About the Block-Party Picnic Movement
In the name of spreading REAL MUSIC! SOUL OF SYDNEY, OUR HOUSE SYDNEY & TONE have teamed up to put forward a small number of hush-hush out door POP UP street & park-side throw-downs during summer.
The idea is a series of free Pop-UP Sunday afternoon family friendly Picnic’s in various outdoor locations around this beautiful city, featuring rotating sets from local DJ’s & Artists still flying the flag for quality music in Sydney.
If you like the idea of hearing everything from James Brown, Jocelyn Brown, Erykah Badu, De La Soul, Dilla & Masters At Work & Frankie Knuckles in an outdoor location where you can have a Sunday Picnic in the sunshine, then join us as we celebrate the gift of great music, in a relaxed environment with friends and al-fresco on picnic blankets!

NOTE: If you haven’t sent you for mobile number can you please forward to firstname.lastname@example.org in the event we do have to move the party last minute?
A Few points that might help you organise you day better;
- It is a FAMILY FRIENDLY PICNIC first and foremost so might be a good idea really to pack for a Sunday Picnic in the park (eski/ picnic basket, fruit, drinks and something to sit on etc.)
- We have a spot with a stack of grass around with plenty of room for kids, it is 5 mins from city around Alexandria, there is shade but best people bring some hats etc.
- We will have a Sound System with selectors playing an eclectic mix of real music including everything from Sade to James Brown to De La Soul, Erykah Badu & Masters At Work, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles.
- It is open decks with rotating DJ’s (but best people get in touch via email@example.com if keen to play to confirm time slots)
- We usually aim to get everything starting at about 12pm with ending time around depending on vibe.
- We will be waiting for the weather forecast before we make the call as it is outdoors, if it does look like it’s going to rain then we will simply move till next sunny Sunday. (We will be in touch a few days out for the event via email & on the day via SMS in case we have to move the party, so we will need your Mobile details too so we can get location details quicker)
- ARTIST CALL OUT: If you are a local Musician, MC, Singer, Percussionist or DJ then we are very keen to hear from you if you would like to play, especially if you down to play percussion along the Djs in an open jam vibe for Sunday. (we are hoping to get thing going as a regular Sunday afternoon local soul funk and hip hop open jam session so if your keen to be part of it let us know)
- For local Soul music fan then we simply wants you there enjoying the music, so get a group of friends together, spread the word and come down for a day out it the park to some real music.
Thanks again for getting behind the idea kids.. Sydney definitely needs more people like YOU!
Pray for good weather & hope to see you all at the next one.
Soul of Sydney and Co.
