About the Event

CRANK is back! V3…..fine we will go again.

CRANK takes over the Flinders Hotel Saturday 19th August for another rave.

CRANK V3 presents Naarms Luke Hovey. Luke is an undeniable presence in the Australian electronic music scene, rapidly making his mark as a rising star. Based in Naarm, Luke is a highly sought-after DJ known for his exceptional talent across various genres. His versatile sets encompass techno, harder house, old school hard house, and psytrance, showcasing his ability to seamlessly blend and mix tracks with unparalleled skill.

Luke's reputation as a standout artist continues to grow as he headlines shows in Melbourne and other states throughout Australia. He is a regular fixture at renowned venues including Xe54, Revolver Upstairs, Sub Club, and New Guernica, where he consistently delivers electrifying performances that captivate the crowd.

A testament to Luke's talent and recognition within the industry, he has had the privilege of supporting esteemed DJs such as FRANCK, HAAi, and DJ Boring. One particular highlight was his highly acclaimed b2b set with Mark Blair during a sold-out Revolver Sundays event, leaving a lasting impression on both fellow artists and enthusiastic audiences.

In addition to his exceptional abilities behind the decks, Luke Hovey is also a skilled producer. His music has received support and recognition from influential figures in the industry, including Patrick Mason, Narcisssssss, and Bad Boombox, among others. Luke's dedication to his craft, his unmatched mixing skills, and his ability to traverse diverse genres make him a force to be reckoned with in the Australian electronic music scene, and his ascent shows no signs of slowing down.

CRANK V3 Main support are Naarms Aqua-X  & Dharawal/Wollongongs Power duo Sekta

AQUA- X is an artist who has built herself a powerful reputation for her hard techno library.

Experimentation with the sounds of 90s Rave, Hard Techno, and old school Hardstyle - Aqua-X brings a new journey of sound to the Naarm scene.

Having played at well loved clubs such as Xe54 and New Guernica, Aqua-X is quickly making herself a household name around Naarm and with the anticipation of her new EP said to release in mid to late June, we can’t wait to see what else she can bring to the table.

Emerging with force from Wollongong/Dharawal is duo ‘SEKTA’!

2021 saw the two solo artists join forces to create the high energy project SEKTA.

Known for their fast tempo selections of heavy and euphoric trancey techno sounds the duo set crowds into a frenzy.

Emerging through their hometown of Wollongong/Dharawal the duo have hosted their own ‘SEKTA SESSIONS’ parties shaping the local scene with unforgettable SOLD OUT shows. 

The duo haven’t stopped there with SEKTA playing to crowds across Gold Coast, Jindabyne, Newcastle and Sydney.

SEKTA are rising fast and continue to add original music and fresh ideas to their arsenal which shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

CRANK V3 would love to further announce our supporting acts
