WOMADelaide Heat Up night in Melbourne

07 February 2010

What: WOMADelaide 2010 Heat-Up Party

When: 7:30pm-1am on Thursday, 11 February 2010

Horse Bazaar, 397 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne

This is the first ever official WOMADelaide Heat-Up Party in Melbourne, presenting the vibe of Australia’s Number 1 global festival with DJs, visual explosions, ticket and CD give-aways and much much more.

Saca La Mois DJ!! is representing Latin sounds, including Ojos de Brujo (Spain) and Nortec Collective (Mexico), who are both on the 2010 WOMADelaide line-up.  Beyond these seminal artists' releases, I'll be spinning a whole context of music coming out of Barcelona, Andalucia and Tijuana...

Showcasing giants and exciting newcomers of African music on this year’s line-up is Mr Fish, one of the world’s top Afro-DJs.  Mr Fish’s DJ set will include Ethiopiques (Ethiopia/France), Dub Colossus (Ethiopia/UK) and Melbourne’s massive 19-piece The Public Opinion Afrobeat Orchestra, who are all set to be highlights at this year’s festival in Adelaide.

Russian criminals Vulgargrad are also playing WOMADelaide 2010, and band member Andrew Tanner is making a rare appearance as DJ Vulgar Boatman, playing us from his extensive collection of Russian ballads and oompah-thumpers that inspired the formation of Vulgargrad.
Systa bb is the Producer and Presenter of The Good, The Dub, & The Global on RRR and as one of the original global innovators in Melbourne brings the Easter European goodness of Besh o droM, Babylon Circus, Nickodemus and others to the dancefloor.

There will be plenty of ticket and CD giveaways and this will be your first chance to buy 2010 festival merchandise. The newly-released Sounds of the Planet 2010 compilation CD will also be available on the night.

Get there early for doco film screening, early bird gifts and to avoid disappointment of not fitting in this intimate venue...
