Party Beyond 2019
After a sold-out debut last year, Party Beyond is returning to Scienceworks for another night of music meets science.
It’s a chance to see Luke Jerram’s wildly popular, impossibly detailed Museum of the Moon – a seven-metre-across Moon replica – up close. The NASA imagery of the lunar surface will make a surreal backdrop for blues-singer Mama Alto and the aptly named Cumbia Cosmonauts, whose music puts a modern spin on Colombian folk music.
The museum’s colourful, hands-on kids exhibition, Ground Up, is where you’ll find emotive-electro artist Geryon and exuberant, eclectic keyboard master Waterfall Person.
Beyond Perception, which explores invisible fields such as gravitational waves and sound, will host the steamrolling industrial techno of Brisbane artist Rebel Yell and an exploration of improvisation and sound design by Old Capital.
Melbourne band Huntly are DJing in the futuristic Think Ahead space, DJ trio House of Friends will take over the long-standing Sportsworks installation, and Party Beyond veteran Biscotti, aka Carla Ori, will get behind the decks as well.
The freshly refurbished Planetarium will feature multi-instrumentalist Synthtronica (Ania Reynolds), under its domed night sky.
Food trucks and drinks will also be available on the night. From 6.30pm to 11pm.
