Reminisce Melbourne 2020 – Official Statement

Please read all of the below information carefully.

It is with heavy hearts that we confirm the rescheduling of Reminisce this Saturday due to COVID-19 health concerns.

As we stated on Friday, the safety of our patrons is our absolute number one priority, which is why we, in conjunction with Arts Centre Melbourne, our artists [including 2 French DJs] and key stakeholders, have come to this decision.

We want to ensure we provide you the full Reminisce experience and that everyone feels 100% safe at the event. In light of the developments late last week and over the weekend, we would not have been able to deliver the experience that Reminisce fans deserve to receive.

The new event date will be Saturday October 31st 2020. All current tickets will remain valid for the new date.

All ticket holders will receive an email from Ticketek in the next 72 hours, please be patient whilst waiting for this email as they are currently dealing with a very large amount of rescheduled shows. Should you not be able to attend on the new date, please follow the instructions in the Ticketek email to process a refund.

We are all as heartbroken as you are that we won’t be at The ‘Bowl on Saturday. However we can assure you of one thing. With months of extra planning, we are going to go to the next level with the production of this show. It’s going to be a celebration of epic proportions to kick off next summer.

Again, we also greatly appreciate the patience and understanding of all of you, especially those planning to travel from out of town. We understand the inconvenience this has all caused for everyone involved – from ticket holders to volunteers, staff and stakeholders.

The countdown to October 31 is on!


We’ve also been in discussions with John Course over the weekend, who has generously offered to live stream a 3 hour classics set from his house on Saturday from 7-10pm. This will stream on the DJ JOHN COURSE and Reminisce Events Facebook pages + more TBC 🚀

The set will be a wall to wall mashup of the best tunes from John’s 30 years in the house scene. You’ll definitely be hearing plenty of Reminisce favourites, plus a stack of other house classics.

Whilst we can’t all Reminisce as one at The ‘Bowl, we can all Reminisce as one with our best mates, at our own houses.

Stay tuned for full details on this in the next few days.

Be safe out there.

What Is Reminisce?

What Is Reminisce

*For the Reminisce Sydney event, click here.

If you’ve never experienced a Reminisce event, or just aren’t quite sure what it’s all about, this email we received from Matt C shortly after the 2019 event should get you off to a good start.

“I personally have never experienced an atmosphere, a connectedness, happiness and love with so many people in one place as I did on saturday. The music was sooo good and got everyone on the exact same page. John Course had the crowd in the palm of his hand every step of the way. Hearing songs from Saturday gives me goosebumps taking me back to how incredible it felt on the day. I am so grateful to have got a taste of how good the feeling was and can only hope I get a chance to feel anything like it again.”

Sounds amazing, but what actually is it?

Glad you asked…

Put simply, it’s a countdown of the 50 best house songs of all time.

All selected by the people who attend the event, via our unique voting system.

Throughout the voting process, you trawl through our list of 500 house songs, listening to them on the way if you like, and create your own shortlist. You can even add your own songs if they aren’t in the list.

Once you’ve selected your shortlist, you then trim it down to your top 5 and then place them in order, then submit your votes.

On the day, the songs are then played in a Top 50 countdown, starting at number 50 and counting down to the coveted number 1 song.

So in essence, Reminisce is all about Reminiscing the best days of your life, where all that mattered was the weekend or the next festival – whether that was 5, 10 or 15 years ago.

People come to Reminisce to immerse themselves in music, memories, moments and the Reminisce magic that really has to be experienced to be believed.

Reminisce 2020 Artists

DJ Falcon


Best known for his collaborations with Daft Punk, and smash hits ‘So Much Love to Give’ and ‘Together’ (with Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter), the French House Maestro will be gracing the very stage that his robot friends did when they wrote themselves into Melbourne house music folklore back in 2007.

“Daft Punk drop DJ Falcon & Thomas Bangalter – Together at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl 14th Dec 07.

Falcon has also remixed many artists such as Phoenix and Cassius and has toured the world for over 20 years playing alongside The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk and Kitsune. His DJ sets are inspired by a touch of electro, old school, house classics &  indie dance. Just what you need to get you primed for the Reminisce countdown.

Together (DJ Falcon & Thomas Bangalter) – So Much Love To Give 

The Supermen Lovers

Guillaume Atlan a.k.a. The Supermen Lovers is responsible for the song with the 3rd most Reminisce countdown votes of all time, THE Melbourne anthem for almost 15 years, the-one-and-only Diamonds For Her.

Not to mention, a little tune you may have heard of called Starlight…

Listening to The Supermen Lovers’ records is discovering an ace melange of passionate, highly-trained musicianship and modern production; a unique, organic sound made of synths, sequences and real, played instruments, every single one of them recognizable since the first bars.

Get ready to Guillaume to unleash all of his Reminisce countdown charting prowess on the bowl, delivering a set that will have you rocking from start to finish.

John Course

The man who has delivered all eight Reminisce countdowns and countless memories for house music fans around Australia and the world over the past 30 years will be back once again to take you through the Top 50 house songs of all time, as voted by you.

Between winning back to back DMC world DJ titles, mixing multiple Ministry Of Sound Compilations, playing to monster mainstage crowds at festivals such as Sensation, Future Music Festival, Stereosonic and Summadayze, John also heads up Vicious Recordings – the label collective that unearthed Dirty South, Avicii, Peking Duk & Madison Avenue (just to name a few).

There’s not really much more that needs to be said about the king of Australian house. The best thing to do now, is to watch and to listen 👇🏽

TV Rock

TV Rock are one of Australia’s biggest dance music exports, topping the overall ARIA charts and winning 2 ARIA awards with their monster hits ‘Flaunt It’ and ‘The Others’ in the late 00s.

Throughout the 2010’s they went on to collaborate with and remix some of the biggest electronic artists in the world such as Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Axwell, Groove Armada, Armand Van Helden and Paul Van Dyk to name but a few.

In 2020 we bring them back to the main stage of The ‘Bowl, the site where they dropped one of their most iconic sets, at Summadayze in 2007.

The boys will be delivering a classics set for the ages, sweeping through their back catalogue of 15 years of the house and electro bombs that they’re most known for.

Joining them on vocals is Melbourne house music darling and voice of some of the biggest Australian house anthems of all time, miss Zoe Badwi.

Zoe Badwi

It was late 2008 when this dance-pop diva burst on to the scene with the huge club smash Release Me.

Produced by TV ROCK, it spent a massive 7 consecutive weeks in the #1 spot on the Australian ARIA Club Chart and scored both ARIA and APRA nominations, on the way to international acclamation from acts such at The Freemasons.

But in mid-2010, Zoë hit us with Freefallin’ – proving to be her finest moment yet. Fusing classic club beats from Australia’s own Denzal Park with powerful, heady vocal and anthemic keys, Freefallin’ is a dance-pop triumph.

In 2016 Zoë partnered with electro house sensations The Potbelleez to create the ultimate remake of the 1998 global hit Horny, written by Mousse T and with original vocals by Inaya Day. The rendition, release by Ministry of Sound went straight to the top of the Dance Music Charts.

Zoe will be joining TV Rock on stage, providing vocals for a selection of tracks, whipping the crowd into a frenzy and setting the perfect tone for the countdown to come, just as Sneaky Sound System did at Reminisce 2019.

Market Memories

Separately they are Sean Rault and Oliver James, two of Melbourne’s finest house and techno DJ’s that have been filling dance floors around the country since the early 00’s.

Together they are Market Memories, who from 2015 to 2018 steadily rose to one of Australia’s most in demand acts and in 2019, took the world by storm with their hits ‘A Good One’, ‘Two Good’ and ‘The Charm’.

Having been played by acts such as Camelphat, Patrick Topping and Denis Sulta at festivals such as Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Kappa Future and playing themselves at Beyond The Valley, Rainbow Serpent and Pitch, 2020 is set to be their biggest year yet.

Market Memories destroying the dance floor at Beyond The Valley 2020

Playing their fourth consecutive Reminisce, Sean and Oliver will be winding back the clock as usual, delivering a classics set that lends itself to their house music roots with a zealous load of energy that they are candidly known for.

Listen to Market Memories ‘Old But Not Forgotten’ Classics warm up mix they delivered ahead of Reminisce 2019.
