemporary music that can include bleeping house or quirky techno which meets futuristic Italo-disco and electronica. His remixes (e.g. for Daft Punk, The Human League, Primal Scream, Pet Shop Boys, Kylie Minogue) and tracks under his own name (just think of the Arcade rave of “Geht’s Noch”) are light dancefloor affirmations which cemented this producer as one of the world’s most unique engineers. 2015 could not have been a bigger year for this legendary producer, with a release schedule that has seen him be playlisted in every corner of the globe, and written about in every dance media worth its salt.
