Melbourne’s got a brand-spanking-new festival at a brand-spanking-new venue in Port Melbourne. And headlining the full day of music and entertainment is none other than The Veronicas—Australia’s global pop-music sensations whose first national tour in six years was postponed till next year. You’ll get to see them this year at Keep It Together Festival and if you treat yourself to VIP tickets, there’ll be plenty of time to splash around in a private pool as well.
Alongside The Veronicas, Keep It Together Festival has rounded up some of the country’s dance music-heavy hitters. Breaking ground with her Crave compilation series way back in 2008, DJ Havana Brown has toured the world and opened for the likes of Britney Spears, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, Pussycat Dolls, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
She’s no stranger to a dance party and neither are the Stafford Brothers, who will also be pumping their signature sound at the post-Christmas festival. The brothers have been around for a minute, but their energy abounds and their latest tracks are still igniting dancefloors.
Electronic music has some legends and pioneers. Keep It Together Festival rolls back the years with Daft Punk tribute act Discovery, who will be throwing down a party vibe, while respected electronic music tastemakers FeenixPawl will be on the decks playing their own productions, which have spent weeks on weeks on Top 100 charts around the world. Slowing down the tempo but still making you sweat will be DJ Horizon, Australia’s #1 RnB DJ.
Yeah, you’re going to be getting down and you’re going to want a space to cool off. Those with VIP tickets will get access to a private pool and drying area, as well as private bars, toilets and an elevated viewing area to make the most of the on-stage performances. VIPs, though, will need to stray from their special area when they want to hit up the carnival rides, browse the market stalls to complete their festival outfits, and lose themselves in the art installations peppered around the grounds.
Rounding out the Keep It Together Festival line-up is a host of Aussie acts including Morning Maxwell as well as DJ Kitty Kat, and vocalists Omar Dean, Renee Naccari and Sarah Kabbani.
Keep It Together Festival is going to be a massive celebration on Boxing Day, Sunday 26 December. And after all the Christmas feasts you’ve attended this month, who’s not going to want hours and hours of dancing? The all-day party will be happening at PICA, the new Port Melbourne Industrial Centre For The Arts, and you can be one of the first to break in the new space.
