They began in the late 1990s, putting on various underground parties/nights. Between 2000 and 2006, they booked such Sydney clubs and venues as the Spanish, Mandarin, Taxi and Teachers Clubs.

Around 2003, Popfrenzy started to bring overseas acts to Australia as well establishing their own record label. The first two releases were from Camera Obscura and Les Savy Fav.
