Briggs Is Throwing A ‘Reclaim Australia Day’ Party With His Label

Written by Sam Murphy on January 23, 2017

Rapper Briggs has announced that his label Bad Apples and fellow label House Of Beige will be throwing a ‘Reclaim Australia Day’ party three days after Australia day.

The party will go down this weekend in Melbourne at Section 8 with DJ sets from both Bad Apples and House Of Beige.

Briggs is a very strong force in the argument to change the date of Australia Day and this party sets an alternate date for those to celebrate the country without doing so on a day that’s a day of mourning for Indigenous Australians.

A.B. Original, the duo comprising of Briggs and good mate Trials, are contenders to take out the Hottest 100 with January 26, a song that pretty clearly lays out the reasons why we should change the date.

They also dropped one of 2016’s best and most politically-driven records Reclaim Australia which this party shares a name, in part, with.

There’s a campaign to get ‘January 26’ to the top of triple j‘s Hottest 100 countdown which would also act as a protest for triple j to change the date of their countdown.

Check out the deets of Briggs’ ‘Reclaim Australia Day’ party below.
