Gallery: Happy Mag’s 5th Birthday by James Mott

Last Friday night Happy Mag celebrated our 5th Birthday, inviting over 20 artists for a top-to-bottom takeover of the iconic Kings Cross Hotel. The party raged from 7pm through ’til close and to be honest, some of us are still feeling it.

Sydney photographer James Mott was there on the night to capture some action on the hotel’s ground floor, The JMC Academy Stage. Check it out below.

The night featured live performances from the likes of The Goon Sax, C.O.F.F.I.NDro Carey, Brightness, Baby Beef, Sunscreen, and way more. Not to mention the DJs who kept the tunes spinning all over, including Pablo, DJ Goodboy, and others.

Happy Mag’s 5th Birthday marked the opening night of Bacardi and Kings Cross Hotel’s Summer of Music 2.0, a stacked live music program running through the silly season until a massive closing party on March 14th, 2020.
