Fans of super DJ Alan Thompson should get to Sleaze Ball early on Saturday night.
Organisers have confirmed the Ministry of Sound veteran will be opening the night with a three-hour set in the Hordern from 9pm.
New Mardi Gras chair David Imrie has already announced that due to the clocks going forward over the long weekend partygoers will get an extra hour’s worth of Sleaze with the party starting at 9pm. The fun will continue for a full 11 hours until 8am the following day.
With Alan Thompson in the Hordern from 9pm this year, Sleaze Ball is going to kick off in the biggest way possible, he said.
And with the Potbelleez to follow it’s going to be massive.
The Potbelleez boys -” the force behind hit tracks Don’t Hold Back and Are You With Me? -” will follow directly on from Alan Thompson at midnight.
A huge set from Sveta will see her funky, twisted, deep and dirty grooves rock the Hordern until 4am.
Mark Murphy will take on the sunrise shift until 6am while one of the night’s highlights -” Deepchild -” will bring the party down with his expansive leftfield sound from 6am until 8am.
Bitch regular Beatrix will start off proceedings in the Forecourt at 9pm, with GI Jode taking over until 3am, followed by Sleaze veterans Luke Leal and Jake Kilby keeping everyone moving until 8am.
