DJs at FAD Gallery

Soul? Yep. Funk? You betcha. Folk AND rock? Well, there must be a DJ on hand. Friday and Saturday night, FAD Gallery in Melbourne CBD’s Chinatown gets taken over by DJs spinning tracks until late. If you’re just after a night of fun and noncommittal good music then the good folks at FAD are your first stop. There’s usually some great art on the walls worth taking a gander at as well. Check how to find them here.
