This September Defected and Get Physical join forces on a series of collaborative live events, taking place in London, Ibiza and Berlin and featuring some of the biggest names in house and techno.
The Defected Get Physical Tour takes place over two weekends this September, with parties at Fire, London (12th), Amnesia, Ibiza (15th) and Chalet, Berlin (19th). Full line-ups for each of the parties can be found below.
The three parties are being held in the undisputed epicentres of the electronic music world, with performances from seminal artists from both the Defected and Get Physical camps.
Representing Defected, founder Simon Dunmore leads Juan MacLean, Riva Starr, Eddie Fowlkes and Luke Solomon, while Get Physical’s founders M.A.N.D.Y. and DJ T. appear along with Groove Armada, Tim Green and Paolo Rocco, all of whom have built strong affiliations with the label over the years. The For The Love Of House DJs Greg Sawyer + Simon Dawson will also host a room at Fire on 12 September, playing classic house all night long.
