Bourke Street Courtyard


10 PM - 5 AM


Lineup: Bella Claxton, Clare Choveaux b2b Emma Renée, Gumm, Hamslice, Mode B, Marli, Lucas Boston, Sami + Turbo Thot

Following a big summer season with more than a few big moments, the Novel/Associated Artists crew team up once more for a takeover. This time, we venture to familiar ground at Bourke Street Courtyard. Bella Claxton, Gumm and Marli together have graced stages at smalltown, Let Them Eat Cake, Forum Melbourne, Splendour in the Grass, Pitch Music & Arts + more, curating heaving peak-time dancefloor sets, and earning a dedicated following in the process. Alongside them, we invite Turbo Thot and Lucas Boston who are no stranger to the Novel stage, and are well-loved for their ability to move a dancefloor with big energy and fluid mixing.

Curating the side room, we welcome the esteemed Toast crew. Known for promoting heavy local lineups, and a tightly curated mix series, they invite Hamslice, Mode B, Sami, and Clare Choveaux b2b Emma Renée to join us at our takeover. You’re in good hands with this one. We’ll see you there.
