HAHA Industries (2005-2016)
Starting out a collective of five friends from across the globe (Scotland, Canada, Los Angeles, Sydney), and making a lot of noise with a stream of house parties in Surry Hills, they converted living rooms and share houses into intimate DJ booths and dance spaces. With no name or profile they took that attitude and shifted it to producing events in an attempt to introduce unique party experiences to the city, thus becoming HAHA Industries.
Eleven years later they delivered a long list of club nights, warehouse parties, boat parties, beach parties, tours and DJ supports of artists intenationally and locally remowned along with festival and community affiliations across Sydney & Melbourne.
DJ’s Dean Dixon & Dave Fernandes, resident DJ’s and co-promoters of HAHA Industries. With a fetish for vinyl and rotary mixers, their music policy was simple - to play music that will make you move.
