As The Island LIVE picks up the pace into the silly season, it’s time for our ANNUAL DAYTIME SPECIAL on Friday 28th December and the very special return of the Falcona Takeover for the 3rd year in a row! Held aboard Sydney’s favourite Harbourside venue The Island; there is simply no better way to shake off the Xmas excess with one final blow out before the New Year!

The Falcona crew also host some of the best parties in the country including Wine Machine and NYE in the Park… so I’m sure you would agree that you’re in very safe hands here!

It’s been a pretty big year for so many of our artists!
Here’s a look at the Spotify numbers for Bag Raiders, Set Mo, Just A Gent and SAN HOLO.
Not bloody bad!!
Set Mo continue to prove why they're one of Australia’s hardest working acts with their new single ‘Surrender’, out yesterday via Set Mo Records. Accompanying the release, our boys have announced their debut album of the same name, is due to arrive early 2019.
‘Surrender’ features a spine-tingling marriage of ethereal soundscapes and a spoken word sample from pioneering English musician Brian Eno (given the nod of approval from Brian himself), the track invokes powerful ideas behind surrendering to one’s art.
‘Surrender’ (the single) is available right now.
