A playful live event honouring the legendary suburban house party, featuring Hyper Global Hifi’s custom-built sound system and local DJs.
The idea of the suburban house party holds a special place in Australia’s cultural narrative—as does the backyard itself. The backyard is the home, extended: a site for informal hosting, variations of cultural gathering and, above all, a symbol of the “good life”.
As our suburbs change, our backyards do too. House Party is a celebration of music, movement and community that pays tribute to the traditional backyard, while also providing an opportunity to reflect on its position in Australia’s contemporary cultural milieu. A space for informal hosting, entertainment and events, House Party highlights how the backyard fills a void not always supported within traditional suburban or even urban infrastructure.
Custom-built sound system Hyper Global Hifi brings their big bass sound, setting the stage for a Saturday night ceremony of song, dance and civic assembly with a roster of local DJs and performances.The full lineup will be announced soon.
With free, community-sourced food and drinks also provided, House Party is an open invitation to all to be hosted in the backyard of this home turned temporary art project.
