dance restarted we
’ve been going full pelt to bring you as many reasons to get out of the house and onto the floor as we can. Now we’re going mega, inviting one of Australia’s most beloved party starters to the UNSW Roundhouse for a day of pure disco elation. Picnic is chuffed to bring you…
Courtney from the country, now the Antipodean queen of disco, CC has exploded in the past few years simply through playing unbelievable set after unbelievable set all over the planet. Having presented
on radio and honed her craft since she was 15, her weekly
PBS FM slot of six years ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ became a local
institution—the quintessential Friday night
party starter—priming her for a bi-weekly residency on Rinse FM, where she’s broadcast her message of love and good times to ears
on every continent. She’s become one of Melbourne’s biggest international exports, playing heaps of the world’s best festivals
like Glastonbury, Love International and Kala, but even after moving to Lisbon her roots are still firmly back home in Aus. Her First
Light compilation repped a stack of amazing local artists. Now it’s time for a second installment and this time CC has selected 24 eclectic local and international acts. First Light Volume 2 is due out on May
7 and features everything from Balearic shakers to hard ass Italo, home listening groovers to 4am bangers.
Basically, everywhere she goes, every set she plays, CC instantly gains lifelong fans because her music is so ridiculously good and her vibe is so irresistibly positive. So what could be more of a positive vibe than a Picnic day out at the Roundhouse with CC:DISCO? Not much. Except with the added bonus that local legends Mike Who and Adi Toohey will be getting the party started right.
