Now in its third consecutive year of touring, Classical has cemented its position as Australia’s most sought-after retrospective dance music event, having thrilled over 35,000 people across Australia and New Zealand in 2023.
An all-out celebration of dance music, Classical taps into every clubber’s core memories, reliving golden dancefloor moments that have brought so much joy over the decades. With audiences demanding more shows and overwhelming positive feedback, Classical’s Sydney show will once again expand to an all-day festival format at the centrally located Entertainment Quarter. From 2-10pm across two stages the afternoon will be stacked with incredible DJs and live acts, culminating in a headline performance from The Ministry of Sound Orchestra alongside DJ Goodwill and conductor Vanessa Perica.
From 2pm, the stages are stacked with a stunning selection of local and international DJ talent who will be playing the tunes everyone knows and loves – the main stage will feature Mr Good Times himself, Norman Jay MBE, Sydney’s most loved live act Sneaky Sound System along with Sgt Slick, Groove City, Kid Kenobi & MC Shureshock and Kate Monroe. Over on the fan favourite Golden Stage expect to hear a showcase of the best of 90s rave headlined by international superstar Darude, along with Mark Dynamix, Jumping Jack, Abel and Jade.
Along with this, this year also sees the launch of the Ministry Disco Bowlo – what a Sydney way to spend a sunny afternoon that on the green! The event also offers a VIP Village with private bars and toilets, the Kraken Spiced Rum Bar and food trucks.
