Gear up for our Issue 16 launch with this disco playlist curated by Salarymen

Happy Mag Issue 16 is nearly here, and we’re launching our sexiest issue ever tomorrow night (Friday, July 22) at The Bank Hotel.

If you love live music (and love it even more when it’s completely free), head down to The Bank Hotel tomorrow night from 8pm tomorrow night for the launch party of Happy Mag Issue 16: The Sex Issue.

Legendary Sydney duo Salarymen will be kicking off the live music on the night, and they’ve curated the prefect playlist to prep you for the evening of festivities.


Describing the playlist of certified slappers, Salarymen set the scene: “It’s Friday 5pm. You’ve just knocked off work after a week of hell and you’re keen to get lit with your buddies.

“Live music is back in Sydney and you’re getting ready to head out to a show. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO LISTEN TO? ‘The Super fun disco party time playlist’ curated by us!

“This playlist comes with a 100% guarantee of hip shaking and shimmying, featuring all your favourite artists. We’ve got local legends like Donny Benet, Parcels and Tame Impala, sprinkled in with some vintage power pop courtesy of Michael Jackson, Talking Heads and Stevie Wonder, and some modern bangers from Gorillaz and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

“These tracks go together like fine wine and cheese – if the dopamine doesn’t flood your veins, you may need to see a doctor.”

Happy Mag Issue 16 is now available for pre-order. Grab all the finer details for the issue launch and RSVP on the Facebook event.

Happy’s launch party is sponsored by Brookvale Union, our fave brewing company and the legends behind Australia’s leading ginger beer! The party kicks off at 8pm, so come on down, grab a can of Brookvale’s best, enjoy some killer live tunes, and be among the first to get your mitts on a copy of our new mag. Entry is free, so bring your mates. See you on Friday!
