9.15pm - The Main Stage
DJ Charlie Villas' Obsession with music began in the mid 90s when she was handed her very first funk vinyl by a friend. This gesture spawned a disco and soul record collecting frenzy until eventually she’d saved up enough moula for a pair of her own decks and started rocking house parties. Before long, Charlie was presenting her own radio show called ‘Soulicious’ on Bondi FM and wrote reviews and articles for Oyster and hip hop magazines. This opened the doors to dj’ing at many of Sydney’s fave pubs and late night hot spots.
Charlie has also worked with Australia’s most influential music businesses, this includes many years as Music Director at SBA Music, producing custom music playlists for corporate clients. Her music consulting and curating talent led to a role with Universal Music Publishing in the sync team, working alongside advertising agencies and music supervisors for film & TV placement. She’s a bonafide music lover, weaving in and out of genres in her sets, whether it’d be soul, disco, electronic through to dancehall vibes.
We LOOOOVE Charlie, and she's a regular face at many big gay parties, like Heaps Gay and a regular at The Bearded Tit. If you find yourself being unable to control your movements due to sweet sweet tunes, it's probably cos she's spinning.
There is no DOUBT that we will be front and centre while Charlie
cranks out some soul, funk and 90s-20s beats!!
