Local tastemaking-tourers fünf launched their boutique party HOLEANDCORNER last June with a huge line-up of house and techno talent topped by the ever-evolving Matthew Dear, the emotive Henry Saiz and the always-fun Hot Chip DJs, taking over Melbourne’s Shed 14 (as well as a boat) and Sydney’s stalwart Home for two big dates.
Today, the festival announced that it’ll be back this year, taking over an as-yet-unnamed venue in Melbourne on Saturday 19 December (no word yet on whether it’ll return to Sydney) with a first release line-up of house and techno royalty, both local and international.
Detroit pioneer Moodymann heads the enviable line-up, accompanied by the amorphous Scuba, legendary Australian selector and disco re-edit don Late Nite Tuff Guy, Croatian techno powerhouse Petar Dundov, and fast-rising Melbournian house champion Tornado Wallace (whose sublime “tribal-deep stomper” Circadia ranked high on inthemix’s list of the 100 Greatest Australian Dance Tracks).
The venue is set to be announced on 4 November, although the organisers are promising “a new bespoke space that will be transformed into the type of visceral, otherworldly urban habitat that made last year’s party so special.” Tickets go on sale next Tuesday 27 October at the official website, and you can get more info at the Facebook page, or scroll down to check out the poster and line-up announce video.
