After a huge success on the first Throwdown we have decided to put on another!
We have made a few changes from the first Throwdown, primarily more 90’s Classic Shit.! We felt a lot of the classics were missed last time due to us trying to avoid playing the same songs. We’ve collaborated this time to make sure we get through as much as possible.
8 True School Hip Hop Dj’s on four turntables cutting up 80’s and 90’s Hip Hop, Breaks and all those Golden Era Classics…Once again, Come get some of that Old School Flavour..!
All tickets this time will be pre sold through OzTix to avoid anyone lining up and missing out like last time (again, our apologies but we simply could not fit you guys in..)
