Slumberjack, Crooked Colours Confirmed for A Very Sweaty Xmas at the Abercrombie

Beloved Sydney pub the Abercrombie will play host to A Very Sweaty Xmas in late December, with Slumberjack and Crooked Colours (DJ Set) leading the bill.

A Very Sweaty Xmas is a tradition of dance label Sweat It Out, which turned 15 this year. They’ll be taking over the newly renovated hotel on Tuesday, 27th December.

Slumberjack: ‘Better Off’

Perth bass act Slumberjack will lead the celebrations for the label, backed up by a DJ set from Perth alt-dance trio Crooked Colours. They’ll be joined by selectors like POOLCLVB, Ben Miller, Taleena, Mell Hall, and more. The event is raising funds for music charity Support Act and will run from 3pm until 3am.

A bunch of parties will be happening at the Abercrombie following its official reopening a couple of days before Christmas, with parties from Purple Sneakers, Motorik, and House of Mince all taking place over the first month. It’ll all kick off with a 36-hour party running from Friday, 23rd December until 5am on Christmas morning. A heap of acts will appear over the course of the party, including Andy Garvey, Dameeeela, Ayebatonye, and Mike Who.

The Abercrombie, which played host to some of Sydney’s biggest parties during the city’s indie dance era, closed its doors in 2014 before being bought by the hospitality group Solotel in 2016. It was initially scheduled to reopen in 2018.
