Renowned UK techno and house-music DJ Carl Cox has announced that he will perform a pair of shows on Australian shores in April next year as part of his travelling Pure event.

The genre-crossing electronic veteran will play his first show in Sydney, at the Hordern Pavilion, on Saturday 23 April, heading down to Melbourne's Shed 14 the following weekend to perform on Saturday 30 April.

Cox has been a stalwart fixture of the British house and techno scenes since the 1980s, having released four albums — starting with 1996's At The End Of The Cliche and running through 2011's All Roads Lead To The Dancefloor — alongside myriad singles and near-countless remixes. In addition to heading up two labels in the form of Intec Records and 23rd Century Records, Cox remains an acclaimed performer among the global electro community, even carrying the kind of clout that affords him his own stage, Carl Cox & Friends, each year at events such as Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Global Gathering and Electric Daisy Carnival. 

He'll be joined for his Pure Australian shows by a yet-to-be-revealed line-up of supports, with ticket on-sale dates to follow in February. In the interim, pop on some Carl in your living room and have yourself a house party until you can get out and amongst it come April next year.
