One of the hands-down highlights of Melbourne Now was watching people interact with artist Darren Sylvester’s ‘For You’, the hugely fun lit-up dancefloor that filled the NGV with smiling, shuffling punters for four months. If you were lucky enough to wander in during White Night, you’ll have memories of the good times to be had when hundreds of party-hunting Melburnians hit Sylvester’s dancefloor on a late night.

Mini Australia is well aware of the ‘For You’ effect, and for its biggest car launch in ten years has asked Sylvester to create a brand new dancefloor that will react to dancers and the music at the launch party.

Interactive design gurus Eness will also be sprinkling their magic across the event, with tunes supplied by Naysayer & Gilsun, Animals Dancing and Pleasure Planet DJs.

Talking about his Melbourne Now work, Sylvester told us “the dance floor is called ‘For You,’ because it is for you. I’ve spent a lot of time to make this gift so that when you walk in, you’ll feel good about it.” The new Mini dancefloor goes a step further, actually responding to you while you dance. (watch this Youtube clip to see what we mean).

If you’re a fan of MINI, good tunes and excellent parties, head to MINI’s Facebook page to register for the event.

The new Mini hatch launches on Thursday, May 8 at Melbourne Pavilion, from 7pm. Head here for a chance to attend.
