With a PNAU DJ SET headlining proceedings, the trio, made up of Nick Littlemore (one half of Empire of the Sun), Peter Mayes and Nick’s older brother Sam, aka Sam La More, have been key figures in the dance music scene of Australia and beyond for more than two decades, winning fans all over for their irresistible style of euphoric house. To give you a taste of what’s to come, PNAU have recently remixed pop star Lizzo’s ‘2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)’ as well as reworking Diana Ross and Tame Impala’s ‘Turn Up The Sunshine’.

Setting itself apart from traditional shows, all artists performed on a huge LED stage, mimicking the all new Samsung Flip — renowned MC Shantan Wantan Ichiban hosted throughout the night keeping vibes on point, DJing and also introing the stellar line-up.

The night saw collaborations between music and art, heroing digital creators from around Australia on the giant screen while the DJs played through the night on a stage in the shape of a Galaxy Z Flip4 phone.

Positioned on Sydney’s iconic harbour, the event featured supporting acts by Set Mo, Dena Amy, Stacie Fields, dameeeela, Troy Beman and Madami.

Speaking ahead of the event, PNAU’s Nick Littlemore said: “It’s always extra special for us to play in Sydney as it’s our hometown, and there are few better places to perform than against the iconic backdrop of the Opera House. The Flextival line-up is a great showcase of up-and-coming talent, and the intimate venue is sure to make it even more memorable.”

The live stream is out on Mixmag’s YouTube on October 7 at 7:00PM AEST and 10:00AM GMT. If you’re in the market for a new device, don’t forget to check out the new fourth-gen Samsung Galaxy Z Series.
