Season 5 of The Island LIVE is sadly coming to an end, but what an incredible 6 months it has been on Sydney Harbour as we’ve welcomed headliners from all over the world — including DJ Marky (Brazil) and Norman Jay MBE (UK), alongside homegrown heroes Hayden James, Dom Dolla, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Bag Raiders and Hot Dub Time Machine amongst many others.

For the hotly anticipated closing party on Easter Thursday 18th April, we continue the international trend to bring you German electronic connoisseurs Digitalism and one of our biggest bookings yet to The Island. Digitalism make dance music that everyone can rock to – that’s their tagline. Dipping into the electronica, dance and indie worlds, this beloved duo were pioneers of the late-2000s electro-clash era alongside the likes of Justice, MSTRKRFT, 2manydjs and The Presets. ‘Zdarlight’, ‘Pogo’, ‘Digitalism in Cairo’ and ‘Blitz’ are just a selection of cult tracks from previous albums – which have stood the test of time in music. Their latest EP, ‘Chapter 1’, pays homage to this era while providing a twist on the sound Digitalism are so well known for. This is their first show in Sydney for 3 years, complimented by a Sydney Harbour sunset and a once in a lifetime intimate club experience… we don’t expect tickets to hang around for long!

Joining Digitalism will be a returning Island LIVE fave, Sydney icon Simon Caldwell. Playing since the early 1990s, Simon’s best known for his genre-spanning DJ sets, his long-standing club night Mad Racket and his specialist weekly radio show, Monday Sunsets on FBi. Also on the bill is lush tune selector, Luen. She has been smashing through her own national headline tour lately as well as offering free DJ lessons to female identifying, non-binary and trans women. Having supported the likes of Peggy Gou, DJ Seinfeld and Honey Dijon recently, we can’t wait to pair her up with the crew for the closing party. Completing the line-up will be the Audiopaxx DJs – the crew behind Fiji’s exotic getaway festival Your Paradise and much more.
