Unpacking what is an epic lineup.

The Living Room Festival is set to take over The Timber Yard in Port Melbourne for the first time on Saturday November 9. With the likes of Acid Pauli, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Jeremy Underground taking to the stage, the guys at Novel have prepared a world-class lineup you can’t afford to miss. If you’re not across the bill, not to worry, we’ve broken down all the big names set to appear.

Acid Pauli

For the first time in over four years, Germany’s Acid Pauli returns to Melbourne just for The Living Room. The renowned producer has been in the electronic music game for over 20 years in various projects such as Console and The Notwist, allowing him to refine his sound into what it is today.

He’s on at 10:30pm.

Jeremy Underground

Born out of a love for collecting records, Jeremy Underground has created a signature blend of house, disco, soul and funk to bless your ears. The French resident is coming to the festival for a Victoria exclusive, following a massive year of touring across Europe. It’s all about selection not production for this wunderkind – check out the below B2B set with fellow Living Roomer Motor City Drum Ensemble to get a sense of what’s coming.

JU takes to stage at 5pm.

Motor City Drum Ensemble

Get comfy for Motor City Drum Ensemble, because his readying himself for a huge two-and-a-half-hour set of all the disco and house classics you could ever imagine. Another avid record-discoverer, MCDE has captivated crowds around the world with his tasteful production and party-starting nous. His got some rarities so prepare for something special.

MCDE will bring the fire from 7:30pm.

Nightmares on Wax

Nightmares on Wax has gracefully made enough time for the Living Room as he trots around the world on huge four-month tour. Initially coming from Leeds, the artist has been leading the way in trip-hop for almost 30 years reaching his pinnacle in the ‘90s. Sit back and relax as Mr George Evelyn takes you on a odyssey through music history.

Nightmares takes things to the next level from 2:30pm.

Late Nite Tuff Guy

Late Nite Tuff Guy is arguably the most sought-after Australian disco producer at this very point in time. Known for laying down absolute fire set after set, LNTG has made a name for his epic live shows. He’s only worn the Late Nite Tuff Guy moniker for a few years, but he’s already turning heads around the world taking the Glastonbury stage this year. Shine those dancing shoes.

LNTG is on at 7:30pm.


Largely responsible for Australia’s house music scene as we know it today, DJ JNETT will be dropping a unique mix of funk, reggae, Brasilian and hip hop at The Living Room. Since the early ’90s, DJ JNETT has made her name for consistency and inimitable technique behind the decks. She’s warmed up for the likes of Frankie Knuckles, Moodymann, Theo Parrish, Danny Krivit, to name a few, and that’s all the validation you need I spose.

DJ JNETT takes to the stage from 1pm.

That’s just the start too. The likes of Otologic, Millu and Pjenne, Toni Yotzi and more, will also be throwing down the heat. Don’t miss it.

The Living Room Festival goes down at The Timber Yard tomorrow. Grab your tickets via Eventbrite.
