About this event

Yung Lung is a party on Mount Olympus.

Yung Lung lays siege to the space as upright techno shatters sound barriers and video burns retinas in an abrasive communion between hard tech and baby-faced bodies. Dancers stomp around a god-like effigy by visual artist Callum Morton, while an extreme barrage of video content trawled from the depths of the digital universe rains down courtesy of music video director Kris Moyes. Sweat soaks through club regalia designed by Perks & Mini, while stage lighting by Bosco Shaw pulsates to the bass-heavy soundtrack of Melbourne techno experimentalist Chiara Kickdrum.

Yung Lung is a techno treatise and party prophecy where history is buried under feet that stomp beyond the information age.
