Armand Van Helden
Simply one of the most pivotal figures in dance music – ever. Armand van Helden joins us in the Gardens for his first DJ set in Australia in seven years.
After rising to prominence in the mid ‘90s, Armand Van Helden has dominated club culture – mainstream and underground – and radio airwaves for more than two decades, blessing the scene with countless classics along the way. For over 20 years, he has been on the cutting edge of dance music, both breaking down walls between genres and opening up new ones in the process – few dance producers in any style have had the changeability and staying power of Armand Van Helden.
The New York electronic music icon will perform a DJ a set packed with his incredible hits – U Don’t Know Me, My My My, Bonkers (feat. Dizzee Rascal), I Want Your Soul and Duck Sauce. It will no doubt be a huge moment when he plays his infamous Tori Amos Professional Widow remix, or any of his remixes for New Order, Deep Forest, Daft Punk, and Faithless, his countless underground jams, and plenty of taste-making house selections; from classics to contemporary. The ever-diversifying Van Helden comes to Electric Gardens following a performance in Melbourne with a full 15-piece Melbourne Symphony Orchestra ensemble.
