FBi Radio has been on air for two decades now. The beloved Sydney community radio station has been spotlighting the best of Sydney's music, arts and culture since 2003 — and, in celebration, it's throwing a huge Marrickville block party.

The part-music festival, part-station fundraiser will take over two bustling Inner West venues and the alleyway between them on Saturday, December 9. A 30-strong lineup of musicians, performers and DJs will be popping up at the Marrickville Bowlo, The Red Rattler and the outdoor stage, with a blockbuster program spanning pop, hip hop, punk, R&B and dance music.

Leading the lineup is a pair of reunions. Hoops, the DJ project of trio Anna Lunoe, Bad Ezzy and Nina Las Vegas, is getting back together for the party, throwing things back to their storied sets at Sydney clubs of yesteryear like Goodgod Small Club.

And, hip hop fans will be delighted to see Western Sydney duo and FBi Radio royalty Slim Set reunite for a special Slim Set + Friends performance.

Some of the other names you may recognise on the lineup include 1300, Milan Ring, Party Dozen, Ninajirachi, Babitha, Marcus Whale and Becca Hatch. Plus, if you're looking to catch the next big thing, this is your chance.

Dust, Friday*, Juice Webster, Teether and Zion Garcia have all released stellar projects this year, and will all hit the stage at the FBi Turns 20 Fundraiser and Block Party.

Rounding out the lineup is a selection of some of the city's top tastemakers. If you missed out on Boiler Room tickets (or you went along and want to back things up), you can catch the likes of Simon Caldwell, Isa, Crescendoll and Johnny Lieu on the decks.
