PERFORMANCES

Traffik Island’s Shadow Band
Great Hall
7.30pm – 8.30pm

Traffik Island is the musical project of Zak Olsen. It acts as an outlet for whatever sounds pique his interest at that time, from fragile and wordy acoustic meanderings to instrumental electronic themes for movies that don’t exist. The Traffik Island live show reflects the discography in the sense that it’s always changing yet always the same. Whether it’s a full band, a synth duo, solo acoustic or karaoke – it’s all Traffik Island. 

Sina
Great Hall
6.00pm – 7.30pm
8.30pm – 10.00pm

Bass-music selections from drum n bass DJ sina has the artist quickly making her mark in Naarm, with an unparalleled DJ-style and approach.  Her passion for wub sounds and dedication to thoughtful and conscientious curation has meant she has quickly established a solid place for herself in our scene. Beyond her craft behind the decks, she is 1/3 of the deep and gritty band dregs, and co founder of emerging local record label, mud.
