Lockout Laws

Recommended Posts

Why is it that Sydney is now the only city in Australia with lockout laws?  That stupid f**kwit #casinomike has left politics now, so why hasn't Gladys Berejiklian gone and repealed the law?  Is she just as corrupt as him and wanting to line her pockets with the cason's money?

Come on Sydney, we need another march to show we won't roll over!

Actually Sydney is not the Only city with lock out laws.. it's just the only Major City with lock out laws, Newcastle have had lockout laws for about 10 years now, they were the first city in the country I believe to trial these laws.

Oh, thats terrible that they would model sydney after newcastle!  How did newcastle's nightlife fare after the introduction of the laws?  Did it die like sydney?

It killed it!  Not quite as bad as the Sydney scene, but it really killed it!  Clubs closed, others rebranded, this website shut down (it was known also as newcastle party.com), the record stores closed, people lost their jobs, the clubs that did stay open just played commercial rubbish to try to keep people there.  It was terrible.  It still hasn't recovered, especially the commercial rubbish everywhere!

I feel like the lockout laws were not really a solution anyway. There are always fights and people having heated discussions on my walk to a train station in the CBD. :|

Agreed!  The problems that #casinomike was trying to use as a reason all happened BEFORE 1am anyway!

Even the threat of lockout laws here in QLD made alot of venues wind down their acts and artists i noticed.  Two even closed because of the threat of the lockout laws.

      Has anyone actually decided to start fighting the lockout laws that killed our vibrant nightlife nearly a decade ago?  I know there was some discussion about it late last year, but like always it seems to fall on deaf (read: religious / aged / nanny-state) ears

    • At first glance, Brisbane DJ DefWill appears to be going from strength to strength, balancing university studies, events management roles for festivals like Splendour in the Grass, Rabbits Eat Lettuce and Live Large, DJing some of the deepest techno rhythms at some of the primest techno parties on the east coast of Oz and also that he has never let the fact that he is deaf hold him back. Though if one takes the time to look (and talk) a little deeper it becomes clear that he, like many of us, carries burdens that are well beyond his control and the weight of which has been known to bring even the strongest of us down.

    • From the DJ’s perspective; since Larry Levan’s early days at the Paradise Garage, the remix – or playing different versions of songs – was one of the first notable aspects of what we now know as DJ Culture. His ethic of refreshing successful dancefloor movers in the late seventies passed down generations of DJ has been long-established as almost a perfunctory task, almost a must-do to be undertaken by the disk jockey.

    • Here is a fresh new mix from us—and one that definitely gives us the warm and fuzzies!

      So, our 'Attic' brand as a whole, the music we push—and, indeed, Andrew and I as individual DJs—is often centred around music on the lower, slower, deeper, warm-up tip. That is a label we've always worn with pride.

    • Recently I got to go check out the official Outlook Festival Queensland launch party in Brisbane. Presented by Quality Street Byron Bay, the event concept paid tribute to one of Europe’s most exciting Drum and Bass festivals and is a celebration of sound system culture.
