Untitled Group and Thick As Thieves have come together to announce an epic open-air gig for world-renowned American DJ & producer MK (Marc Kinchen).

MK, who’s just won an ARIA Award for Best Dance/Electronic Recording with Dom Dolla (for their collaborative track Rhyme Dust), couldn’t be returning to Australia at a better time. “Australia, it’s about time! Sign up at the link in bio,” MK wrote on Instagram yesterday, continuing in the comments, “Australia I missed you”.

Fans can catch MK at the Riviera Beach Club in St Kilda, Melbourne, on Saturday, 17 February 2024; the music will roll from 3 pm until 11 pm. You can sign up here to register for pre-sale access – pre-sale tickets will be available from 6 pm AEDT on Wednesday, 22 November. The general sale begins at 6 pm AEDT on Thursday, 23 November.

MK is being brought to Australia by the country’s largest independently owned music and events company, Untitled Group, who you know as the organisation behind Beyond The Valley, Pitch Music & Arts, Wildlands, Grapevine Gathering, Ability Fest and more. They’ve teamed up with Australian music agency Thick As Thieves for this upcoming event.

As well as his hit with Dom Dolla, MK has worked with and remixed an enormous number of collaborators, including Janet Jackson, Mary J Blige, Celine Dion, Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams, Will Smith and more.

Earlier this year, MK and Dom Dolla caught up with Purple Sneakers to discuss the viral nature of Rhyme Dust. On his initial thoughts about the track, MK said, “Dom started it, and we went through a lot of different versions.

“When he played me the first version, my initial reaction was that this is a monster. It’s funny because that version isn’t in the new version at all, but I just knew from the way it started, with Q-Tip’s voice, I knew it was going to work. From that time, going back and forth, we knew in the back of our heads this was going to be a strong record.”
