Maybe you lived through the 90s rave scene. Perhaps you spent every weekend enjoying club life in the 00s. Or, you might just wish you were old enough to have ticked both boxes. Ministry of Sound was around to see both, and now it's revisiting the experience — bringing back its massive Testament parties for another year, this time touring them around Australia over two weekends.

If cutting loose like you've travelled back in time is your ideal way to mark absolutely anything, then you'll want to make a date with Testament when it hits up Melbourne. For two nights across Saturday, August 12–Sunday, August 13, the event will have you making shapes to 90s and 00s bangers at The Timber Yard.

It's a choose-your-own-adventure type of affair, so fans of old-school tunes can hit up the session dedicated to 90s house, rave, trance and garage tracks, and lovers of 00s electro and breaks get their own shindig.

Leading the bill at the 90s party are Barbara Tucker, Inner City, Phil Hartnoll and Tall Paul, while The Bloody Beetroots, Digitalism, Freq Nasty and Stanton Warriors are their 00s counterparts.

On the Melbourne-specific leg of the national tour, Papa Smurf, John Course, Anthony Pappa, Jason Digby, Kasey Taylor, Mark Dynamix, Mark Pellegrini, Sean Quinn and Sgt Slick are also on the 90s bill. Fleshing out the 00s: Boogs, Dirty South, Orkestrated, Andee Van Damage, Bang Gang Deejays, Gab Oliver, John Course, Minx, Sunshine and T-Rek.
