TICKETS ON SALE NOW
One of life's certainties is the warm embrace of an old memory that reminds you of good times. What about that time when Nina Kraviz, Ben Klock and Bicep played at the Caulfield Racecourse? Those were good times. Or what about that time when Dixon, Mano Le Tough and Recondite went above and beyond to soundtrack one of the best days we’ve certainly had? Stop it, we want to go back... In fact, we can't let it go and we have to go back. We are in the business of creating memories. So we will…
This upcoming February novel will activate the Caulfield Racecourse once again for smalltown - and we’ve invited some of the best to oversee the day...
We welcome back Axel Boman, the ringleader of Sweden’s eccentric house collective Studio Barnhus. It has been two years since this merrymaking master of music enthralled us at Pitch Music & Arts so expect him to come in hot. No one dabbles harder in sweet frivolities than this Swedish King of House. Expect Fun with a capital F.
By day George Fitzgerald lives an unassuming life as a citizen of London, inhabiting production studios to make music released on revered labels like Domino Records and Hotflush. By night he takes control of global clubs to spread his gospel of fluid house and shimmering techno. Don’t be fooled: His modest demeanour disguises the fact that his music is powerful enough to make you cut your hair, revert to his cult and convert to a way of living that seems more safe and comforting than the current rubbish being doled out by society’s political instability and social anxieties.
We don’t understand why Tom Trago has not been officially elected the Mayor of Nightlife in Amsterdam. He is well versed in subverting you from life’s daily grind, and his sets should come with a guarantee that you will be present and in the moment: in fact, his DJ sets may or may not have been compared to possess the healing power of a 24-hour Buddhist meditation session. This Dekmantel favourite is entirely undeniable and utterly engaging.
