Harbourlife announces set times
Thu 22nd Nov, 2012 Newsin
As if the first day of summer wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, Fuzzy’s sold-out Harbourlife is set to usher in the season next Saturday 1 December. With just one stage, looking out to the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, city skyline and Botanic Gardens, there’ll be no need for mad dashes around the site. Here’s the timetable so you know how the day’s set to run.
The afternoon will be warmed up consummately by Todd Terje and Harbourlife alumni Mark Farina, building from there to producer-of-the-moment Flume and a sunset set from Flight Facilities. In the closing slot is one of the most versatile duos in dance music, 2manydjs. If you’ve tuned into Radio Soulwax at any point over its run, you’ll know the Dewaele brothers are fine selectors.
Mark Farina last hit Harbourlife in 2005, and the warm memories have lasted. “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.”
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.”
