Synthetic Dreams: A Dark Roller Disco

Sat 8th May, 2021
6:30pm – 11:30pm
The Line
2 Yewers Street, Footscray
Price: $41.42
Skate around a Footscray warehouse and glide through live projections and video art while DJs play music throughout the night.

Roller disco is fun – period. But even more fun? A roller disco in the dark, with art projected across every corner of a Footscray warehouse.

That’s what’s in store at Synthetic Dreams, part of the program for Footscray’s inaugural Stargazed Festival. Art and visuals from Carla Zimbler, Don Gray, Spektraflash, Akfortysevs and Rachael Button will be projected along the walls or played on video screens, accompanied by music from Premium Fantasy, DJ Manchild, Dr Chicken Gristle, DJ Suseri and Fareevader.

The immersive experience also includes rolling performances by Skate Odyssey, door prizes, raffles and awards for best costumes – the theme is Footscrazy, so get as loud and weird as you want.

There’ll be designated non-skating areas if you want to take a break. BYO skates or rollerblades encouraged.
