Astral People, V Movement & N.A.S Present
Summer Dance #1 - Julio Bashmore (UK), Florian Kupfer (GER), Andy Garvey, EK Collective
Astral People, in conjunction with V Movement, are proud to announce the return of Summer Dance, a series of outdoor parties in the heart of Sydney. In amongst the lush surrounds of the National Art School, the founders of OutsideIn Festival will again host four outdoor Sunday sessions running through January to March.
Renowned for delivering exceptionally curated line-ups, Sydney-based artist management and touring company Astral People have hand-picked an impressive line-up of international and local house, techno and electronic talents, sure to deliver the perfect selection of blissful Sunday summer beats.
Now in its second year, the Astral People and National Art School boutique collaboration is expanding in both profile and experience. Each event will once again see DJs take to the stage for a series of extended outdoor summer sets, but this year is set to discover an entirely new realm of the National Art School.
Kicking off this year's series is UK house maestro Julio Bashmore, followed by the multifaceted musical institution that is George Evelyn, aka Nightmares On Wax, and the remarkably diverse DJ, producer and vinyl collector Hun Choi aka Hunee.
Summer Dance's first-rate international contingent continues with deep house aficionado and founder of Parisian label 'My Love is Underground' Jeremy Underground, Belgian tastemaker and eclectic mixmaster Lefto, UK's hypnotic house DJ and Producer Mark E, one of Chicago's top DJs specialising in rare, hard-to-find grooves Sadar Bahar and German drum machine savant and L.I.E.S. cohort Florian Kupfer.
Local heroes sporting day-to-night couture and compositions, and rounding off the on-point line-up, include Touch Sensitive, Andras, Mike Who, Lovebombs, Adi Toohey, Ariane, Andy Garvey and EK Collective.
The dynamic offering of artists promises to deliver sublime summer grooves surrounded by the historic walls of the old Darlinghurst goal. With rustic sandstone buildings, lush green grass and age-old trees, there's no venue more fitting for the ultimate Sunday session. Showcasing the finest selectors from around the globe, Summer Dance returns in 2016 as the most unique music experience that Sydney has to offer and is sure to be the hottest ticket in town this summer.
