DEFECTED WORLD TOUR 2024
Music and parties are at the heart of everything we do, so what better way to celebrate our 25th birthday than by announcing 25 residencies in 25 countries over the next 12 months. Taking in countrywide tours, festivals, weekly runs and exclusive, cherry-picked shows, 2024 will be our busiest and biggest year ever on the road - we can’t wait for you to join us!
NEW PODCAST SERIES
The first episode of Defected's new podcast series, 'Moments In Music', drops in the coming weeks.
We’re always looking for ways to heighten the listening experience of our fans, and what better way to do this than launch our very own podcast series. Running alongside our radio show and hosted by resident DJ and presenter Monki, ‘Moments In Music’ will be your go to podcast to hear in-depth conversations with legends of house music and club culture.
Launching a brand new playlist celebrating 24 year’s worth of Defected Music year by year, updated and refreshed every two weeks with the forgotten classics, fan favourites, label anthems and underground hits.
Taking it right back to the start to kick it off, here is Defected Annual: 1999 - available to stream now.
IBIZA SEASON 2024
In a land far, far away, a new dancefloor awaits… Our epic Ibiza season will be heading to a new home for the summer, sign up to be the first to hear about our forthcoming debut residency.
As part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, we have created a unique concept fusing the history and future of Defected’s musical output. Simply titled Together, the series will include 25 brand new collaborative productions, some original and some remixes of Defected classics.
Old school meets new school for this concept, brought together with a limited-edition bespoke vinyl box set, digital releases, compilation and playlist later this year.
