FREE EVENT @ The Landsdowne Hotel, Chippendale 2008
Purple Sneakers are back to celebrate their thirteenth birthday and another year of being #TrustedForTaste. This time, they team up with their good friends at creative music agency UNDR Ctrl to do it. Purple Sneakers has celebrated their birthday as an official part of Vivid Sydney for the past three years and are ready for another blast this year. Expect their trademark full venue takeover of the Lansdowne Hotel.
Purple Sneakers exists to showcase emerging club music from around Australia and the world. With an enthusiastic team of contributors from across the country, Purple Sneakers is the centre of a forward thinking, music loving community.
What started as a weekly party featuring emerging club music has since evolved. The Purple Sneakers team are committed to sharing the work of tasteful, young artists with the world, whether they’re talking about it on their radio show, writing about it on their website, playing it in their DJ sets or dancing to it at their parties.
Purple Sneakers hosted the first shows for the likes of Flume, Rüfüs (now Rüfüs du Sol), Alison Wonderland, Nina Las Vegas, Linda Marigliano, Disclosure and Flosstradamus and many more. Their previous Vivid Sydney birthday events have seen performances from the likes of Christopher Port, Ninajirachi, Willaris. K, World Champion & more, as well as help from their friends at I Oh You, Astral People, Heaps Gay, Stoney Roads and more to bring the party vibes.
