This is the festival you’ve been dreaming of all year – and one of the stages could be your backyard.
Dust off the fairy lights and crack out the Esky! This summer’s must-have drink Smirnoff Seltzer and Australia’s hottest duo Lime Cordiale are joining forces to kick-start vacay season and bring the festival feeling to backyards across the country, with Smirnoff Seltzer Party Yard on Saturday 19 December.
Beaming straight from Lime Cordiale’s house to yours, Smirnoff Seltzer Party Yard is hosted by Aussie DJ Anna Lunoe. She'll be welcoming music-lovers into Lime Cordiale’s humble abode and keeping the good vibes flowing with exclusive behind the scenes content in between sets.
If that’s not enough, Smirnoff Seltzer is giving you the opportunity to host one of the Party Yard festival stages at your place for you and five mates, with Touch Sensitive performing his set from your backyard or living room. To be in with a chance to party and share a Smirnoff Seltzer with the synth superstar, music lovers simply need to tell us three things you would bring to their Smirnoff #PartyYard.

Hailing from Sydney’s northern beaches, brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach of Lime Cordiale command legions of dedicated fans with their incredible live set.

Touch Sensitive is Australian producer, in-demand live performer and DJ Michael Di Francesco. He’s a treasured slashie for artists and audiences alike. Whether it’s remixing Rufus, collaborating with Flume or touring internationally with Flight Facilities, he’s become renowned as the man with an ear for hooks and impeccable taste. Touch Sensitive released his debut full-length album Visions in 2017 off the back of cult hit, ‘Pizza Guy' (which recently went gold in Australia). The track topped the Hype Machine charts and permeated music sites globally with a now signature palette of syncopated synthesisers and immediate hooks with over 20 million impressions globally.
Australian singer-songwriter, producer and multimedia artist Jaguar Jonze (aka Deena Lynch) is nothing short of a manifold visionary. Jaguar Jonze and its adjacent projects, the narrative illustration project Spectator Jonze and the gender-subverting photography project Dusky Jonze, are powerful ways in which Deena processes her most intimate vulnerabilities while empowering others to do the same. Deena's meticulously-realised work has earned her the partnerships with brands like Christian Louboutin, Reebok, BMW, Obey and Stüssy, and an abundance of press (FLAUNT, Line Of Best Fit, NME, VICE, Fashion Journal, Vogue Australia, Marie Claire Australia) praising her commitment to confronting social ills and breaking stigmas.
Deep in ILUKA’s music, you can hear the sound of a wild heart given the space to roam free. The Australian-born musician and singer-songwriter is of a breed you don’t often find anymore—that of the troubadour. Her music, built from the foundational elements of classic rock and beloved, worn-in soul, tells universal tales of hope and love, struggle and sacrifice, with a thoroughly modern lens; comforting and galvanising in equal measure, it is the kind of art that comes only as a result of a life well-lived, of a mind challenged and expanded by the lushest, farthest reaches of the world.
