Time Out says

Things are getting fruity in Hyde Park this summer

DJ Andreas Lohmeyer and DJ Jonny Hawkins, in their signature colourful overalls and bling jewellery, dig through their bargain basement records to spin top dollar disco under the mirror balls at Hyde Park’s Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent this Sydney Festival.

The Dollar Bin Darlings, as they’re known, get their Italo and Brazilian disco hits direct from the dollar bins at record stores and vinyl sales. They love to sprinkle a few outright bangers in their sets, but don’t spoil the broth by putting in too many DJ requests of your own – this party is about dancing, discovering something new, and defying Sydney’s reputation as a city that’s forgotten how to party.

Their ‘Disco in the Mirror Ball’ takes place from 10.30pm on Friday and Saturday night. They’re also providing the playlist for arvos in the Festival Garden from Thursday to Sunday evenings.

There’s no cover charge, no judgement and no excuse not to check it out.
