Love it when you walk into a gig and you feel like you’ve just stumbled into your best mate’s lounge room during an impromptu party?
You get a sudden rush of excited energy, you feel comfortable, you know everyone (or you will by the end of the night), you’re familiar with all the secret stash spots, and the tunes are fan-fucking-tastic! But best of all- the vibe’s all Love because you’re surrounded by your people, the ones that really get you. That’s exactly the feeling we want to recapture in our Spaceport 2: RELAUNCH party!
For those that don’t know Spaceport One was a magical place that existed for a short time only in the far away industrial lands of Marrickville in 2012. The people that manifested this space into being were of a different breed. They loved music, art and human relationships above all else- considering them far more valuable than anything money could buy. When people entered this sacred space they felt as if they were part of a Community that cared. The artists felt so comfortable they would often give the best performance of their lives. Everyone was free to participate as much as they wanted as the night would invariably erupt into an all out no-fucks-given open mic freestyle session finale. I miss the place dearly.
But wait… could it be? Maybe if we really wanted it, we could recapture that energy! Spaceport 2 will be a fusion of the arts: sonic, visual, and tactile. It is Hip Hop focused but I think it goes without saying that Hip Hop itself dabbles into other genres at will. Hip Hop is wide reaching community with many different styles across Sydney, across Australia, and across the World. Yet in each of those styles is a point of commonality. We will strive to bring together like minded people who use Hip Hop to build communities, express their individuality and for positive social change. In other words: All are welcome (no dickheads).
