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. To get you in the mood, Loveless has prepared this teaser mix ahead of the event.
Having played the likes of Camp Nong, DAYDREAMS, Gaytimes and Strawberry Fields in Melbourne, Rose Quartz Festival in Tasmania, World Pride in Toronto and The Great Wall of China Music Festival in Beijing, the globetrotting Jennifer Loveless can be found most weekends bringing her finest aural delights to your favourite Melbourne clubs. She also presents the weekly radio show Weatherall on 87.6 KISS FM Australia.
