Blueprint has the perfect plans to get you dancing in the sunshine.
Lockdown was extreme, but enough about the past. It’s time to figure out our dancing plans from here on out. So, if you’re keen on cutting shapes and soaking up the sunshine, then look no further because Blueprint has got two big-cat cruises coming up, as well as a regular Sunday rooftop party to get you into your summer groove.
Blueprint Presents: Freedom Week Cruises
Blueprint is once again taking over a big catamaran for a party but this time it’s to celebrate all those Friday and Saturday dancefloors we’ve missed. But since it’s time to get back out there and enjoy ourselves again, they’re making sure everyone gets a shot by hitting the harbour twice on the same weekend. That’s right—twice.
First up is the Friday 22 October sunset cruise departing at 6pm which will be followed by the Saturday 3pm afternoon cruise. Both are four-hour sessions featuring the best of Blueprint’s current roster including Ben Nott, Cassette, Aaiste, Andy Ef and Emily Harkness. If lockdown was restrictive, then Blueprint’s Sydney Harbour cruises are progressive (and deep, tech, funky and house).
If you managed to snag yourself a spot on one of their cruise parties last summer, then you know what to expect. If you didn’t, then it’s dance music pumping from a quality sound system both in the cabin and out on the deck. You’ll either find yourself soaking up the sunshine or getting down in the hold. In any case, it won’t just be the boat rocking.
Blueprint Presents: Sundaze Rooftop Party
It’s taken the better part of a decade, but Blueprint has finally found itself the perfect Sunday session location—Smoke, the rooftop bar at Barangaroo House. The spacious outdoor area (that means dancing is allowed) with stunning views of the harbour is going to be in full swing from 2pm until 10pm with a choice selection of deep melodic house and groovy tech every Sunday.
Getting tickets is definitely going to be important from now on since Covid restrictions have reduced capacity to just 160 people. That’s 110 outside and another 50 inside, and those inside will have to make do with a spot of chair dancing until outside tables free up. Once restrictions lift, though, you just know that it will be a dancefloor.
With its classy cocktail list—or superb drinks offering featuring plenty of wines, beers, champagnes and a number of luxury spirits hard to find elsewhere—Smoke is definitely up there as one of Sydney’s most impressive rooftops. They’ve also got tasty food offerings (remember those skewers) to keep you fueled from early afternoon to late evening.
