The 2012 return of Harbourlife looks set for a swift sell-out. Earlier this week, the pre-sale sold out in 30 minutes, which means 50% of capacity was claimed. The public on-sale goes live at midday, today, Thursday 23 August via It’s strictly limited to five tickets per person.

Situated at the Fleet Steps, Mrs Macquaries Point, on the first day of summer, Harbourlife comes with an iconic view of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, city skyline and Botanic Gardens. There’s also set to be a soundtrack worthy of the spectacular outlook, with one of the most versatile duos in dance music, 2manydjs, in the headline spot. Also on the bill to bring the house is Mark Farina, who last hit Harbourlife in 2005.

“Whenever I see even the briefest image of the iconic Opera House or Harbour Bridge anywhere I am in the world, I instantly remember playing in such a beautiful location, to such a warm and wonderful crowd that understands proper electronic music,” Farina says. “Harbourlife set the bar for quality very high, even before many other events ever existed. Proud to be returning.” Then there’s the added bonus of Todd Terje, Flight Facilities, Flume and the Adana Twins.

Fuzzy director John Wall has plenty of enthusiasm about how the party’s going to play out this time. “It’s always been an honour to be able to hold a party in such a special, spectacular location and we’re excited as hell to be returning there this year with a swag of phenomenal DJs to play what I think is the perfect music for the first day of summer by the harbour: starting warm, deep and housey then building to a crescendo after night falls with the cut-up madness of 2manydjs.”
