Foodies and music lovers unite as today Secret Sounds is thrilled to announce Supper Club, a new event series igniting the collaboration of your favourite musicians with some of Australia’s most outstanding chefs, mixologists, wine purveyors and food critics!
Part of the Sydney Solstice program, in partnership with the NSW Government via Destination NSW, the series celebrates the hand in hand nature of the hospitality and entertainment industries. Think themed nights pairing delicious eats and drinks with the sounds of some of the country’s best artists. The events have each been lovingly curated by the artists and hospitality team for an unforgettable experience of food, drink and music, all tied together by a meaningful concept unique to the artists involved.
Legendary singer-songwriter Archie Roach and Australian icon Mark Olive aka ‘The Black Olive’ will come together for a night of storytelling when they present ‘Music and Food for the Soul’. Guests will enjoy a menu of gourmet Australian Indigenous Cuisine, carefully created by Mark Olive, paired with songs and stories from the much-beloved Archie Roach. Join two of Australia’s legends for one special evening as they tell the story of their people and land through music and food.
The ‘Food for the Music and Soul’ ticket includes:
Conversation: The night will be MC’d by Australian icon Mark Olive aka ‘The Black Olive’
Food: A three-course meal curated by Mark Olive using Australian Indigenous ingredients and cooking methods
Music: Two unforgettable sets by legendary singer-songwriter Archie Roach
Then step into the cucina for Dinner at Nonna’s on Saturday 12 June hosted by Donny Benet and Toby Stansfield. Get down to Mr Experience as Donny teleports you back in time with his smooth 80s post-disco sounds and pays homage to his Italian heritage and love of Italo disco. Combine Donny’s tunes with the fresh produce, and delicious handmade pasta and sauces of Toby Stansfield, head chef of Fabbrica Pasta Shop, topped with thoughtfully selected minimal intervention Italian wine, and you’ve got yourself one perfect Italian feast! Another Negroni please…
The ‘Dinner at Nonna’s’ ticket includes:
Drink: One of Nonna’s favourite aperitifs on arrival
Food: A three-course homestyle Italian feast curated by Toby Stansfield head chef at Fabbrica Pasta Shop

Ten Hats will be taking the concept of BRUNCH and putting a fur coat on it, served up with the party-starting hyperactive beats of CLYPSO on Sunday 13 June. Infamous for throwing dream, one-off dinner parties around Sydney, Ten Hats is the passion project of four familiar faces in the local hospitality and nightlife scene: Anna Ugarte-Carral (The Old Fitz, Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year 2020), Elizabeth Mitchell (Alberto’s Lounge), Ella Stening (Native Drops) and Maddison Costello (Sidehustle DJs). Combining boujee breakky snacks on the dancefloor, AM-inspired cocktails and CLYPSO’s grimy basslines – plus very special guests already planning to crash the party – this event is sure to change the way you feel about the humble Sunday brunch forever.
The ‘Brunch’ ticket includes:
Drink: Two signature breakfast inspired cocktails designed by Ella Stening (Native Drops)
Food: Boujee breakfast snacks made to be consumed on the dancefloor by Anna Ugarte-Carral (The Old Fitz) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Alberto’s Lounge)
Music: Special performances by CLYPSO, Ben Fester and a surprise DJ guest
Continue your long weekend shenanigans when The Dip returns for one night only on Sunday 13 June. Opened by Andrew and Bianca Levins in 2011, The Dip was a restaurant inside the legendary Goodgod Small Club. Serving up the perfect nightclub eats – burgers, hot dogs and Southern BBQ – it was one of Sydney’s first American style diners. Levins is making a rare return to the kitchen to celebrate ten years of The Dip and invited some of his good friends to join, including Mitch Orr (Pilu, ex-ACME), Clayton Wells (Automata) and Mike Eggert (Totti’s/Pinbone), who will be making their own signature hot dogs, exclusively for the night. Burn it all it off on the dancefloor with a huge lineup of DJs who used to frequent The Dip and Goodgod Small Club, including a reunion of HOOPS, Halfway Crooks (Levins and Captain Franco), Joyride, Ariane, Charlie Chux and more.
The ‘Dip’ ticket includes:
Food between 5-8pm: The Dip’s signature dishes created by Andrew Levins; hot wings, grilled corn and the infamous ‘The Lev’s Dawg’ along with signature hot dogs from Mitch Orr (Pilu, ex-ACME), Clayton Wells (Automata) and Mike Eggert (Totti’s/Pinbone)
Music: Sets by The Dip and Goodgod Small Club regulars, including a reunion of HOOPS, Halfway Crooks, Joyride, Ariane, Charlie Chux and more!
