Picnic presents One Night Stand feat. Simon Caldwell, June 16
The twenty-first hour of the sixteenth day of the sixth month of the two thousand and twelfth year Anno Domini.

The second coming of Mister Simon Caldwell to One Night Stand. All night long.

12 months after his first all night Picnic jam, one of Sydney's true DJ masters returns to play for you once again, from the moment the doors open until the daylight kicks us out.

For two decades, Simon has been one of the city's - no, make that the country's - most respected performers and party makers, cementing himself as a beacon of consistency and quality in an industry where not many go the distance. He's been co-promoting Mad Racket, a true Sydney institution, for 13 years; he's been invited to record mixes for Resident Advisor and John Digweed's radio show Transitions; his gargantuan list of support slots is littered with names like Moodymann, Dixon, Derrick May, Andrew Weatherall and Theo Parrish; and every Monday night, thousands tune in to his radio show on FBi 94.5. That's a pretty bloody good résumé.

Bringing passion, knowledge, experience, creativity and GROOVE together into one man-sized package, we really couldn't think of anybody better than Simon Caldwell to commandeer this party the first time around, and man did he prove us right! It would have been foolish of us to just leave it there - and so, here we are. Round two.

We'll be dancing at an appropriately epic warehouse space, the awesome SUN STUDIOS, with the finest Funktion One sound system we can get our hands on. Our birthday throwdown there was absolutely mental and we know this will be no different. It'll be BYO, and we'll have a bar set up to keep your drinks cool and safe, so stock up and enjoy!

THE THEME is 'Birds of Paradise' - we'll be getting our tropical vibe on despite the mid-winter chill and we ask all of you to join us! Think non-June colourful thoughts!

Tickets are available from Resident Advisor and, after witnessing the pandemonium last time, we seriously suggest you don't sleep on them

That Transitions mix seems to have disappeared, so here's his Melbourne Deepcast set instead.



Only a couple of weeks left!

Simon has hooked us up with a snippet from the opening hours of last year's One Night Stand. If you weren't there, this is a taste of the magic that went down. If you were there, take a trip and reminisce! This is just AWESOME.

Ladies and gents,

Here's the procedure for the next few days. Follow this method and you will have a good life.

- Listen to Simon's mix from last year and get in the mood

- Grab cheap tickets from Resident Advisor while you still can

- Stock up on booze to bring along and store in the chilled safety of our manned bar

- Head out to Sun Studios and bring a warm coat - we'll have a cloak room for you, which is nice.

- Have a cheeky cigarette under our very dry, very stable marquee (non-smokers are advised to skip this step)

- Soak up Simon's spectacular grooves on the epic Turbosound rig, learn a thing or two about exotic birds from watching the wildlife docos being projected onto the huge white walls

- Have a tidy 6+ hour dance sesh, experience unparalleled natural euphoria

- Sleep all Sunday with a big grin on your gob

Happy days!

Last night was the first time I've been to a Picnic event, I don't think I've been to anything like that in Sydney before - it was a lot of fun!

Got there late in the night but holy shit, Simon was laying down some serious tunage.
I had some proper cheesy grin on my face.
