When Sigala Slayed Pacha Sydney at The Ivy

The Ivy has always known how to party it up fresh and bold, delivering unforgettable solid nights, but there’s certainly no complacency in the events they’ve hustled up for this coming party season.

Having poured creativity, innovation and a keen sense of party sensibilities into the next Pacha bonanza, the fourth zinger of a season at Australia’s biggest club night is carving out fresh new shapes, busting down those boundaries. Keen to keep the tunes a poppin’ and rollin’ to the beat of the vibrant millennial groove, fresh genre- bending sounds and ambitious new acts are set to claim the night as its own.

The man, the myth, the Brit crushed the opening night as only he knew how, with cruising remixes of the songs that could move your nan to boogie and shimmy across that dirty dance floor.

Sigala has met with whopping success in his hits Easy Love, Sweet Lovin’ and Say You Do and the man surely delivered a set in equal proportions fresh, vibrant and shout at the top of your lungs worthy. Even your aunt Margery knows that the vibe of the night is not just set by the technical proficiency of the DJ, but by how much they love what they’re bloody doing, and The Ivy has picked a crop of artists who live and breath their craft.

Yolanda Be Cool, Trance Nation, Sneaky Sound System and Drezo are all on the lineup for May. Each in their own way bringing bangers that will have you throwing such crisp shapes, you’ll have to limber real well or you’ll throw your back out.

Completing the night of high grooves and passionate tunes are the Ivy dancers who will surely have you enthralled. From the pop-art costumes resembling what appears to be ducks, to the neon green wigs, they are art unto themselves, just daring you to follow the quirky and innovative choreography.

Drinks, galore, a DF raising it to the non-existent ceiling and solid DJ sets giving the people what they want, culminates in a Pacha night at The Ivy delivering in spades. Perhaps leaving Sunday morning to be a slow and measured one.
