It's also a strobe-free event, which we love to see.

As part of their service, they offer a music program that gives people an opportunity to continue their love of music and expand their musical talents. The OLC Music Collective are participants ... who have formed a band.

Free daytime outdoor party at The Factory! Two impeccably excellent local identities in Stoney Roads and Extra Spicy, putting on a selection of selectors. Jungle and Footwork. Go have a dance! As we've previously mentioned, we want to be able to surface what's happening with parties in Sydney - but it probably shouldn't go in the gig guide, and we're not quite sure how to the manage the curation of such a guide. Do you have any ideas? Let us know!
