SYDNEY & PERTH SHOWS
The 20-year-old creator of ‘Melbourne Bounce’, Will Sparks is on an unstoppable rise – in 2013 he morphed from a hometown favourite into an international star. With a six-month stint (35 shows in 30 cities) in the USA and a seven-week tour of Europe under his belt, recent hit ‘Ah Yeah’ hit #3 on Beatport, while a remix of ‘Hello’ took the top spot. Almost half a million people streamed his latest Soundcloud mix (listen here). With his debut longplayer set for release in early 2014, Will Sparks’ career is climbing to dizzying new heights.
BRISBANE & MELBOURNE SHOWS
Also hailing from Melbourne is Joel Fletcher, who got his start at just 14 and began spinning discs at club residencies only two years later. You can hear Joel’s beats on releases via dance record labels such as Bush, Boo, Bosphorus Underground, Flat Belly and Italo Business, while his remixes are all over the Beatport charts – including his take on Orkestrated’s ‘Robots’ (which reached #29) and Top 10 originals ‘Bugging Device’ and ‘China Town’. His latest offering, ‘Swing’, has hit the upper echelon of iTunes (listen here).
New World Sound
Together, they’re known as New World Sound (all cities). Brothers Tyrone and Jesse Taylor, 19 and 21, are dominating dancefloors thanks to their banging sound – with first release ‘Peak’ finding fans like Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and David Guetta. October 2012 delivered dubstep anthem ‘Bantam’, while June 2013’s ‘Aye’ saw the pair signed to Avicii’s very own label, LE7ELS. Vibe magazine meanwhile recently chose them as one of their “30 DJs To Watch in 2014”, while new track ‘Flute’ with Thomas Newson (listen here) went viral thanks to a clever YouTube video, and quickly racked up over five million views.
SYDNEY & MELBOURNE SHOWS
If you like progressive electro and funk, then “dirty disco” maker Throttle (Sydney & Melbourne) is the guy for you. The fresh-faced talent has just remixed Avicii’s ‘You Make Me’ (check it out here on Hype Machine), with the track currently sitting at #9 on Beatport’s Electro chart after premiering on Rolling Stone US. Hardwell is a fan, while website Earmilk recently included him in their 100th Mashup Monday.

SWEDISH GIANT'S TRUE TOUR TO VISIT AUSTRALIA IN JANUARY 2014!
He’s the world’s biggest DJ, a 23-year-old record-breaking superstar. Future Music and Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce Sweden’s Avicii will bring his monumental True Tour to Australia in January 2014!
“I’m so excited to be back in Australia for my first solo headline tour. The Australian crowd is amazing and I can’t wait for the shows.”
Easily the most in-demand DJ on the planet, Avicii’s latest single, “Hey Brother”, is at radio now. Having debuted at #12 on the ARIA Dance chart, it’s the third song to be lifted from Avicii’s critically acclaimed debut album, True. Released in September 2013 to praise across the globe, True launched at #2 on the ARIA Album Charts, #5 on the US Billboard 200, and #2 in the UK.
The first single taken from the LP, “Wake Me Up”, reached #1 in a staggering 70 countries, with over six million singles sold worldwide to date. For six weeks the song held the #1 spot on the ARIA Single Charts with 6x platinum sales, also reaching #1 on iTunes. Second single “You Make Me” debuted at #12 on the ARIA Singles Chart. To date Avicii’s combined lyric and music videos on YouTube have been viewed over 250 million times, while here in Australia Avicii has sold over one million singles.
What this self-taught EDM legend has achieved in just a few years is astonishing. Tim Bergling was still at high school in Stockholm when his made-in-the-bedroom remixes gained the attention of club promoters. Championed by the likes of Tiësto and Pete Tong (a teenage Avicii winning Tong’s fiercely competitive ‘Fast Trax’), his melodic, innovative style soon led to remixes for Little Boots, Robyn and Dizzee Rascal. But it was Avicii’s first instrumental release, “Seek Bromance”, which shot him to international superstardom, a massive hit across Europe, the UK and beyond.
“From the moment he took the stage, Avicii twisted the knob that controls drama up to 11...” – The Washington Post
In the years to follow Avicii’s headlined Ultra Music Festival with Madonna, completed a 27 date, $1 million charity tour in the US (Avicii and manager Ash Pournouri personally donating funds), embarked on an exclusive collaboration with Ralph Lauren (titled Denim & Supply – making him the first artist ever to become the face of the fashion house), undertaken one of the biggest EDM arena world tours to date and cracked the Top 10 in 18 countries with True.
Delivering track after track of innovative hits, Avicii’s singles – like “Seek Bromance”, “My Feelings For You”, “Fade Into Darkness” and “Silhouettes” – just keep coming.
Back in 2011 Avicii landed a Best Dance Recording Grammy nomination for “Sunshine”, his collaboration with David Guetta. Then came “LE7ELS”, an absolute monster, which turned an Etta James sample into a 3x platinum single in Australia, also rocketing into the Top 10 in India, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, New Zealand, the Netherlands, the US, the UK and beyond.
In 2012 Avicii dropped “2 Million” (a nod to the number of Facebook followers he’d amassed... and quickly surpassed) and “I Could Be The One”. He became the very first DJ to ever headline New York City’s legendary Radio City Music Hall.
In 2013 he blew away perceptions at Miami’s Ultra Fest, teamed up with pop legends Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (ABBA) to create the anthem to the Eurovision Song Contest, before delivering his debut LP in September.
Last here as headliner for 2012’s Good Life and Future Music Festival, after wowing fans across the globe throughout 2013 Avicii will bring his full True Tour set-up down under in January. Avicii’s stunning three hour live sets are a sensory assault of beats, 3D mapping, LED and amazing projections, a fizzy celebration of his emotional, wide-reaching 4/4 anthems.
“His headline sets at Future Music Festival and Good Life at the start of the year were mind-blowing, and we’re thrilled to be presenting his immense, full live stage production this January.”
– Brett Robinson, Future Music
