Head over to Circular at Loop Project Space & Bar for some cool tunes and fun visuals at this free event. Circular is an event dedicated to bringing like-minded DJ’s and visual artists together to create the best experience possible.

DJ Kiti and Chiara Kickdrum join Andre Le Vogue and Jani HO, fresh from playing live in Detroit as part of Movement Festival. This band of merry DJ’s will bring you a night of fine electronica and sonic manipulations, enhanced with visual imagery by VDMO KSTATI.

Dance up a storm or just kick back with a drink and soak up the atmosphere, either way it’s a great way to kick off a Friday night.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
