Things to do in New Zealand, Book Here
Australia might be in the midst of a chilly winter, but the legendary Darude is set to heat things up by heading back Down Under this August, as super keen fans may have noticed when he dropped a bunch of international dates on his Facebook page last week.
Famed for the global platinum-selling smash ‘Sandstorm’, Darude is recognised by many as one of the most influential artists to emerge from the dance scene in the past decade. With a DJ style that is a mixture of progressive and uplifting trance, fused with elements of tech, breaks and house, Darude’s music delivers a dynamic energy that gets any dancefloor moving.
With over 15 years touring the world, including being a regular visitor to Australian shores over the past few years, Darude’s résumé of accolades is a testament to the exponential growth of his profile as an international artist. Over the years he’s won a number of prestigious awards such as 2 x German Dance Awards, a Dance Star Award, a USA Golden Turntable DJ Award and 3 x Finnish Grammy Awards. His name has also appeared in numerous public-voted polls with previous entries in Top 100 DJs Poll and America’s Favourite DJ.
More recently, Darude completed his fourth artist album ‘Moments’. This new project saw Darude deliver an album of both song-led and club focused records, including the emotive and trancey sounds he’s become so synonymous with. The first single taken from the album ‘Beautiful Alien’, was released to widespread acclaim, whilst his ‘Moments’ album tour saw him play 10 dates in North America and Canada, concluding with a headline show at the first annual TwitchCon event in San Francisco alongside special guest deadmau5.
Having established himself as DJ for the people, continually wowing club crowds around the world and releasing some of the biggest dance anthems ever produced, it is a testament to Darude’s popularity that he remains one of the scene’s most in demand artists – so don’t miss his 2017 Australia and New Zealand tour.
