It’s the last Nudge of Season 8, and 1 June is the date!

It’s wrapping up with a grand finale line-up of DJs and performance talent, and they can’t wait!

Get yourself ready for the party of the year as Billinudgel Hotel lights up one last time before Season 9 is back in the Nudge shed on 7 September.

Join Nudge Nudge Wink Wink: The Ultimate Party with a Conscience, an award-winning community event renowned for its extraordinary, carefully curated musical line-up. This event is more than just a party – it’s a fundraiser for the Winter Warmer homelessness relief campaign, dedicated to providing extra warmth and support to those sleeping rough in Byron and Tweed shires this winter.

Playing diverse sets throughout the Northern Rivers at regular gigs and residencies across the region, Rob is a talented mix-master of deep melodic house and techno. Poised to take you on a tune trip, sharing his deep-held passion for music and dance. This is Rob’s second time playing in the shed of Nudge, and we can’t wait to see your prance.

Making his shed debut is DJ Whitti. Captivated by the sounds of the Chicago and New York masters of house, simplicity, vocals, and a sexy baseline are what Whitti’s all about. Originally from Canada, Whitti has been mixing for the last five years, diving headfirst into the scene with gigs in Central America, Japan, and Canada, and is now based in the Northern Rivers. Whitti plays regularly at venues around Byron.

The Hoodlum Ballet, the fierce, passionate, and irresistible dance crew of renegade ballerinas and circus freaks is back to captivate and elevate. Inspiring others to find healing through movement, they share their gift of dance with the world. Each performance is crafted with love and intention, weaving magic into every space they transform. The Hoodlum Ballet performances will transform the band stage.

Co-captains of auditory communication, Cunning Stunts resident DJs Lord Sut and Dale Stephen are known to curate selections fuelled with house, Balearic, and disco, always guaranteed to make you gyrate, this is one event you won’t want to miss!

This event is on this Saturday at 4pm at the Billinudgel Hotel. www.eventbrite.com.au
