Other acts who will fill out of three weeks leading up to NYE include Tommy Trash, Sneaky Sound System and John Course.

Swedish-based AN21 is a huge name in the worldwide house scene, boasting a great roster on the Size Records label, as well as managing A&R and touring his melodic peak time anthems. Likewise, collaborator Max Vangelli is quickly rising as one of the biggest names in the house genre; the two best friends let nothing get in their way.


The Aussie dance music powerhouse Sneaky Sound System are well-known for their breakthrough single I Love It, with the voice of group new-comer Connie Mitchell, spending a record-breaking 73 weeks in the Top 100 ARIA Singles Chart. The now duo, Mitchell and co-originator Black Angus (Angus McDonald), have enjoyed a career of three studio albums, two ARIA wins and an indie award – as well as multiple nominations – and bring all their energy to Pacha.


Thomas Olsen – better known as Tommy Trash – is an ARIA-nominated DJ, producer and mixer originally from Bundaberg, but now residing in Los Angeles. His career peak occurred with the mid-2011 hit The End which gave him international recognition, including sparking the attention of David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia, to name a few. He has a large string of singles since 2007 and has remixed the likes of Steve Aoki and Deadmau5.


After kicking off his career winning a few DMC mixing competitions, John Course has risen to be one of the country's leading personalities in the club scene. He brags events such as closing New Years Eve for more than 20,000 people at Summerdayze, playing for the same number of Stereosonic patrons, and most notably playing between Eric Morillo and Fedde Le Grand at the New Years event Sensation, in front of 40,000 people. He is sure to bring the house down.
