Media Release: Thursday, November 26 2009

Hollywood ‘it’ DJ Samantha Ronson to headline SYD.NYE09

Jetting in exclusively from L.A. to Sydney Opera House, Hollywood super DJ Samantha Ronson will headline the premiere luxury event SYD.NYE09.

Spinning a 90-minute set on the roof of the Western colonnade to welcome in the New Year, Ronson promises there will be no better place to spend the night.

“I’m so excited to have been invited to spin at one of the world’s most iconic venues. You can expect an eclectic mix of my favourite songs that will keep the party going and people dancing,” says Samantha Ronson of her set.

Part of a musically genius family - her stepfather,jukebox hero Mick Jones of Foreigner fame and her brother, uber DJ / producer Mark - it could be said that Samantha was destined for musical greatness. Invited to play at some of the world’s biggest parties and events, Ronson is now a fulltime jetsetter playing her unique taste in music that made her so famous all around the globe.

Supporting Ronson are international acts including Pacha Ibiza residents, Goldfish and Jon Sa Trinxa who will also jet in for SYD.NYE09. A host of local DJs including Dolso of Sneaky Sound System will hit the decks with special guest Kirrily Johnson and later, Ian Spicer.

Organisers recently announced that Matt Moran is confirmed to cater the lavish event. The multi– award-winning chef has created a unique menu, including the finest canapés, personalised Oyster service and the Moran family lamb, alongside other gourmet delicacies throughout the night.

Transforming the Western Broadwalk into a lavish oasis, complete with plunge pools and cabanas, this is the first time Sydney Opera House and lifestyle specialists Yakusan have joined forces to create this exclusive New Years Eve event. The space will also feature a dedicated bar, manned by Australia’s best bartenders serving up the finest drinks along with hosts to wait on guests every need.

The scene is now set for a luxe event where guests are promised the very best. Imagine sitting by the plunge pool in your cabana as the sun goes down, signature martini in one hand, blue swimmer crab and preserved lemon crostini in the other as you’re blissfully taken away by the Balearic beats of Jon Sa Trinxa against the harbour setting. As midnight approaches, the stunning fireworks display explode above before you burn up the dance floor with Sam Ronson – unforgettable.

Completing the prestige service is a private boat service that will ferry guests to and from the party from various points around the harbour – avoiding the inevitable NYE crush. Reserved exclusively for SYD.NYE09, the Man O’ War Steps will be the drop off point for guests to enter and exit from.

Tickets are available now for $895 all-inclusive. Tickets are strictly limited to ensure exclusivity for the intimate but outstanding event.
