Playground Weekender gleans inspiration from boutique camping festivals such as Bestival, Big Chill, Latitude and Electric Picnic Festival and is set in the spectacular surrounds of the Del Rio Riverside Resort, Wisemans Ferry, just 1 hours north of Sydney.

Crazy P (previously infamously known as Crazy Penis) has never been a band swayed by the latest trends. Theyve stuck to their guns and let the world catch up with their unique sound. They are undeniably DISCO and have unintentionally found themselves as part of the recent renaissance that has crossed the Atlantic from New York City and now sit alongside Hercules & Love Affair and Escort as a band that can cut it live

Only a small handful of dance acts can put on a proper live performance and Crazy P are part of this unique group. Theyre a band that gets the party started (surviving sound failures, streaking naked across festival campsites and winding up at numerous after-parties) with headline performances at The Playground Weekender, The Big Chill, Good Vibrations in Sydney, The Sydney Festival, Dance Village at Glastonbury, The Garden Festival in Croatia, plus also having supported Faithless on their 2005 stadium tour across the globe.

Crazy Ps pedigree as recording artists is clearly documented by three superb previous albums - their first two classics A Nice Hot Bath With and The Wicked Is Music on Paper Recordings and their album Night on Earth on Shiva, which sold over 20,000 copies.

The latter proved to be a massive step up for the band, making them bona fide stars in Australia, New Zealand and the UK as well as cementing their reputation as highly respected songwriters. Pete Tong became a huge fan and rotated the singles constantly on Radio One and invited the band to record a live session in the Maida Vale Studios. Singles 'Sun Science' and Lady T went on to become Ibizan sunset and festival classics and found their way into countless compilations.

Crazy P latest offering Stop Space Return, spawning from Ralph Lawsons funk laced house label 20:20 Vision Recordings captures the sound of a band at their peak and effortlessly blends their influences of classic NYC House, 70's funk & disco, soul instrumentation, pop melodies, electronica* *and* *sun kissed beats to delicious effect.
