HAAi at Space is The Place

Space is the Place is committed to bringing some of the world’s most forward-thinking electronic artists and DJs to an accessible space for all to celebrate this summer.

Experience quality dance music on a quality sound system with a constellation of mirror balls and world-class lighting. January has already seen DJ Boring, Shanti Celeste, CC:DISCO!, DJ Seinfeld, and Pachyman blow minds.

Coming up this Friday night, 27 January, they present Australian-born, UK-based HAAi, supported by First Nations Meeanjin-based artist Dameeeela. Friday, 3 February, UK-based Ross From Friends will be performing live before he joins Fred Again for the Laneway lineup.

Upcoming dates include: Saturday 18 February, Saturday 3 March, and Friday 17 March. They still have Four Tet, Ben UFO and some very special guests yet to come, including support from locals Central Sonics, Jai Piccone and Jono Ma. 

Sets start at 7pm. Note: the Beach Hotel has a 20 per cent discount on all drinks for local residents. Just show ID with a local postcode.
