Big news, Sydney. The heroes of house music at Ministry of Sound will be hosting an outrageous party in Sydney next month to celebrate the EDM outfit’s three-decade stretch of good vibes and great tunes.
Called “Testament” and described as a “warehouse experience”, it will be taking over the sandstone hallways of the recently revived Campbell’s Stores buildings in The Rocks for the whole June long weekend.
It's happening as part of the all-new (and truly epic) Sydney Solstice festival, and the immersive multi-room party will run over three consecutive nights, with each night dedicated to a specific era of electronic music, and three big rooms to get your rave on.
If 90s house hits are your vibe (like C+C Music Factory’s Gonna Make You Sweat and Missing by Everything but the Girl), you’ll want to hit up Testament on Friday 11 June. Covering off 90s house, prog, trance, garage, and rave anthems, you’ll have Groove Terminator, John Course, Nick Law, and Simon Caldwell on decks in the house room; a garage room hosted by Garage Pressure, and a whole room dedicated to Sydney’s early 90s rave scene.
If the Ministry of Sound’s “The 2007 Annual” compilation is your all-time favourite (same), Saturday night will bring all the nostalgic noughties feels. Dive back into 2000s electro with Bag Raiders, Van She Tech, Jamie Doom of the Bang Gang DJs, and a DJ set from The Presets. Tonite Only, Goodwill, and John Course are heading up the house room, while Kid Kenobi, Poxymusic, and more will headline the breaks room.
Finally, Sunday night will be a showcase of the best dance and electronic sounds from today—including PNAU (just casually), Anna Lunoe, Yolanda Be Cool, and Kilter.
“I feel like this event is an amazing part of the great awakening of Sydney nightlife and the electronic music scene,” Tim McGee, CEO of TMRW Music and previously CEO of Ministry of Sound Australia said. Amen to that.
