Throw your arms (and conducting batons) in the air and get ready to dance, because Synthony is returning with a killer Kiwi lineup and a New Zealand tour in 2020 and 2021.
It’s a unique combination of body-shaking electronic dance music anthems and the unbeatable might of a full orchestra. The show will feature some of the country’s best symphony orchestras performing in each city, conducted by Peter Thomas and hosted by DJ General Lee with guest DJs and performances by Jason Kerrison, Ria Hall, Cherie Mathieson, Nate Dousand and Lewis McCallum.
With an epic backdrop of visuals, lasers, and a state-of-the-art sound system, it’s a magical, uplifting, hands-in-the-air dance party like no other. This dance music celebration takes the audience on a journey, track after track, down memory lane to celebrate unforgettable bangers.
Synthony founder and producer Erika Amoore says she’s incredibly excited to bring Kiwis an outstanding musical showcase based on performances of the world’s best dance music, performed solely by homegrown musicians. “Given the circumstances, it’s amazing to be able to pull together the 200-plus local artists and crew that make these events happen. Even with our borders closed to international musicians, we have all the talent we need right here.”
Tickets go on sale August 5. You can pre-register for the on-sale announcement at the Synthony website.
