As you may be aware the biggest DJ in the world is coming to town, yes one-man DJ phenomenon Tiësto is holding his very own event in the beautiful environs of Victoria Park on 31st July and it’s about to get even bigger! His show is the biggest open air headline show by any DJ this year.
He’s already roped in two of the most exciting names in the business to guarantee a truly un-missable event with electro pop chart-topper Calvin Harris as his main support and electro-soul-funkateers Sneaky Sound System third on the bill. Now, we are delighted to announce that Hadouken! complete the bill.
Those galloping pioneers Hadouken! burst onto the scene in 2007 with their hot-tempered mix of fluorescent colours, indie guitar music and grime creating a genre of their own in the process – ‘Grindie’. Everyone from the NME ‘This band is the Future’ to Mixmag ‘The Prodigy’s energy, Dizzee’s vocal delivery and Bloc Party’s indie-dance’ fell in love with them. With Mixtapes created on USB sticks and guerrilla video premieres their innovation blew minds – Hell, they even created their own summer festival for 10,000 people! And this summer see’s their very welcome return as they add yet another dimension to the event of the summer!
Away from the mainstage now and Last.fm and Don’t Stay In have come aboard to curate their own areas. 'The Don't Stay In Dance Floor' is where the UK's largest online club network presents London's Lost Souls. Domimik Eulberg (Cocoon & Traum) headlines the area while in close support are the DJ’s from Wet Yourself and Fabric residents. While, The Last.fm DJ Team will be hosting an All Dayer in their Last.fm Presents arena playing a selection of music from Last.fm’s hype chart; expect anything and everything from electro, house and techno to italo disco, booty bass and indie rock!
And let’s not forget the main event itself. As Tiësto continues to wow the crowds around the world, in particular with his record-breaking residency at Privilege in Ibiza, where he performs to over 8,000 ravers each Monday, in preparation for this show. The Victoria Park patrons can expect to be treated to a no expense spared, iridescent live show that will transform into a fantastical celebrations of dance music itself. Visuals will ascend to another level, lightshows will beam out as if into space, and of course Tiësto’s wondrously euphoric brand of dance is sure to reduce the audience to a sweaty frenzy.
