By Ourselves mix by Jennifer Loveless
We’re thrilled to be bringing our EARS mixtape series to life under the MPavilion roof on Friday 14 October with Melbourne-via-Toronto DJ Jennifer Loveless. Transforming our online series into an IRL twilight shindig amid the lush surrounds of the Queen Victoria Gardens from 6–9pm, we invite you to bring in the weekend under Bijoy Jain’s pavilion made from bamboo, rope and stone.
