Ferdydurke Turns 6
Celebrate this laneway bar's sixth birthday with a night of light shows, installations and live tunes.
It's hard to believe it's been a whole six years since Ferdydurke first opened its doors. What's easier to wrap your head around is that the much-loved laneway bar is celebrating the occasion with a free birthday party of rather hefty proportions.
On Thursday, August 8, the loft-style venue invites you to help blow out some candles as it treats your senses to a giant serve of live tunes, visual art and dazzling installations. Kicking things off from 6pm, right through until 3am, is a lineup packed full of favourites. Locally based light artist Simbiotic Vision will be reworking the venue in its entirety, all two levels, with a sprawling interactive light show installation embracing the night's theme of 'funk futurism'.
On the decks and mic, you'll catch the likes of acclaimed hip hop artist and producer IJALE, PBS FM's Mz Rizk, DJ Spell, Kye, Pietro and Walla C.
And to match, there'll be a special cocktail offering by the spiced rum experts at Baron Samedi, alongside a craft beer showcase from Victoria brewery Dainton.
