Hyperspeed is one of the longest running Dance party series in Sydney, having reached the pinnacle of all night entertainment with the massive HYPERSPEED GOLD SERIES in November 2002 and HYPERSPEED ATRIUM in November, 2003. Since then we have brought the event back to a more intimate environment, with the first HYPERSPEED UNDERGROUND last February.

If you can remember the amazing HYPERSPEED GOLD SERIES, you will remember we pioneered a night filled with 6 of the best Happy Hard Internationals. Now in 2006 we are once again offering a staggering international lineup of Happy Hardcore acts, backed up by Sydney's premier party talent. We have confirmed a fully intense, fully legal, fully licensed inner city venue, the magnificent METRO THEATRE. This will be one of the most amazing Hyperspeed events ever, and will once again show why we have the abilities to create the best and wildest Open Age events in Australia. HYPERSPEED GOLD 2 is here!

With a comfortable capacity for over 1,300 people, this 3 area monster is located in the centre of the City, right on George St. The main arena holds around 1,000 and features a tiered dance platform so everyone can see the madness on the main stage. A second Over 18 arena allows for a more intimate group of 300 to dance and drink, while the third area, the Lobby, allows for a quiet area to chill and chat. We are proud to offer Sydney punters with the first ever open age event at Metro to feature such a staggering lineup of International and Local talent. We are putting in 110% effort for this event to both guarantee a sell out, and to supply every punter with the night of their lives, or at least close to it.

Why the strange Start and Finish time?
Normally our events run from say 10pm-6am, but this event will run from 8pm-3am. This is because the license at Metro only allows the venue to run till 3am, even for the over 18 events. We believe some people will be put off by this early finish time, and won't come to Hyperspeed, and that's fair enough. However, with our capacity set at 1,300 and our previous events selling 2-3 x that, we think we'll have enough interest in this event to attract a sell out crowd. Remember, we're only losing 1 hour of total party time as we are starting at 8pm, and really, a 3am finish could lead to a mad morning watching the sun come up in Hyde park or down at the Rocks (more on that online).

First 600 TICKETS only $25+bf from
Central Station Records (Darlinghurst)
That's right, $25 for 5 Internationals!!!

Final release $44+bf from

We are limited to only 1,300 tickets, and with 5 International acts, we knew from word go we'd sell out, hell our first Hyperspeed Gold had 2,500 people and Hyperspeed Atrium had 4,200. Knowing we would sell out no matter what, we could have offered a standard "high price" ticket, but we don't want to be greedy. We want to offer the best deal we can, and we want every punter to think of this Hyperspeed event as their own VIP party. So having said that, we have come up with an amazingly cheap first release ticket. Here's how it works, the first 600 people to get in quick and buy a ticket from Central Station Records will only pay $25 plus bf. That’s $25 for 7 internationals. The final 700 tickets through Central, Ticketek, the Metro and Overdrive.com.au will be a flat $44 + bf. If any tickets are left on the door (and we doubt it), they will be $50.
