THANK YOU ALL FOR THE BEST BIRTHDAY WE COULD EVER WISH FOR! NEVER LOSE THAT FEELING.
When had our first Poptart party, we weren’t sure how many months the party could last. Nine years on, Poptart has turned into the craziest night I’ve ever been involved in, and it’s the fuel that keeps me going and looking forward to playing music for a crowd who actually turn up to enjoy music that they know and are open-minded enough to look forward to unfamiliar new stuff.
For that, I am very grateful for the support we’ve garnered so far, as well as very happy that there are kids out there that actually strive to be individuals and express themselves in a manner not seduced by the mass media. You guys are the best crowd in the world.
We’re as simple as a party can get- we play music, you come have a drink and enjoy yourself. We don’t promise of fireworks or dancing cowgirls or celebrity appearances. That’s what makes me happy, it’s more pure and PLUR than anything I’ve experienced in my life. Thank you for the 9 years!
Enjoy this mixtape.

Dress Code: Never lose that feline!
Poptart pulls out all the stops to throw a super awesome bash to mark our ninth year riding the magic Rock n Roll bus. Summon your inner cat and get your fix of nine years of Pop, Punk, Alternative, Postrock, Twee, Electro, Rock & Britpop goodies, and a little catnip won’t do any harm either.
Taking the party up a notch on this joyous occasion are the lovely keyboard lasses of Au Revoir Simone who will be joining the party with a special live performance.
Fresh from releasing their fourth album Move in Spectrums after a four year hiatus from the critically acclaimed Still Night, Still Light, Au Revoir Simone are known for their dreamy Pop, their love for vintage keyboards and drum machines, and most recently, for being David Lynch’s favourite band.
Their wonderful creation of ethereal electronic Pop music full of dreamy melodies and angelic vocals stirs much emotion in their audiences as much as it brings joy to their lives.
Consisting of members Erika Forster, Annie Hart, Heather D’Angelo, let the band’s lush sounds and emotive rhythms pull some heartstrings and leave you with a little longing and a wistful love aplenty!
