Canberra, you’re getting a daytime techno party—on a Sunday

Posted on

Not a night owl but love a good party? Have we got the event for you.

Canberra’s annual arts festival Art, Not Apart is bringing its epic techno and electronic party tech-yes back for 2020—with a twist.

Having traditionally taken place after the festival’s official afterparty, Sound & Fury (yes, it was the after after party) with eye-wateringly late finishing times, tech-yes will now run from 2–10 pm on Sunday 15 March.

That’s right. It’s Canberra’s first Sunday arvo techno party which—according to organisers—is the perfect time to “revel and release”. But instead of the usual Netflix and a face mask, tech-yes will be serving up a large slice of cutting-edge techno and electronica. Oh, and did we mention drinks by Bar Rochford?

Over the years the crew behind tech-yes, Escape Ferocity, has hosted a who’s-who of the international electronica and techno scene, including Boris Brejcha, Eelke Kleijn, Bebetta, Victor Ruiz and Extrawelt. This time around, the party will focus on local and national talent.

What will be changing, however, is the venue. Instead of a warehouse, this year’s tech-yes will take place in the historic surrounds of Yarralumla’s Albert Hall.

While a techno party might be a bit of a change from Albert Hall’s recent music events (think: Play School Live! and classical concerts), perhaps this is a fitting way to celebrate Canberra’s first concert hall. Not to mention the fact that many iconic European electronica events are housed within buildings of a similar era.

In fact, tech-yes will be the third Art, Not Apart 2020 event to take place in Albert Hall, with the festival expanding beyond NewActon in celebration of its 10th anniversary.

On Friday 13 March the iconic Hall will host Melting Pot (a jazz and projections “experience”) and on Saturday, after the main festival in NewActon, performance art party Sound and Fury.

While organisers are staying tight-lipped about what state-of-the-art production we can expect, or even who will be performing at this daytime soiree, there’s no doubt from their track record that this will certainly be a “party to tell the grandkids about”.

With a bar run by celebrated booze slingers Bar Rochford, it sounds like Sunday 15 March will be time to pop Netflix on pause.
