After the magic of their Portal event in December, Flow Music invites you to gather together once again on the dance floor for a night of festival alchemy.

Featuring some of Europe’s biggest and most respected names in the electronic music scene, Flow Music will be delivering the European festival scene to Australia and create that much-loved vibe again at the Byron Bay Community Centre.

The theatre will be transformed into a festival wonderland, with pre-show entertainment from 6pm, including body and face painting by donation, incredible dancers from Epic Creations, lighting by Tone from Crystal Grid and decor by Bare Foot Beat.

Leading the musical charge will be melodic maverick Seth Schwarz who will be bringing his mighty bangers of symphonic dimensions to town. Seth incorporates elements of house, techno and electronica, while improvising with his violin for an emotional imprint, creating a unique signature on the virtual world of sound. His powerful productions have been moving dance floor communities across the world.

Fellow German, Franca, is set to heat things up with energetic, creative and groove-driven DJ sets. Playing on the fringes of techno and house, she is as tight on the controls as she is playful in her storytelling. Franca’s devoted approach to her work cannot only be heard in her continuing development as a DJ but also in her rising qualities as a producer.

We also welcome Dutch native, Joep Mencke, whose deep and melodious tracks, intertwined with organic sounds of nature, create a compelling and explorative experience. His sets at Burning Man, The Gardens of Babylon, Moga Festival and Afrikaburn, alongside his club residency at KUN in Istanbul, epitomise how his music radiates happiness, bringing people together across the globe. 

Melbourne-cum-Amsterdam local, Deep Ghosh, is no stranger to expressing himself in the global music world, with selections of unabashed love of emotional, vocal melodies juxtaposed with the deeper end of the sonic spectrum. Deep is one of the curators of the Flow Sessions long-format mix series.

Flow Music is so excited to bring these headliners to Byron on the last stop of their Australian journey, which started at the wonder-filled Festival 23, then travelled south to move audiences in Sydney and Melbourne.

Music connects us all, from Europe to Australia to Indonesia, and back again. So let’s come a little closer to each other and set our souls alight as one on the dance floor.

Saturday, 6.30pm at the Byron Theatre. Tickets: byroncentre.com.au.

Nearly ten years ago in 2015, junior coal seam gas miner Metgasco was paid out handsomely – $25m of your tax money – after its approval to frack Bentley was fiercely fought off by thousands of well-organised protesters. But now they are back...
