Powerhouse Productions (UTOPIA) and Overdrive Australia (HARD WARS) proudly present Unity 2008 - The Revolution Saturday 6th December 2008 – 9pm to 6am Sydney Showground - Sydney Olympic Park 1 Showground Rd, Homebush Bay, NSW 2127 Featuring Scott Brown (UK) Brooklyn Bounce (GER) Al Storm (UK) MC Sharkey (UK) plus over 40 Australian acts across 4 Massive arenas A REVOLUTION IN PARTY PROMOTING If you have been to an all night event over the past 10 years, it would be a simple fact that you would have attended one of these parties. We’re talking about names like UTOPIA, HARD WARS, GODSPEED, HELTER SKELTER, PROPHECY, HYPERSPEED, MANIC and more. The two biggest, boldest and most creative party organisations - Powerhouse Productions (the creators of UTOPIA events) and Overdrive Australia (creators of HARD WARS) are teaming up with Masif, Fantasia and Anthems to create a totally immersive party environment. There can be only one way to describe what you are about to witness: Utopia, Hard Wars, Masif, Fantasia and Anthems together as one - UNITY 2008 – The Revolution. A REVOLUTION IN SIGHT AND SOUND Party technology has advanced over the last decade, with increased laser power and brightness, improvements in the turbo sound systems, and enhancements in the way the intelligent lighting systems are programmed and operated. Both Powerhouse and Overdrive have stayed at the very leading edge of this technology, utilising each advancement to help enhance and expand our total entertainment packages. As a punter you can expect a blinding array of party technology, spread across the biggest venues we have ever used. Video display screens as large as a family home, full colour and argon laser systems capable of taking the Death Star out of commission, intelligent and effect lighting so advanced it will dramatically alter your very perception. A REVOLUTION IN VENUE DESIGN Our chosen venues represent the largest venues of their kind that we have ever used. In total we’re talking about floor space the size of two football fields, a floor space capable of accommodating many thousands of people. We are using our years of advanced party knowledge to create enjoyable spaces for our patrons to dance, to chill, to go on rides and to have an absolutely amazing time. Also we have chosen these areas specifically so we can crank the sound. Our venues are positioned such that they are the furthest from the local community and as such they enable the sound system to be loud all night. We have worked tirelessly to make sure this event is LOUD AS HELL . . . . ALL NIGHT!

Special prizes will be awarded to the best and brightest dressed on the night! Prizes for best dressed will be issued at the door on arrival, winners of these prizes will get the chance to dance on the main stage in front of thousands of people. TICKETS If you would like to consider that separately Powerhouse and Overdrive have hosted sell-out events for the past 10 years, you would be right in thinking that teaming these two goliaths up would create one hell of a giant event. You could even consider this event to be EXTRA LARGE! So if you consider that, you should also factor in that UNITY 2008 will sell out, no question! We want to offer the best deal we can, and as usual we have early birds available for a mind-smackingly cheap $49. With a pioneering selection of Overseas and Homegrown talent, an absolute monster venue complex, the summer sun upon us and thousands of punters up for a party we can only suggest you get your ticket before they are all gone!!
