Are they planning something huge?
Do they sleep at night?
These are just some of the questions we’ve been asked recently and only 1 of them is true (we do sleep sometimes)… We’ve been warming up for winter and planning some huge acts to follow over the next few months with some rising stars, some old favourites and more than just a few surprises for the Destination? massive!
I digress though; let’s get to the next party… Destination? presents a “Sunday Session” at our favourite & fully “Funktion 1’d” venue in Sydney, 202 Broadway. On the June long weekend we are bringing you one of Funk & Breaks most respected and connected Djs, Producers, Radio Show Hosts and all round nice guy ALI B.
