Since its inception in 2012, OutsideIn Festival has revealed to be one of Sydney’s most exciting festivals. Now situated at Manning House, which sits on the campus of the University of Sydney, it is everything that a small festival should be. With a chilled, respectful crowd and a cleverly curated lineup, the festival creates a uniquely intimate relationship between artist and audience. This Saturday will see it’s fourth run, and it looks set to be even more exciting this time.
Using the space of the university bar must present some great challenges, but what they did with the space last year was incredible. The festival organisers completely reinvented it, adding an outdoor stage and designs from local artists, including handmade jellyfish hanging from the top of the courtyard area. The choice of artists is of consistently high quality, with a strong focus on electronica and inclusive of both local and international talent.
This weekend will see the likes of Devin The Dude, Big K.R.I.T, Cosmo’s Midnight, Sable, Total Giovanni, Cassius Select, Ben Fester, UV Boi, Pomo, Montgomery, Kucka, Andrés and more. Not only that, once the shenanigans end at around 10pm, festival goers have the option of continuing the party at GoodGod Small Club.
Presented by Astral People and Bacardi Fuego, GoodGod will be offering both its front and back area to the afterparty, kicking off at 10pm this Saturday (Sep 26). The back room will have a heavy house leaning, with Detroit producer Andrés, whose chilled house beats have made a huge impression on the underground scene, as well as Pender Street Steppers and Sydney artist Mike Who. The front section will incorporate a fusion of hip hop, grime, electronica and more, featuring DJ sets from Cosmo’s Midnight, Sable and South London MC Stormzy. These epic sets will be followed by Catlips, whose incredible mix of disco, house, pop and electronica will surely keep the party charging until an epic close by local artists Andy Garvey and Chris Barker.
