Following the colossal success of Untitled Group’s inaugural Virtual Day Party, which saw more than half a million households tune in globally, Untitled Group have just announced a second edition featuring Hayden James, DJ Boring, Lastlings, Made in Paris, Cassettes For Kids and Adult Art Club.
Stepping it up a notch this time, Untitled Group have carefully curated a unique showcase of notable Australian landmarks. The first is the beautifully historic Old Melbourne Gaol, place of demise for infamous Australian criminal Ned Kelly, now given new life as the backdrop for some of our most exciting young talents. Up next is the scenic abandoned artillery, Henry Head Battery, with headliner Hayden James performing a special cliff-edge sunset set with sprawling ocean views. Last, but very not least is the monumental 8400sqm Avalon Airport Hangar which will be fully kitted out with Untitled’s signature expanse of impressive lighting and production.
While Untitled Group has chosen to make the Virtual Day Party a free stream available to all, the same production expenses apply that would for a traditional Untitled day party. Untitled Group’s aim is to keep live music alive and continue to provide these amazing opportunities for artists & fans alike, however it is not sustainable. When watching the stream there will be an optional link to support the stream or you can contribute here.
The Virtual Day Party will take place on Saturday 30th of May and can be streamed via Untitled Group’s Facebook page. Sign up here to go into the draw to win a Season Pass to all Untitled events for 1 year + a Virtual Meet & Greet with an artist on the lineup, a $1,000 Lee Jeans Wardrobe, a Jimmy Brings Alcohol Delivery voucher, a Grill’d voucher, JBL speakers and headphones and limited edition merchandise.
Untitled presents Virtual Day Party #2
Made in Paris
Cassettes For Kids
Adult Art Club
It took award-winning music producer Hayden James one song to become a sound of the Australian summer. ‘Something About You’, released in the heat of December 2014 by Future Classic, lit up the pop music scene and gained Gold Certification in Australia. Today the artist’s electronic pop music has hooked a global audience on his sound, with a collection that has amassed over half a billion streams.
Following the release of ‘Something About You’, Hayden James played sold out venues world-wide while producing tracks for Katy Perry. October 2017 marked the release of ‘Numb’ featuring GRAACE, which scored Platinum certification in Australia and landed at #32 on Triple J’s Hottest 100.
Hit singles “Better Together” featuring Running Touch and ‘Just Friends’ featuring singer Boy Matthews sealed 2018 as Hayden James’ break out year, leading into his long-awaited debut album ‘Between Us’ in June 2019 cemented Hayden as one of Australia’s most influential pop producers, leading to an ARIA Nomination for Best Male Artist.
Following a stand-out set at Untitled Group’s Pitch Music & Arts earlier this year and having one of the most watched Boiler Room’s of 2019, DJ Boring joins the Virtual Day Party lineup being filmed from the Avalon Airport Hangar. DJ BORING aka Tristan Hallis could be the most ironically named performer today: energetic journeys into forgotten gems and future classics, nothing about what he does is boring.
In 2018, the mystique surrounding Lastlings expanded as their live show caught the attention of Australian electronic heavyweights RÜFÜS DU SOL, signing the duo to their newly founded label Rose Avenue Records, and welcoming three substantial singles that included ‘Deja Vu’, ‘I’ve Got You’ and ‘Last Breath’. Previously selling out Australian headline tours, supporting the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and RÜFÜS DU SOL, while earning spots on esteemed music events; Coachella’s DoLaB and Splendour In The Grass and Beyond The Valley, Amy and Josh are no strangers to the world’s biggest stages.
Made in Paris
Closing 2019 with her most anticipated single ‘Pursuit’, Made in Paris has dominated radio with full rotation and 100+ spins on Triple J, taking top 30 positions weekly on the Australian Shazam Chart and adds to Spotify editorial playlists globally. From her three USA tours to Australia’s most acclaimed warehouses alongside Stephan Bodzin on his 2019 Australian tour, Pitch Music Festival, Beyond The Valley and Splendour In The Grass, the Sydney artist depicts a true deep and dark production journey from studio to stage. Paris has entrapped enthusiasts within the industry from Maceo Plex and Township Rebellion to Joseph Capriati’s techno allure, with a globally acclaimed Mixmag, BBC Radio 1 and her most recent Triple J Mix Up Residency, making her a solid staple.
Cassettes For Kids
Cassettes for Kid’s trademark blend of high energy house, breaks has seen a swift trajectory to the forefront of local dance music. He’s already dominated festival stages at Pitch Music and Arts, Strawberry Fields, Lost Paradise, Duke Street Block Party as well as headlining Australia’s best clubs – XE54, Universal & more. An extremely trusted selector, he has warmed dancefloors for the likes of Denis Sulta, DJ Koze, KiNK, Black Loops, ANNA, John Talabot and many more.
Adult Art Club
Mysterious Australian duo Adult Art Club have been teasing local experimental electro dance fans with some rare gems released sporadically over the past few years. Low slung, sinister vibes, soul shifting drops and crunchy samples bring an earthy vibe to the floor, with earth shaking lows and psychedelic highs, this duo are like manna from heaven for the more adventurous dance floor dwellers around the country. A treat for this year’s Beyond The Valley, Adult Art Club will have the sold out masses vibrating hard to their dank minimalism.
