Following a stellar summer in Ibiza, we are excited to announce that Glitterbox will be on the road again for an international tour, as well as releasing a brand new compilation mixed by disco connoisseur and Glitterbox A&R Melvo Baptiste. Pump The Boogie! is all about continuing to deliver the Glitterbox sound, no matter where you are, and guaranteed to move mind, body and soul.
The Glitterbox tour is kicking things off in Lyon at Club Azar, before returning to Glitterbox’s UK home Ministry of Sound for its fourth consecutive sold out party in London. Expect a night of house and disco magic delivered by headliner Joey Negro, a powerhouse of both genres in the UK. The Pump The Boogie! tour will also include Glitterbox’s Australia debut, with dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, bringing house legend Todd Terry down under. UK fans can rejoice as Glitterbox will also take the tour to the streets of the UK, with dates scheduled at Leed’s Church club, Junction in Cambridge, Bristol’s Marble Factory, Digital Newcastle and another London date in the pipeline for Ministry of Sound too. We are also excited to announce that Glitterbox will be heading across the pond to NYC’s iconic House of Yes, one of the city’s most notorious clubs, after the first incredible event there this summer. Headliners across the tour include Dimitri From Paris, Roger Sanchez, Louie Vega, Purple Disco Machine and Horse Meat Disco, as well as support from Dr Packer, Nightmares on Wax and Simon Dunmore, just to name a few. As always, the euphoric house and disco hedonism of the Glitterbox dancefloor will be enhanced by performances from the flamboyant Glitterbox dancers, including some familiar faces who have graced the covers of recent Glitterbox albums.
GLITTERBOX LONDON MINISTRY OF SOUND, LONDON SATURDAY, 8THDECEMBER

With the Pump The Boogie! compilation, you can enjoy the sounds of the tour from wherever you are. Boasting fifty tracks across the compilation, this carefully curated selection of tracks demonstrates Glitterbox’s signature authentic dance sounds and celebrates both the old and the new. Classic tracks from Sister Sledge, Kathy Brown and The Emotions prove once again why great disco stands the test of time, as they stand-up against new tracks like Mighty Mouse’s ‘The Spirit’ and Reset Preset’s ‘Hands Together’ (House of Omni Hands Together Extended Club Mix). True to Glitterbox form, the release explores authentic dance music enhanced by live instrumentation, moving from the joyful 80s and 90s sounds, right through to hot new releases.
Melvo Baptiste’s credibility as a selector is once again made clear with this compilation, as he captures the energy of Glitterbox’s parties with this enigmatic and diverse range of house and disco. The Glitterbox DJs, performers and the electric crowd have cemented Glitterbox’s place as one of the world’s hottest parties, this autumn Melvo and the Pump The Boogie! tour will bring the phenomenon to you.
