PICNIC SOCIAL ON HIATUS FOR THE WINTER

A little public service announcement to let you all know that Picnic Social will be rugging up and hibernating for the rest of winter.

It's been a wonderfully fun few months at Tatler - humongous thanks to everyone who played, danced, drank and chatted at our lovely Sunday hang. We got to hear sets from magnificent selectors like Magic Touch and Lovefingers, we had ripper takeovers from talented people like Pelvis and Sydney Pony Club, and the vibes ranged from amazing to ridiculous: Hubert Clarke Jr's live set at our Vivid night was BONKERS! A night to remember forever.

Fear not: we'll be returning in full force on the OCTOBER LONG WEEKEND, once again delivering the very best Sunday party times down at Tatler with tonnes of great live acts and local DJs plus regular interstate and international guests taking us through the summer!! For now, stay warm and get some rest :)

PICNIC PRESENTS ONE NIGHT STAND W/ MAGDA BYTNEROWICZ

$10 EARLY BIRDS AVAILABLE NOW FROM RESIDENT ADVISOR

Now as we enter the sixth year of the One Night Stand series, we looked for a new name to add to the ONS Hall Of Fame plaque. We didn't have to look far - in fact, it's someone from our own back yard who's been on our wish list since day one.

Ladies and gentos, prepare yourselves for an all night set from the magnificent....

MAGDA BYTNEROWICZ

Where to begin with this absolute gem of a DJ? For the past decade, Magda's been quietly crushing it all over Sydney. Her 4our parties, co-run with Trinity, have been one of the coolest fixtures in the events calendar, reeling in names like Peter Van Hoesen, Steffi and Eli Verveine. And if we're going to get name droppy, her list of support slots and shows is just bonkers: DVS1, Derrick May + Jeff Mills, Tama Sumo and, most recently, Kyle Hall at Vivid. She's one of those spooky-talented people who regularly outplays the headliner they're warming up for.

She's unbelievably good at weaving together a set. Sounds simple enough (it's what all DJs are supposed to be doing after all) but Magda is next level when it comes to constructing a journey for the floor - the effects are subtle and powerful. From the deepest realms of house and techno to electric disco, her selections are always 150% on point.

Come watch a master at work deliver her debut One Night Stand! We'll be back at Jam Gallery from 9pm until close, it'll be Magda Bytnerowicz moving our feet.

PICNIC ONE NIGHT STAND 5TH BDAY W/ BEN FESTER B2B ANDY WEBB

EARLY BIRDS GONE, $15 TIX UP FOR GRABS NOW AT RESIDENT ADVISOR

We're gearing up for the FIFTH BIRTHDAY of the little party we call ONE NIGHT STAND! Since Tamas Jones repped Hey Convict! for the first one back in 2011, we've had the extreme pleasure of witnessing TWENTY all-night sets from the very best DJs in Australia - plus a guest appearance from Andrew Weatherall!

We'd firstly like to say a massive THANK YOU to those who have taken on these marathon journeys, it's entirely because of their godlike talents that the party's been such a success. Tamas Jones, Simon Caldwell, Canyons, Tornado Wallace, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Andrew Weatherall, Dreems, Phil Smart, Kali and Ben Fester - to you we say BRAVO.

It's that last fella that's going to be part of the anniversary celebrations, but with a small twist. Ben Fester and Andy Webb have gone back2back and hug2hug at the last couple of Picnic birthday parties, and both times it's resulted in a cracker of a set. The two likeminded dudes with a love for all things jazzy have separately proven themselves time and again over the years, but when their powers combine it's a recipe for some next level partying. From smooth soul and white hot disco to rough and tumble house and well beyond, Eggs Benny + Bacon and Webbs promise to deliver a magnificent night of bloody good times.

So that's the score: FIVE YEARS of ONE NIGHT STAND with BEN FESTER and ANDY WEBB going ALL NIGHT LONG! 

They'll kick off at 9pm when the doors of Jam Gallery open, and the tunes flow through until closing time at 3am. Early Birds sold out, but $15 tickets are available now at RA.

PICNIC X VIVID WITH HUBERT CLARKE JR (LIVE)

It's with great excitement that we announce our first Picnic show that's part of the Vivid Sydney programme! For our contribution to what's clearly the most dazzlingly awesome festival in the world, we're bunkering down at Tatler on the Sunday of the June long weekend (June 12th) for an extra special Picnic Social with some pretty spectacular lights and music.

Headlining the show will be our outrageously talented pal HUBERT CLARKE JR who steps up for his first Picnic live set for the year. Since Al Dente, his bumping debut EP for 100% Silk, dropped back in February, Hubert has been copping attention from way beyond our borders. And rightly so - he's one of the most talented producers we've got!

To spice things up even more for the evening, we've come up with a trio of perfect DJ pairings:

ADI TOOHEY and ANDY GARVEY will be sharing their love for top-shelf house and disco with us, creating the ultimate FBi Radio super-duo!

JON WATTS and KALI, two of Sydney's sharpest musical minds from different sides of the tracks, merge to find an irresistibly groovy, gooey centre.

ANDY WEBB and EARL GREY, being the lovers of all things jazzy that they are, will take things to a very funky and very fun place for sure.

Mix it all together and you've got a pretty perfect Sunday night on your hands! As is always the case at the Social, it'll be FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT LONG.
