But: Auction@ FirstDraft

Impress your uncultured mates with a swanky bit of art from Firstdrafts annual auction. Don’t worry, you wont have to sell an organ to be able to afford it, with over 120 artworks from emerging and established artists, you can pick up a piece for a reasonable price with the majority of artworks expected to fetch around $200-500.  Start of your collection this weekend.

Party: Heaps Gay “Masqueerade:”

Kicking off Sydney Fringe Festival is a huge Masqueerade from the team at Heaps Gay. The warehouse location will host two parties, but with the Saturday night bash already sold out, you better get in quick for the Sunday session. You’ll be promised live music, performances, along with outrageous costumes. This year’s theme is transform/disguise, so make sure you go big. For tickets and information visit:

After Party: One Day Car Park Carnival

If you’re less Masquerade, more Hip hop day party, then maybe The One Day Car Park Carnival at the Maxx Watts precinct is more your vibe. You can go all afternoon with the event starting at 1pm and going until 10pm as a part of the Red Bull Academy Weekender. Of course there is a solid crew turning up with the likes of Remi, Jackie Onassis, B Wise, Joyride, Shantan Wantan Ichiba and more all in attendance. For tickets click:
