13 hours of power: Darkbeat’s 10th birthday party plans

Melbourne underground bastion Darkbeat is turning ten this year and naturally the celebration will be epic. On Sunday 9 June, Darkbeat is staging a 13-hour day/night party from 5pm till 6am. As the announcement from Darkbeat reads: “We would like to thank every single person who has been a part of the Darkbeat vibe over the last 10 years and we hope you can join us at a venue we have never utilised before – The Prince Of Wales.

“Joining us will also be a DJ we have sought after for many years, John Digweed. It feels almost full circle that John Digweed will finally get to play a Darkbeat event, and what better way than our 10th Birthday. As per usual we will have more surprises – stay tuned for a trip memory lane.”

Joining Digweed will be some of Darkbeat’s local heroes. Rollin Connection will go back to back with Darius Bassiray and two of Melbourne’s very best, Phil K and Anthony Pappa, will do their thing. Tickets are on sale now from Moshtix.

Over its ten years, Darkbeat has hosted a long list of talent from the worlds of house, techno, progressive and beyond. Sasha, Sven Vath and Derrick Carter are just a few of the headliners who’ve led the dancefloor at Darkbeat. Expect a huge celebration this June.
