The 40-year-old Oxford Street institution that was the Midnight Shift will finally reopen this weekend under its new name: Universal. And it's launching onto the scene with a three-day party that climaxes at the Heaps Gay Shift Resurrection.

The massive blow-out is the wrap up party for Sydney Fringe Festival and will go down on Sunday, September 30, from 9.30pm–4am. It'll span the venue's two floors and feature over 30 multi-genre artists, including live music, DJ sets, drag performances and roaming artists.

Live musical acts include South Africa's Fortune Shumba and Sydney's own producer CLYPSO and electro-group FLORIAN, plus DJ sets by Love Deluxe, Rachel Maria Cox and Girlthing. There'll also be artistic and drag queen performances by the likes of Matthew Grant, Three Piece Feed, Trixxie Killder and Millie Sykes; pole dancing by David Aeon and FUR; and visuals by Xanthe Dobbie, Fresh Jams TV and Subvrt Magazine.

Universal will officially open this Friday, September 28, with the launch of its new monthly party FAB — featuring live performances, DJs and drag shows. And Saturday, September 29, will see the reveal of the venue's new weekly event Satori,​ which features artists, light projections, live music, drag and more.
