History of Sweetchilli

Formed in 2000, Sweetchilli Events is run by Crispin Kerr, Daniel Crocetti & Carlos Zarate. Their hard work and forward thinking over 10 years helped establish Sweetchilli as one of the leading promotional teams in Australia’s electronic music scene.With over 25 years combined experience in event promotion, coupled with Daniel’s skill as a graphic artist, Sweetchilli is a dynamic team with a track record of promoting highly successful and quality dance oriented events and DJ tours.

Sweetchilli specialised in promoting music events & club nights throughout Sydney with an emphasis on quality music, attention to detail and professionalism.
Over the years, Sweetchilli was invited to team with major clubbing brands including Melbourne’s Future Entertainment (Future Music Festival, Two Tribes), Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, Pacha & Renaissance.

The company evolved significantly in later years. When a touring arm was introduced in late 2004 raising the company’s profile worldwide. We are proud of our longterm association with Melbourne based distribution and production company Stomp, handling the Australasian tours for the world renowned Balance compilation series for several years.
Artists including Paolo Mojo, Steve Porter, Desyn Masiello, Luke Fair, John Askew, Slacker, Petter Lexicon Avenue, Jimmy Van M & Dave Seaman, Abe Duque have all enjoyed successful tours managed by Sweetchilli.Visit the past events section section for a list of all past Sweetchilli event and tours.

Sweetchilli wound down at the beginning of 2010, as Crispin and Daniel decided to take some time out from weekly events. Carlos Zarate continues his work in the scene now with his successful Thug records label and Thug Nights Events. Daniel works in advertising and still plays occasionally at events around Sydney and Crispin has had 2 Daughters since then, so things are really different.

Looking forward, we hope to put on a few exclusive parties, and play a few gigs, and hopefully the reunion party you keep asking for will come together soon. We are rebuilding our website to realign it with what we are doing now, making it a place to come to relive some of the sweetchilli memories from the past 10 years, also to let you know those special nights when we are playing around town.
