London’s iconic Ministry of Sound Club is coming to Sydney, and will launch at ivy this Saturday June 10.
Taking over ivy every Saturday night, Ministry of Sound Club will feature a brand new soundsystem and a clubbing experience like no other in Australia, carrying on the one rule for Ministry of Sound: the music comes first.
“Since its inception, ivy has delivered world-class entertainment experiences unlike anything else in the country,” said Justin Hemmes, Merivale CEO. “It’s now time for the next evolution of Saturday nights at ivy, with music at its core.
“We are thrilled to be working alongside Ministry of Sound Australia to launch the iconic Ministry of Sound Club in Sydney and celebrate the very best of dance music.”
Time McGee, CEO of Ministry of Sound Australia, adds: “Ministry of Sound in London is a world-renowned venue and has been the destination for lovers of dance music for over 25 years. We are now going to bring that same experience and ethos to Sydney.”
First opening in September 1991 and inspired by New York’s legendary Paradise Garage, Ministry of Sound was the UK’s first superclub dedicated to dance music.
The site was a derelict bus garage in a part of South London considered more infamous than famous, but within a matter of weeks, word had spread and London’s nightlife would never be the same again.
Sydney will now get to experience the essence of what Ministry of Sound means and why millions of clubbers have made the pilgrimage to South London for over 25 years.
Ministry of Sound Club will take over ivy every Saturday night from June 10 with four rooms of music offerings, making it part of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest licensed entertainment with an impressive portfolio of indoor and outdoor bars.
