After six years touring the globe staging raucous dance parties in far-flung geographic locations, from sustainable jungle communities to intimate cliff side rendezvous, Audiofly’s Flying Circus touches down at Sankeys Ibiza for 13 provocative parties throughout summer.
Budgie Collective HQ has been slammed recently. New DJs, upgrades to our servers, ground breaking web features (like our Track Browser, and Mix Crate) have had us questioning our sanity and consuming resources like a web radio version of an Aral Sea irrigation project. We have had some amazing wins, but now it’s time to let our hair down.

Bio: Equal Dose is the fusion of two closely aligned parties from the Melbourne dance scene; together we form a union of avid music enthusiasts with decades of experience behind us. Our music is electronic in nature but diverse in appeal with influences ranging from Minimal to Techno and Progressive to Trance.
We have added a custom built twitter app to our arsenal. The app, which works in the background, gives us the ability to keep you informed about all our currently playing sets. This has hooks into the very architecture of our streaming platform and works by sending tweets with DJ, Set and Genre information every time a new set plays on air.
We have set this up independent of our official twitter account so that we don’t spam users only wanting to catch our news tweets. If you want a piece of this, simply follow @BC_nowplaying on twitter and we’ll do all the work for you. That’s all there is to it.
We have secured the brand spanking new, plush & wacky Hasti Bala Bar, at The Carlton.
Bass will drop at 9pm sharp, featuring Sets from Budgie Collective’s very own all-star cast. Best of all it’s free! Sign up for the action at our facebook event page.
Head along to Word Bar this Saturday night in Melbourne for the launch of Equalise. Featuring Sebastian Wild, Xitation, Freya, Rips & Cali. Those that can’t make it can listen live on Budgie Collective. Just another reason to love live and local EDM. The bass drops at 9pm!
