Tickets on sale @ 9am on Thursday
Tickets available here:

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.

Special thanks to our partners Canadian Club and Chandon S.

Announcing The Island LIVE - March 29


Here we go… on Friday 29th March we present the penultimate Island LIVE event of the series, pulling out all stops to bring you a line-up of the finest disco kings and queens to keep you dancing as the sun goes down on Sydney Harbour.

With a career spanning over 30 years, we’re thrilled to welcome back prolific Aussie export and one of our all-time favourite guests Late Nite Tuff Guy. LNTG is the scandalous alter-ego of HMC aka ‘The Godfather of Australian Techno’. As LNTG, he peddles the most credible of disco-edits, creating classics in their own right. His original ‘I Get Deeper’ remains an absolute stalwart anthem, sounding as fresh today as it did on its release in 2007. He’s recently dropped official international remixes for New Order and Herb Alpert and there’s rumours of an original album. Having given us such a special sold out night back in 2016 we cannot wait to welcome the disco don back to the Harbour.


Joining LNTG will be an act we’ve wanted to book for years, please welcome Total Giovanni in DJ mode. Fresh from releasing their stunning debut record ‘Euphoria’ at the end of last year, the band have been touring none-stop since. The Melbourne stars have amassed a cult following through the release of seminal classic tracks ‘Can’t Control My Love’, ‘When We Break’, ‘Comes in Waves’ and ‘Your Light’ and lining them up to play alongside LNTG is like a dream come true!

The Island LIVE resident Lex Deluxe is back on deck duty following recent appearances at Falls Festival and Lost Paradise and she’ll be joined by rising star and creative force Ayebatonaye. Be sure to check out her FBi Radio podcast ‘Don’t @ Me’ and her DJ workshop/showcase program ‘Irregular Fit’.

Tickets go on sale @ 9am tomorrow
