Picnic presents Maximum Joy
Picnic Touring & Events are dizzy with pride to finally announce their first foray into the world of music festivals and as you may have guessed, Their not about starting small. Featuring the Australian debuts of the legendary Joe Claussell, Minimal Wave label boss Veronica Vasicka and some of the most impressive names from the Music From Memory camp, we invite you to join us for an EPIC one day dance; to feel, experience and get lost in Maximum Joy!
From down in the dive bar all the way up to the rooftop, they be invading the entirety of Kings Cross Hotel, right in the heart of the battleground for Sydney’s night life. With an army of the city’s premiere party institutions, record and fashion labels, Maximum Joy promises a first class offering of live electronic music, DJs, performance and installation.
“After ten years of running one of Sydney’s most loved underground dance parties - from warehouses to Sydney Opera House and literally everywhere good in-between - plus close to two years as the weekly entertainment booker at what has become a premier music destination, Harpoon Harry’s, Maximum Joy is the next logical step for Picnic.
With nine international acts, and over 25 local DJ’s and live acts plus a handful of Sydney’s (and the world’s) best promoters, record labels and fashion labels putting their unique stamp on a stage each - this epic one day dance is unlike anything that’s come before it.
Debut Australian performers from New York’s house god Joe Claussell and the queen of Minimal Wave Veronica Vasicka set the bar for the most intelligent, educational and confident one day event to hit our city
Right in the middle of the lock out dead zone, Kings Cross we set our sights set on your comfort on winters day in the cosy and rambling surrounds of the epic Kings Cross Hotel. Maximum Joy, by name and from July 1st - definitely by nature. “–
