Start shining your best pair of shape-throwing shoes and get ready to dance, dance, dance because Sydney's most energetic weekend of the year is back for round two. After an impressive Sydney debut last year, MoVement will again take over the city with epic warehouse parties, curated club nights and the best in dance and electronic music from October 19-23.
With an extra day up their sleeves this year, the city-wide festival (which is produced by V Energy Australia) will serve up five whole days and nights of sweet tunes and all-round awesomeness that celebrate some of Sydney's best and favourite dance party crews and artists. Like last year, the festival will be held at various locations around the city, meaning you can flit between vinyl swap meets, to secret parties and a whole slew of gigs in-between.
Headlining the festival is Mind Gamers — the new project from Sebastien Tellier, Daniel Stricker of the Midnight Juggernauts and John Kirby of Blood Orange — who will be performing for the very first time. Other highlights include a DJ set from Kristian Nairn (aka Hordor from Game of Thrones), and a spesh fifth birthday party for Astral People, which will include sets from Wave Racer, Baro, Polographia and others. Sydney's party crews will be throwing a few big ones as well, with Heaps Gay, FBi and House of Mince all throwing events.
Anyway, we know what you're here for. Here's the lineup.
