More The Presets More The Presets

Iconic Australian electronic duo The Presets have announced a behemoth 20-date DJ tour to celebrate 20 years of delivering banger after banger to our airwaves. 

Forming in 2003, The Presets started out in small clubs around the Sydney area before releasing their album, their second album, Apocalypso, which earned them an ARIA for Album Of The Year, and featured breakout single My People, which is still beloved around clubs today. 

Since then, The Presets' live show has grown into an audio-visual spectacle that’s dominated festival main stages around the world, but a recent visit to a legendary Sydney nightclub where the duo cut their teeth inspired the guys to celebrate their anniversary by going back to where it all began.

On the tour, Kim Moyes, one half of the duo, explains, “We’ve been lucky enough to play the biggest stages and festivals in the world over the past 20 years, but nothing compares to the buck-wild intensity of an intimate party. They are an entirely different beast and we can’t wait to unleash over these 20 nights.

“DJing in small clubs is a whole different experience to performing our usual live show on the big stage with the lights and visuals and things like that”, adds Julian. “It is more freewheeling and immediate - we feed off the energy of the crowd, weaving our own tracks in with classic jams by our favourite artists. So it’s a 20 years celebration of not only our music, but also all the incredible tunes that inspire us. Plus, we get a chance to throw in a few unreleased surprises too.”
