OUR 5 FAVOURITE ASTRAL PEOPLE MOMENTS

Sydney tastemakers, label makers & booty shakers Astral People are celebrating their 5th Birthday this weekend (with a tidy lineup of Wave Racer, Polographia, Baro and Rainbow Chan) and we thought it was only fitting to celebrate with a good old fashioned Top 5 list.


OUTSIDEIN FEAT. FLUME & THOM YORKE

  • Yes. You read correctly. The inaugural OutsideIn festival in 2012 featured Oliver Tank, HTRK and halfway down the lineup Flume. A young budding producer who is making one of his first festival appearances. The fesitval generated so much buzz that Thom Yorke (yes THAT Thom Yorke) popped his head in for a boogie.


4TH BIRTHDAY CARPARK RAVE

  • This time last year, the Astral People boys threw a party for the decades in a Darling Harbour carpark. Needless to say, it was sweaty, it was dank, it was supreme.


FIRST SUMMER DANCE

  • For those unaware, Astral People throw insane garden parties in the National Art School courtyards with the likes of DJ EZ, Omar-S, Moodymann and Julio Bashmore, and the very first one in 2015 was the breath of fresh air that Sydney needed.


SINCE I LEFT YOU - THE ASTRAL PEOPLE TRIBUTE

  • The Avalanches. An inspiration for musicians across the globe and also for Astral People who assembled an army of their finest to tackle a set completely covering the group's debut Since I Left You. Check it out again here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQpAo2XQCHY


THE VIVID PARTIES

  • VIVID Sydney has proved time and time again that Sydney craves quality culture and for 3 years, Astral People have been given their own event to showcase their unique view of partying in Sydney. Needless to say, they were huge.


Apart from running a label, managing artists and running the coolest of cool events in town, we all have Astral People to thank for nurturing the likes of Snakehips, Cashmere Cat, Tycho, Stormzy & Ryan Hemsworth who cut their teeth in tiny clubs before launching into global forces. It's the people like Astral taking a punt on underground who make this industry keep on going.
Come along to their epic birthday bash this weekend!
