Picnic is back with dancefloor kingpin Dan De Caires, co-presenting THEE MOST AMAZING PARTY EVER - with 3 massive headliners, 2 massive sound systems and 2 levels of manthems, party jams and lovedanse for everyone at 202.
HORSE MEAT DISCO (Strut, UK)
Downstairs, it's with the return of HORSE MEAT DISCO and their resident DJs SEVERINO and FILTHY LUKA taking over the club level - helming the brand new FUNKTION ONE sound system and extensive acoustic treatment for the very first time, the pioneers of manthemic homo disco at London's most excellent party are back for the final leg of the tour supporting their chart-topping HORSE MEAT DISCO CD on STRUT.
Getting the sauna on will be Mad Racket's SIMON CALDWELL, Future Classic and Picnic residents THE LOIN BROTHERS, Loose Ends 8-hour specialist MATT VAUGHAN and alongside him, the legendary one-piece rocking super selector STEPHEN ALLKINS. It's a gay party, but it's a party for everyone - bringing back the downtown party network that valued openness and serious party jams for straight and bent alike. If you were at the last sold out HORSE MEAT DISCO/PICNIC double header, you know it's HEAT.
GREG WILSON (Electro Funk Roots, UK)
Upstairs in the PICNIC CARES! EMPORIUM is legendary UK disco/house/electro-funk pioneer GREG WILSON (Electro Funk Roots) from TIRK. Former Hacienda resident, former Wigan Pier resident, the first ever dj to be featured beatmixing on tv, helmer of the amazing credit to the edit compliations and a bona-fide party slammer, expect a 2 hour set from the man, the legend, the amazing Mr. Wilson - again on a brand new FUNKTION ONE sound system, with his trademark revox reel-to-reel and studio computer setup, remixing on the fly. The dude is a KING. He'll be unleashing tracks from his latest 12" releases too. Nice. Blow your mind? He's all over it.
GOLDEN BUG (Gomma, Bang Gang. Spain)
After the sun goes down, we're hosting the first ever live set at picnic - a late night set from Gomma's GOLDEN BUG - his fresh take on techno-funked-disco was one of best things we've heard over the last 4 years, and his 100% LIVE set will blow you away. Infectious, loopy, glitchy but funky as a motherfucker jams that artists like aeroplane, classixx and the presets have liberally lifted from. antoine is the sound of the future and the best of the past. HOT new releases on GOMMA, BANG GANG 12 INCHES and remixes for DELPHIC, WHO MADE WHO have been slammed by everyone from EROL ALKAN to PRINS THOMAS. he's a bit special... We are delighted to host his exclusive debut show in Australia.
In support, we've put together a lineup of the best deejays money can buy. nice!
MAGIC HAPPENS, SOFTWAR, PERFECT SNATCH, STEELE BONUS, SPRUCE LEE, MIRROR MIRROR and party liasons KALI, DAN CARES! & VIVI.
MIDDAY TIL MIDNIGHT
March 14th @ 202 Broadway
It's a jam for everyone. Expect short skirts, funk phenomenons, techno waves, probably a few crowdsurfs and massive amounts of bassssssssssssss.
202's been massively overhauled with massive amounts of comfy couches and a pretty special FUNKTION ONE going throughout the entire venue. It's a whole new world. Nice.
THIS IS IT!
