Northern Soul is the original underground dance music scene. Sparked into life in clubs in northern England in the late 1960s, it now enjoys a global following, with everyone from Pharrell to Gucci using Northern Soul as the inspiration for their work.

Northern Soul’s legacy is undisputed, and its values remain unchanged – it’s simply about having a good time dancing the night away to records made by lesser known American Soul artists whose records are now coveted for their rarity.

Northern Soul has a significant and loyal following in Australia and Sydney, and the Sydney Soul Weekender will continue to showcase and celebrate Northern Soul’s legacy. In only 10 years the Sydney Soul Weekender has grown into a nationally and globally recognised event, attracting the best rare soul DJs from all over Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

This year we’re taking over 3 fantastic venues, all close to Sydney CBD.


Little Nicks – Bar and Kitchen (Albion Place Hotel)

7.00pm – 1.00am

531 George Street, Sydney – (Weekender Passholders only)

We kick things off in a new venue this year, the Albion Place Hotel. Selected for it’s central location, great in house sound system and of course wooden floor (with decently priced drinks to boot!) it should be a great way to start the weekend of soul!


The Marrickville Bowling Club

On Saturday 24th of August we’re back to where it all began for Sydney Soul Weekenders from 7pm-2am. The Marrickville Bowlo was the site of the original Sydney Soul Weekenders and last year we had an amazing night on the return to this spot. We are happy to bring it back with a cracking sound system and wooden dance floor for you to enjoy!
