Melbourne’s premier dance party focused on cyberpunk and tech culture has returned with seductively sanginous intensity! We’re bringing two amazing talents from interstate for you to really sink your cyber-fangs into. Headlining the blood rave is Australia’s very own Alicia May, the host of the Cyber Vampire Club on Twitch from Sydney and Netrunner-tunage support is Xyb3rjunk from Canberra. Do not sleep on this event, either; as if the lineup isn’t enough, you might just be able to get your hands on some official wearable tech launching on the night!
Laser Highway parties are safe and radically inclusive events for people of all walks of life. We’re dedicated to presenting the nano-wire edge of alternative electronic music: soft, hard, light or dark. We take inspiration from nostalgia, fantasy, science-fiction, video games and more with high production values and a robust visual style in splashes of vibrant sound and colour. We encourage our patrons to express themselves in however they feel comfortable as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others. Tech-wearables, cool (safe) props and all the neon LEDs, EL Wire and clothing encouraged.
ALICIA MAY (NSW)
Alicia Mayhem is no stranger to the world of dirty electronic music. You might have seen her tearing the PA a new one as the vocalist in SNVFF, flanked by monstergirls at Yokai Beatz, causing havoc with Sydney’s Rave Cave crew or bringing her bisexual tiefling energy to killer queer nights like Sparkle Party. She’s the host of Cyber Vampire Club, the thirstiest place to dance on Twitch, and is the resident DJ for Sydney’s sexy new underground fetish club, Reunion.

# Caution : By installing this product, you have agreed to assimilate into the dance machine.
Xyb3rjunk : An entity named after a self-critical trashy taste in cyberpunk. They have DJed at various alternative clubs across Canberra and Sydney, such as Oh My Goth, Elektrocute, Incursion and Vamp. Playing bangers which twist definitions of genres and mashups are featured in this product.
The latest version of midtempo chonk will be installed when Xyb3rjunk is run at Laser Highway.
Babel has been producing and mixing synth wave, outrun, and electro since 2008. Most recognisable from the wearable tech he wears to Laser Highway, his sound fuses the 80’s neon future with classic cyberpunk themes, always with a heavy beat and lots of drama.
Zerotonine is the host, resident DJ and runs Australia’s first monthly club night dedicated to synthwave, outrun and retro electro: Laser Highway in Naarm (Melbourne). As a labour of love, he is dedicated to providing a unique experience for music makers and fans alike.
A veteran DJ and creator for over 15 years playing too many genres internationally and at home in Australia, he is in love with arpeggio basslines, warm synths, and driving drums; his style is inspired by 80’s movies, the Lamborghini Countach, boss fights, neon vectors, keytars, androids, reverb guitars, gated drums, cosmic phenomena, bleeps and bloops.
Expect a range of sonic styles to get your feet stomping, head rocking and heart pumping from all corners of the retro-verse.
Laser Highway respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners of the land that this event takes place. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
