BFLF SYD Jingle Bell Ball family rave ft. Nik Fish & Robbie Lowe | The Factory Theatre | Sunday, 17. December 2017

T'was the week before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for A BIG ROOM OF RAVERS!!

Big Fish Little Fish is back once again! And we're ready to get our festive on and celebrate the silly season with you!

We are extremely proud to bring you Aussie legends Djs NIK FISH & ROBBIE LOWE and hosted by Slice MC!

Nik Fish's position as a leading Australian DJ is reinforced by his skill, determination, drive, passion and many years of hard work. His career began on radio in the early 90s as a presenter of his own dance music show called 'Musiquarium'. He was a major player in the original rave scene in the 90s playing alongside Carl ***, The Prodigy and more!

Considered world class by fans and peers, Robbie Lowe maintains his presence amongst Australia's electronic music artists as one of the best. His sets speak for themselves, and as a DJ, Robbie has garnered praise of the highest form from some of the biggest names in the business. He has toured the world and warmed up for some of the world's most respected artists.

Who should come?

Yep, it's a rave :)

Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with some seating, club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used and events are busy with around 7-800 people at each party - which helps create the rave ambience. Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance. Volume is set at a safe level for children and carefully monitored throughout the event.

We may photograph or film small parts of the event and by entering you are giving your permission for these to be used for BFLF promotion purposes.

Prams and Changing
If you can manage it we suggest not bringing a pram. We recommend slings and carriers for comfort and for some heart to heart raving on the dance floor :) We realise some people will need to bring prams and there is a Pram Park. Prams are not allowed upstairs or on the dance floor for safety reasons. Changing facilities will also be available.

Getting There
Where possible and certainly if you are coming from within a 10 kilometre radius of the Factory, we recommend that you arrive by public transport. The Newtown/Enmore Precinct are well served by public transport both trains and buses, late into the evening.

The following bus services stop outside the theatre: 423 and 426 (428 turns off at Addison Rd – Vic on the Park Hotel, 2 min walk from the Factory.) These services operate from Circular Quay via Central Station.

The Factory Theatre is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute bus ride from Newtown Railway Station. Bus services 423 and 426 operate from Newtown Station directly to The Factory Theatre. These services are reasonably frequent and continue late into the evening. The Factory Theatre is also a 15 minute walk from Sydenham and Marrickville Railway Stations.

Unrestricted Parking
Newtown, Enmore and Marrickville are well served by public transport and taxis. However, if it is necessary to drive there is limited onsite parking, and plentiful local street parking.
