The Presets Celebrate 20 Years With 20 Nights DJing

Throughout the past two decades, The Presets have evolved their live performances into awe-inspiring audio-visual spectacles that have commanded festival main stages across the globe. However, a nostalgic pilgrimage to a renowned Sydney nightclub, reminiscent of the duo’s humble beginnings, sparked a powerful inspiration. In celebration of their anniversary, The Presets have decided to return to their roots, retracing the footsteps of their musical journey. They proudly announce an exhilarating series of 20 DJ sets across Australia, igniting intimate venues and bars with their infectious energy. By embarking on this adventure, The Presets rekindle the electrifying spirit that propelled them to create music in the first place, reigniting their connection with fans in an up-close and personal way.

“We’ve been lucky enough to play the biggest stages and festivals in the world over the past 20 years”, explains Kim Moyes“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.”

DJ Tour.  Don’t miss out on this unforgettable series of events, as each night brings special guest artists carefully handpicked by The Presets themselves.
