Modular label stage massive hometown party

Klaxons and The Avalanches play Sydney Christmas rave

Influential label Modular threw a massive hometown party this week (December 1).

The label, who originated in Australia, took over Sydney’s Forum venue for their two-stage Christmas show which boasted a glowstick chandelier plus a makeshift funfair.

With Klaxons leading the way, the event also featured performances from The Vendettas, Ghosts, Van She, Bumblebeez, New Young Pony Club, Cut Copy DJ’s, Riot in Belgium, and Avalanches.

With a strong new rave feel thanks to crowd’s neon clothes, over-sized glasses plus a multitude of glowsticks – many of which cracked open and the fluorescent liquid used to decorate the venue – highlights included New Young Pony Club, Vendettas and Bumblebeez, who played their set dressed in a tiger costume.

Klaxons, meanwhile, made many new friends with their set including one enthusiastic female stage invade who managed to evade security to plan a big kiss on Jamie Reynolds‘ lips.

Klaxons played:

’The Bouncer’

‘Atlantis to Interzone’

‘Hall Of Records’

‘Totem On The Timeline’


‘As Above’

‘Golden Skans’

‘Gravity’s Rainbow‘

‘Its Not All Over’

‘Two Receivers’

‘Four Hoursemen 2012’

Along with the bands, Cut Copy and The Avalanches performed DJ sets outside, ensuring the rave atmosphere was reached the funfair.

Meanwhile, Modular have compiled a CD that is been given away exclusively with this week’s issue of NME.

Featuring the likes of Wolfmother, New Young Pony Club, Cut Copy and many more, the Independent Thinking CD is free with copies of NME on UK newsstands now.
