We love that Sydney has come alive again with so many amazing music and cultural events popping up. We went to this gig many years ago & totally loved it. Tonight, we will be laying down FUNK & DISCO at the JURASSIC LOUNGE: Heroes’ after-hours party happening at the Australian Museum for VIVID SYDNEY. Come say hello if you heading down.
The museum’s galleries will be open, and there will be music, art, & culture including specimen drawing classes with scientific illustrator Celia Curtis, The Space Cowboy’s traveling animal exhibit, see a T-Rex autopsy with a twist, led by Improv Theatre Sydney. Plus artist Alli Sebastian Wolf’s ‘Deep Sea Astronauts’ critter creations will be roving throughout the museum all night.

The city’s finest selectors and spinners unite to create their living-breathing discovery playlist. Spanning early trailblazers and club icons to future tastemakers and warehouse agitators, The Goods Line DJs share their broad palate of tunes as an electrifying soundtrack to your Vivid Sydney experience.
Hear it LIVE from The Goods Line Stage, running nightly from 6pm-10:30pm for the duration of the festival.

It is also screening 11th, and 12th of June at Newtown & Casula.
Two remarkable female performers train for Australia’s biggest street dance competition in this tale of love, obsession and the transformative power of performance.
On Sydney’s urban fringe, two young women battle for a better life in the underground world of competitive street dance. Patricia, Romanian-born and hanging out for a visa, is a breakdancer. Gabi, of Chilean-Samoan heritage, pops with power. Both dream of escaping the rough hand they’ve been dealt. Will a win at Australia’s biggest dance competition Destructive Steps – in which 60 contestants compete in the preliminary rounds – be their golden ticket? Or will the external pressures of financial hardship and volatile relationships stop them from even reaching the dancefloor? Director Luke Cornish spent seven years filming the women’s progress. Waiting to see how they fare will have you on the edge of your seat.
Celebrate the film with an event at The Hub: Keep Stepping: Break Out featuring a showcase of street dancing, complete with MC and DJ on Friday 10 Jun at 8pm.
