Event information

The first Maximum Joy was Picnic's biggest undertaking by a long shot, bringing eight internationals and dozens of Aussie legends to all six rooms of the Kings Cross Hotel. A festival-sized offering that we'll always be proud to have pulled off, it was one very special day for Sydney.
