Sydney’s wildest club night is calling it quits
After 12 years of throwing Sydney’s wildest parties, beloved club night Starfvckers will officially pull the plug on their weekly bashes later this month.
The co-founders of the legendary brand, Disorder and Hookie, made the announcement on Facebook yesterday, writing that although it definitely isn’t the end of the Starfvckers, it is the end of the regular weekly parties.
“Starfvckers Club has always been greater than the sum of its parts,” wrote the guys. “We’ve been fortunate to watch the Australian music scene grow with us, and some of world’s prolific pioneers of dance music lay paint on the canvas of our creation. It’s time now for a new and exciting era in the Starfvckers Club legacy.”
“Although patrons will be experiencing fewer events, they won’t be seeing any less of Starfvckers Club. We believe that focussing on special events will give us the breathing space to ensure they are even grander than those they will surpass. Much loved brands such as Grave Rave, Pardi Gras, MasqueRave, Animalia, UV Rave and countless others will continue to weave into the fabric of the Australian club Scene.”
Kicking off back in 2006, Starfvckers ran for eight years at the infamous Club 77 before moving to Tunnel in Kings Cross and finally settling at the Home Rooftop in January last year. In that time they garnered a rep for some of the best and loosest parties around, and have played host to just about every dance act in the country.
They’ll be going out with bang (of course) by throwing a massive ‘The End (…Of The Beginning)’ party on Saturday April 14, which will feature a stack of residents dating back to Club 77 days.
“We wanted to take the opportunity to invite back our past weekly residents (from the moment of conception to this point of transition), and showcase our colourful history for one night only,” Starfvckers wrote. “From our humble beginnings at Club 77 back in 2006, to the neon lights of our new found place of worship at Home Rooftop, the past is just our history, but the future holds our fate.”
Keep across all the event details here. Get down there and witness the end of an era.
