Celebrate Friction's 23rd Birthday feat Nubreed + Anthony Pappa

Friction is excited to invite you to a party full of nostalgia and big vibes. Dance to your favourite progressive house and breakbeat classics. We're celebrating our 23rd birthday with an extraordinary lineup of Australia's much-loved underground musical maestros during the day and some of our current favourite local acts to take us deep into the AM. Get ready for an iconic Friction event like no other!


Hailing from Melbourne's vibrant underground scene, the Nu Skool Breaks legends Nubreed have etched countless memories on the dance floor with their dynamic live performances over the years. Comprising Jase, Myke, and Db, this band has transcended the conventional boundaries of dance music. Drawing inspiration from old-school jazz, neo-tech, funk, breaks, hip-hop, and drum and bass, Nubreed is not just a group – they're a musical force. Experience their raw, explosive, and dynamic live show incorporating mixers, effect units, samplers, and NuBreed's signature gadgetry.


Australia's electronic music export, Anthony Pappa, graces the celebration with unparalleled talent. With a career spanning over 30 years, Anthony has left an indelible mark on the global DJ scene. Recognized for his contributions to the electronic music industry, Anthony has crafted mix compilation albums for esteemed series such as Global Underground, Renaissance, Balance, Platipus Records, and DJ Magazine. Anthony Pappa is a beacon for the Progressive House scene and dance music, with over 100 releases under various guises and sales exceeding 500,000 records, singles, and compilations.


Two of Canberra's original superstar DJs, at the forefront of electronic music with residencies at Heaven and Lot 33, return to the capital for an epic B2B set. From touring the country to making waves worldwide, they reunite again for Friction's birthday party.
