Venue info>>>> Whitlam Leisure Centre
In November 2002 one of Sydney’s largest legal all night dance party venues was forced to close its doors to the Open age party scene. For the 3 years prior to that, some of the most legendary events had taken place in the centre. Events like Love Nation 2000 the huge New Years Eve party, Mystic 5 with a massive 2,000+ crowd and the last party to be held there, Hyperspeed that featured 6 amazing Happy Hard International acts.

Now almost 5 years later, the team at Overdrive.com.au have the pleasure in announcing . . .WE’RE BACK!!! We have been in negotiations with the Whitlam Centre for almost the entire 5 years, and we have once again been granted approval to take our killer all night open age parties back to the venue we loved so much. To relaunch this spectacular venue, we are holding a brand new VIP limited capacity event – OPERATION HARDCORE.

We are taking our 15 years of party experience and combining the talents of our production and decorating team back to what is easily one on Sydney’s best legal venues.

ATTENTION RECRUITS! Your Drill Sergeant has arrived.

Few DJs can play music that hits hard as hell and moves a crowd to dance.
Few can write original songs that make you want to sing.
Only a special artist can play live in front of 1 million people.

Rob Gee has done all of all this and more.

His energetic and infectious performances have seen him tour the world several times, appearing in places like Australia, Japan, Italy, Spain, Scotland, Austria, Hungary and Belgium to name a few along with Holland’s THUNDERDOME, MYSTERYLAND, SENSATION BLACK and Germany’s LOVE PARADE - where Rob Gee played before 1 Million people. His diverse appeal keeps him performing weekly at all types of musical events and concerts.

Any artist with great songs needs to record, and Rob has put out over 50 releases in the past decade on various labels including ADAM (Aggressive Dance And Music) Worldwide, His self-owned label and primary showcase for His Work.

His song "Ecstasy You Got What I Need" went Gold and was the #1 video on The Box for 13 straight weeks in Europe. At the same time "Ecstasy" rose to #9 on the Dutch pop charts and earned Him Best Artist, Best Producer and Best Song of the year at The Thunder Awards in Holland.

There is no better man to lead the troops at Operation Hardcore. Get ready Sydney for a full scale assault of gabber, as your commander leads the battle of music supremacy. This will be one performance that won't soon be forgotten.

Production Info
For Operation Hardcore our special operations team will be installing a devastating array of audio assault equipment, capable of launching thunderous bass bombs throughout the hardcore battleground. We have deployed our reconnaissance teams resources to camouflaging the main battle ground with army props and decorations, together with camouflaging our main artillery installation. We will be utilising the latest in advanced warfare laser guidance systems, as well as powerful 360 degree light cannon back up turrets. Rest assured soldiers, our main aim is to give you the energy through light and sound for you to continue your dance floor operations throughout the night.

Please note, this event is being held in the smaller arena at Whitlam Leisure Centre, and the reduced ticket price reflects that. This will be a sell out event. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!
