Locally, The Presets will head to the Torquay Hotel on 13 July and 19 August.

Due to overwhelming demand for tickets, Sydney electronic kings The Presets have just added more dates to their huge national DJ tour in celebration of their 20th anniversary.

Spanning July, August, and September, the ’20 Years 20 Nights’ tour will take the duo across the East Coast with various stops in the likes of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns, Torquay, and Sydney before jetting over to Darwin where they’ll finish the tour in September. With multiple dates already sold out, the duo have added two extra Sydney shows, extra shows in Melbourne and Torquay, as well as adding a stop in Perth to the tour.

Armed with a huge DJ set, they’ll be playing at small clubs and bars, reconnecting with the electric spirit that got them making music in the first place.

In 2003 two young Sydneysiders started making beats together at their inner-city studio. They began by banging out DJ sets in small clubs, testing out tracks they’d made together at home alongside tunes that were inspiring them at the time.

In the 20 years since, The Presets’ live show has grown into an audio-visual behemoth 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.

Special guests will appear each night, handpicked by The Presets to create a series of one off events.
