Bad Dog is a roving pack of friends, dj's and art hounds that have banded together to stage a series of get-togethers outside the mainstream club scene. Believing mongrelism is the way to go, we happily interbreed all the different hounds in club land at friendly, small scale, off the beaten track venues. Remember folks, too much pure breeding results in weak offspring.

We encourage all kinds of mutts, poodles, pit bulls and hounds to participate in our parties to create the musical and visual atmosphere that Bad Dog is renowned for.

Bad Dog was born in the year 2000 with Yos Worth, Ben Drayton, Steve Sonius, Bill Cotsis and Annabelle Gaspar wanting to create a unique aural and visual space to dance and get lost in. While Yos and Ben have now departed from Bad Dog they played a central part to the energy that is bad dog today.

We have had the honour of working with visual artists Marty, Jade, Vandal, Dogswood, Marion and Essem projects and have been loyally served in sound by the extraordinary Kevin Davidson. Photographers John Dennis and Joy M Lai have wonderfully captured our party goers amidst their photo booth sets from 2008.

Together we've cooked up music that varies from deep house, twisted breaks, forgotten vocals, reckless rock, old school funk, fast, slow, old, new (whatever... no rules) and served a feast of visuals representing Sydney artists and freaks.

Bad dog would like to acknowledge that their events take place on the stolen lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation.
We pay our respects to Elders; past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.
