----------------------------------------

After 12 months of searching, an old Victorian school yard became the venue for the all day party we called Telephones.  It needed to be somewhere easy to get to, that could allow us to dance outside but nip inside when it eventually rained and landlords who'd 'get'what we were trying to do.  After a year of false hopes and dead ends, when we stumbled into the space on a freezing, raining January day all we could see was sunshine and all the above boxes were ticked one after the other.

We held our first Telephones event in May 2014 and had 250 happy peope dancing to the music we love and with 10 hours to play without the usual late night pressures the DJs were able to stretch their legs, dig deep into their collections and play amazing music to happy smiley dancey people all day.

We went again in July and then decided to do squeeze one more outdoor party out of 2014 before thew weather really turned, this time in a dark and dirty laneway just off Grafton Street where 500 people showed up to dance til the wee hours.  

We were blown away by the response we got.  It was clear; people wanted something different, with some imagination and attention to detail and we were happy to give it to them

We will be back in 2015 with an intentionally small amount of special Telephones events, inside and outside, with the focus on details and music and not big names and bar queues

See you on the dancefloor.
