With four glorious days off work, the Easter long weekend can go one of two ways. Some of us use it as an opportunity to get out-of-town for a relaxing weekend away, devoid of the hustle and bustle of day-to-day in Sydney. Others? We dive headfirst into what this city has to offer, partying each night away knowing there’s a few extra days to recover before you return to work.
Marly Bar is facilitating the latter with a huge four-day program of parties taking over the venue. The whole thing kicks off with two events on the Thursday. There’s Breko’s popular Music Bingo featuring DJ sets, prizes and free drinks for those that can flex their musical knowledge; and theres Reverb, a new weekly techno and house night taking over Marly’s underground dance floor Tokyo Sing Song.
Elsewhere across the weekend you’ll find free live sets from Lady King and Ange on the Friday, two stacked hip-hop lineups, a late-night dance party from the Picnic crew, and a full venue takeover on Easter Sunday featuring some of Sydney’s most exciting up-and-coming musicians and DJs.
Hip-hop fans are spoilt for choice on Saturday, with influential group Bodega Collective popping up with their Pass the Mic series downstairs, a the team behind Parramatta Nights curating a lineup of western Sydney hip-hop upstairs featuring breakout drill star Kahukx alongside Big Skeez, Lil Spacely, Shely210 and many more.
Many of the events are free, with tickets Picnic’s One Night Stand and the Easter Sunday party available online.
