The world’s #1 DJ-Producer and poster child superstar DJ of EDM lovers will hit Brisbane with a bang: Hardwell comes down under with the I AM Hardwell Tour to the Riverstage, Brisbane, Sunday, October 5 (2014).
Dutch wunderkind Robbert van de Corput has been flying a steady incline to stardom. Since cutting his DJ teeth behind the decks in clubs before legally even being able to enter their doors as a patron, he has also worked at his production magic, unleashing an excess of hits until 2013’s DJ Mag’s Top100 saw him take out the top spot as the world’s #1 DJ. Working alongside music luminaries from Tiesto to Rhianna, Krewella and even The Prodigy has seen his name stay in lights at the top of charts across the world. And as a main stage regular for the world’s premium festivals from Creamfields to Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music and Amsterdam Music Festival and most recently at Future Music, Hardwell’s star continues to shine brightly – certainly bright enough for a solo tour that sees him traverse the East Coast of Australia. This tour will also be a highly anticipated follow up to the recent release of Hardwell Presents Revealed Volume 5; a compilation album brimming with his customary big-room, electro and progressive house sounds.
And basking in Hardwell’s light will be fellow Breda compatriot Producer-DJ Kill The Buzz. With a complimentary sound to Hardwell’s banging euphoric sets, Kill The Buzz will likely negotiate the thin lines between electro and progressive house, his big room sound intertwining with progressive drops and saturated with plenty of synths; all set to keep the teeth on edge while nicely warming up the Riverstage.
For I Am Hardwell, expect plenty of wow factor and production as heavy as a Hardwell bassline for a dance party rivalling that of Avicii and Tiesto. The renowned Dutch touch is sure to saturate every aspect of this gig: extraordinary visuals, premium sound production and a three-hour set flowing from progressive house, tech and big room through to EDM with plenty of hard beats and prolonged drops thrown in for good measure. This will be the ultimate outdoor dance party, featuring in the thick of October from the heart of The City with The Riverstage, Brisbane a truly sublime setting.
