Tropfest

^^

When: Saturday 17th February
Where: The Crescent, Parramatta Park

Tropfest has grown significantly since its humble beginnings at the Tropicana Café in Sydney’s Darlinghurst in 1993, where an eager crowd of 200 showed up for a short film screening. This year we expect tens of thousands of festival goers and film lovers to join us in beautiful Parramatta Park. You can now enhance your Tropfest experience (and avoid the crowds and lines!) by purchasing a ticket to ‘Pick Your Patch’. Pick Your Patch is the ultimate way for you and your friends and family to watch Tropfest. Located in an exclusive, reserved area with a premium view of the big screens, you will be provided your own personal seat for the night AND have access to a private bar, food stalls and bathroom facilities - which can only be accessed by Pick Your Patch ticket holders. Come and support this uniquely Australian event, while experiencing an amazing night of film, fun and food in Parramatta!

Touch Bass 2018

^^

When: Sunday 1st April
Where: Hordern Pavilion

Returning after a bar-setting, sold out debut in 2017, TOUCH BASS returns to go deep this Easter with another international-heavy lineup at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. Unwrapping a delicious lineup, TOUCH BASS delivers a sonorous basket of bass house, dubstep trap hop & break beat flavours. Stepping up the game in 2018 with a full live LED showcase, lead by one of the worlds leading visual performances from apocalyptic prince Excision (CAN) bringing his current mind bending visuals. Returning to Australian shores for the first time since slaying Listen Out, Getter (US) feeds a growing cult following down under, with his signature party friendly blend of bass, hip-hop and dubstep. Straight off the back of Chicken Soup, Habstrakt (FR) for the first time to AU arenas as one of the leading lights in the bass house movement. TOUCH BASS also sees the AU debut of Swedish trio Brohug (SWE); tipped to be one of 2018's biggest movers with an incredible array of recent and forthcoming releases. Homegrown heroes Slumberjack return from the USA for their first national run of 2018, bringing their explosive live show. And rounding out the local contingent, Adelaide b-girl on the rise Godlands joins the festival for the first time.

PURE 2018

^^

When: Saturday 28th April
Where: Hordern Pavilion

One of Australia's most loved techno events, returns for its third year to announce another huge lineup. PURE, presented and curated by Carl Cox, Eric Powell of Bush Records and Richie McNeill of Hardware, will see Paco Osuna (Spain), Nastia (Ukraine) and Fabio Neural (Italy) take PURE to the next stage in 2018. Celebrating techno and house music, PURE has quickly established itself as a must attend event for dance music fans across the two countries, thanks to its reputation as an event where the audience can make a special connection with the DJs. Paco Osuna from Spain has enjoyed being a local hero in Ibiza for years. He is one of, if not Spain’s most famous DJ playing the legendary Florida 135 in Barcelona regularly, to playing heavily across Ibiza during the summer as well as the infamous Elrow parties. Nastia from Ukraine needs no introduction with her blend of driving techno fused with Detroit tones. The fastest rising DJ from this sector of the planet. Fabio Neural from Italy is best known for his output on Carl’s Intec Digital label. Playing Ibiza at Pure this year at Privilege, he’s shown us what he is capable of with his driving techno reminiscent of his peers Joseph Capriati and Marco Carola. Join us for a night of Pure techno, delivered with incredible sound in an old fashioned no nonsense, no fluff rave atmosphere.

2018 Lineup:
Carl Cox (Frankston)
Paco Osuna (Spain)
Nastia (Ukraine)
Fabio Neural (Italy)
Eric Powell (Australia)
