Sydney’s floating Friday party adds a big name this week

If you want to party on Sydney Harbour this summer, then you’ll need to secure tickets to monthly party series The Island LIVE on the Harbour’s floating pontoon bar. The parties kicked off last month with the Aston Shuffle, and as the aftermovie below demonstrates, it was good times for all involved.

This week, The Island LIVE is back, with the second party taking over The Island this Friday 6 November, headed by Melbournian house auteur Roland Tings plus party animals Kato and CC:Disco in support; and the organisers have just announced that this month’s “special guest” is Brisbane’s finest fast-rising house gun Young Franco.

Young Franco is going from strength to strength this year, stacking up back-to-back shows around the country in support of his latest single Don’t U Want Me, while headliner Tings continues his phenomenal 2015 – his eponymous debut album was named triple j’s Album of the Week when it was released at the start of the year, and highlight Devotion landed in the number two position of our list of the Best 50 Tracks of the Year…So Far.

Tickets for this Friday’s edition of The Island LIVE are on sale now from $79.25, including a return water taxi from Double Bay and two free drinks. Head over here for tickets, or hit the website or Facebook event page for more info.
