St Kilda's Pontoon raged its way into 2018 with a packed-out shindig starring The Avalanches. Now, the venue has announced its second major Summer Sounds event for the year. This day party will feature Melbourne-based acts Cut Copy and Total Giovanni, both in DJ mode, with support from Edd Fisher, Pjenne, Kate Miller and Nile Delta.
Electronica band Cut Copy broke through in 2008 with sophomore album In Ghost Colours and, in 2014, toured the Americas, Europe and Russia on the back of fourth album Free Your Mind. Meanwhile, five-piece Total Giovanni has been releasing its polyrhythmic, boogie-meets-disco-meets house tracks via local label Two Bright Lakes and bringing high-energy shows to a bunch of festivals and clubs Australia-over.
The music will kick off at midday and go on late into the night. The annual pride march is taking place on the same day, so gear up for a big party. To keep you fuelled, Pontoon's eight-metre grill will be on the go, serving up snacks and share plates, and you'll find 16 beers on tap at the bar.
