BeXta and some of Australia’s top DJs are all set to party at Bombay Rock on New Year’s Eve. By JOSH ALSTON
PACK up your glowsticks and dancing shoes — this New Year’s Eve is going to be huge at Bombay Rock.
The club will be hosting some of Australia’s best DJs for one, massive all-night party.
And the girls will be getting amongst it with Australian number one female DJ BeXta playing alongside DJ Amber Savage.
They will be joined by one of Australia’s biggest DJ exports, Nik Fish, as well as DJ Weaver and local resident DJ Pandamonium.
And the night promises to be a hot and sweaty night of highenergy electronic music.
DJ BeXta will be returning to the North after playing at the Brewery last New Year’s Eve.
She is part of a glut of big-name artists who have come out of Perth in recent years, including Eskimo Joe, Little Birdy and End of Fashion.
And since her first EP, Skirmish Live, debuted in the ARIA charts back in 1999 she hasn’t looked back.
‘‘Every time I’ve played in Townsville it’s always been a really good night,’’ BeXta said.
‘‘The crowd is always up for visitors.’’
BeXta is especially looking forward to catching up with good friend and fellow DJ Nik Fish.
‘‘I’ve been playing with Nik for 10 years around the traps,’’ she said.
‘‘We only really get to catch up with each other at gigs because we travel so much, so it will be fun to catch up and have a New Year’s drink.’’
She will line up with DJ Amber Savage, one of Australia’s most promising female DJs.
‘‘I’m not often on a bill with another female DJ so it’s good that this one will be 50/50,’’ BeXta said.
Savage, who broke through in 2000 at the tender age of 19, has even spun her brand of club music at the Big Day Out.
This will be trance and melodic hardstyle specialist Fish’s second visit to the North this year following his set at Bombay Rock in September.
And for lovers of hardcore techno DJ/producer DJ Weaver will be dropping his energetic set to round out the night. DJ Weaver has established himself since as one the industry’s premier producers and has played gigs in Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Cairns and throughout Sydney.
