KFC partners with Luude to open a nightclub

The event will also feature a new menu created with the Aussie music producer.

KFC is partnering with ARIA-winning producer Luude to open a secret new nightclub in Sydney, the Fried Side Club, and to launch a new Secret Menu item, Luude’s Zinger Sliders.

Happening for one night only on 21 October, the doors will open from 8 PM to 3 AM. Tickets to the nightclub will be available via Moshtix starting 4 October. The address of the nightclub will be revealed 48 hours before the event.

"KFC has been a staple on the diet forever - so when they reached out to partner on a project, I was 100% keen. We're setting up a secret club that is a replica KFC store, you've even got to go through the fridge to get in - it's sounding wicked. They've also let me create a Secret Menu item, so you'll be able to ask for Luude Zinger Sliders all over Australia. A childhood dream collab,” Luude said.

Arriving fresh off his latest release, TMO (Turn Me On), Luude entered the charts and into the nation’s hearts in 2021 with his remix of the iconic Men at Work anthem, Down Under, coming in at #65 in the 2021 Hottest 100 and is set to drop a set list packed with more heat than Supercharged Sauce for attendees. But where? Well for now that’s a secret, but ticket holders will need to locate the new central Sydney KFC “restaurant” and enter through the secret (fridge) door to get inside.

Aside from Luude, guests can expect Aussie artists Kinder and Foura to headline the dancefloor. Guests can also have Luude’s Zinger Sliders for free all night long.

For KFC and Luude fans keen on some new merch, there will also be KFC x Luude t-shirts and KFC sliders (the ones for your feet) on offer inside the Fried Side Club, with all merch and ticket sales supporting the KFC Youth Foundation and its charity partners: Black Dog Institute, ReachOut Australia and Whitelion. 

Those who miss out on tickets to the club can also pick up a groovy new KFC x Luude fit via the KFC Merch Store at kfcmerchstore.com.au.

“We are committed to supporting Australia’s music industry and nightlife and providing Aussies with the ultimate KFC experience. It’s so exciting to be partnering with such incredible local Aussie talent on what is sure to be a fantastic night out and we cannot wait to open the doors to our very first nightclub in Australia. We love to throw a gig, so we’re encouraging fans to grab their tickets, unleash their free spirits and embrace the fried side of life,” Tami Cunningham, CMO at KFC Australia, said.
