Flight Facilities Blast Sydney's Controversial Lockout Laws
Electronic producer duo Flight Facilities went off on Sydney’s lockout laws Wednesday (Feb. 10). Following alcohol-related incidents at Australian nightclubs, certain bars and clubs must now close their doors to patrons at 1:30 a.m. and stop selling alcohol by 3 a.m.
“Had these laws been in effect 10 years earlier, our music may never have existed,” the duo wrote in a Facebook post. “We’re being put into nappies and tucked into bed by a bunch of expired minds.”
The duo listed off various clubs that have been the site of milestones in their music careers, all of which have already been shut down since February 2014, when the laws were implemented.
