Here’s one we’ve been wanting to do for absolutely ages. In August we’ll finally be realising our dream of having one of Sydney’s most supreme veterans take the reigns for the ultimate in Picnic prestige - it’s an all night set at one night stand with Phil Smart.

A bit of a godfather in the harbour city, Phil has been spinning since the late ‘80s, delighting dancers in clubs and bars, warehouses and car parks, fields and forests, basements and boats - pretty much anywhere you can set up some decks - for more than two fun filled decades. His long-standing residency at Tweekin, legendary co-promoted parties Sabotage, The Project and Jus Right, support slots for people like Michael Mayer, James Holden and Sven Vath, multiple appearances at festivals like the Big Day Out and Splendour in the Grass, and guest sets with dozens of the country’s top club institutions like Mad Racket and Honkytonks make for a seriously impressive domestic resume.

But his stellar reputation extends far beyond the borders of Sydney or Australia. Phil’s played everywhere from PS1 in NYC to Burning Man and all around Europe in clubs like Bedrock and E-Werk, and in the process it’s landed him a spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100 not once but twice. The labels he co-founded, Think and Thunk, released a bunch of early material from local champs like Infusion and Pocket, exposing the Aussie vibe to DJs around the world, while some of his own studio work has landed on imprints like Future Classic and EQ Recordings. And while Phil has kept a lower profile in recent years, now living up in Newcastle and hosting his monthly ColourSound night, he’s still a complete weapon behind the turntables and, on the odd occasion he does pop down to Sydney for a show it’s always a reminder of why he’s Australian club royalty.

So come on down to the Imperial Hotel and soak up Phil Smart’s first One Night Stand appearance - ALL NIGHT LONG. Learn from one of the very best this country's got and have a bloody big dance.
