Popfrenzy began late in the summer of ‘99, when founder Chris Wu crossed paths with two unlucky Japanese DJs and a Jamaican junkie outside a late night Kings Cross venue. The unconventional has continued to drive and define the nature of all Popfrenzy events, tours and releases. From humble beginnings as party planners for all of Sydney’s cool/geek/indie elite, Popfrenzy has become synonymous with good events, having organised everything from comic book launches and movie fundraisers to prom nights and harbour cruises; each time seeking out new and unusual venues; taking the dedicated Popfrenzy followers from pubs to clubs, warehouses, cafes, backyards, rooftops and even to family restaurants.
Over the past ten years, Popfrenzy has been responsible for some of the most fun-filled and successful tours in Australia, having brought to our shores Blonde Redhead, Deerhunter, Best Coast, Electrelane, Les Savy Fav, Gossip, Camera Obscura, Kimya Dawson, Metronomy, CSS and many, many more. Coexisting with POPFRENZY PRESENTS, is POPFRENZY RECORDS. The Popfrenzy team expertly hunts down undiscovered gems from around the world, in every genre, from lo-fi dream pop to angular art-punk to the plain, down and dirty punk. Recently, Popfrenzy has released albums from the likes of Neon Indian, Best Coast, Of Montreal, Black Mountain, The Juan Maclean, Matt & Kim, The Drums and local artists like Songs, Seekae and kyü.
Popfrenzy celebrated ten years since putting on it's very first night in 2009!!
