Much loved institution Purple Sneakers are celebrating 13 years in the game this weekend with a huge party at The Lansdowne in Sydney this Saturday, 15th June.

With a lineup boasting some of the most exciting local talent, the celebration will host the likes of Mickey Kojak, Chase Zera, Fishing, Kota Banks, Rebel Yell and many more when it takes over the Lansdowne this weekend.
