Darkbeat celebrates 10 years of being at the forefront of Melbourne’s underground on Sunday June 9. It’s no surprise Darkbeat has gone on to position itself as Australia’s foremost underground dance music club promoter and tastemaker, having toured and hosted the world’s most leading and sought after acts such as Sasha, Sven Vath, Derrick Carter, Claude Vonstroke, Stanton Warriors, Loco Dice, Pendulum, Seth Troxler, J00F, Adam Beyer, & Steve Lawler just to name a very small few. Darkbeat’s loyal followers know that anything with the Darkbeat brand on it is a seal of quality and approval that they can trust and over the last 10 years they have seen hundreds and thousands of underground music lovers attend their events. Of late, their association with the national festival brands like Stereosonic (Australia’s biggest festival) and Summadayze (Australia’s biggest New Year’s Day festival) has seen their profile skyrocket even further, plus hosting club shows anywhere and everywhere across the country.
We would like to thank every single person who has been apart of the Darkbeat vibe over the last 10 years and we hope you can join us at and celebrate the very special occasion at a venue we have never utilised before – The Prince Of Wales, joining us will also be a DJ we have sought after for many years – Mr John Digweed (UK) [Bedrock]. It feels almost full circle that John Digweed will finally get to play a Darkbeat event and what better way than our 10th Birthday!
Alongside John Digweed, we have one of our Darkbeat’s longest standing favourite Djs joining this huge occasion to help celebrate our turning the big 1-0 in true style. So we are pleased to announce the addition of the Australian legend, Mr Anthony Pappa. After all of the highlights he has given us over our 10 years as Darkbeat we feel it’s the perfect fit that he finally graces his presents for his first appearance at one of our official Darkbeat Birthday Party show.
As per usual we will have more specials surprises coming, so stay tuned and watch this space for a trip memory lane.
For the first surprise we can announce.
After 2 years Darius Bassiray & Rollin Connection (aka Daniel Banko) will be playing back to back warming up for John Digweed once again under the ‘former / original’ Rollin Connection guise bringing it in proper birthday fashion! – (This will be the first time playing back together again in just on 2 years and plan on bringing something very special for this huge occasion)
This is a day / night party which starts at 5pm & we are kicking off the madness from the get go so we advise you arrive early .
