Electric Gardens returns to Melbourne with Electric Beach!
Electric Gardens is excited to announce that it is back in 2024! After a three-year hiatus, the Electric Gardens franchise returns to the festival landscape with a one-stage, open-air experience, across the Easter Long Weekend: Saturday 30 March (Melbourne), Sunday 31 March (Sydney) and Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 April (Perth).
Priding itself on booking the very best in the electronic music scene, artists who break boundaries and DJs who read crowds, the next edition features a line-up that boasts some of the greatest house and progressive DJs & Producers of our time.
Armand Van Helden
Getting things started, one of the most prolific DJ/Producers in the global dance scene is none other than Armand Van Helden. With an extensive list of hits under his belt including ‘You Don’t Know Me,’ ‘My, My, My,’ ‘Hear My Name,’ and ‘Bonkers’ to name a few. Also well-known for his massive hits with A-Trak, under the Duck Sauce project, featuring: ‘Barbara Streisand,’ ‘aNYway,’ ‘Big Bad Wolf’ & ‘NRG.’ Armand has remixed for many artists, including New Order, Faithless, the Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson and Daft Punk. But despite all this, Armand is not slowing down – he’s just eager to see what’s around the corner. And we can’t wait to welcome Armand back on to Australian shores.
One of the most popular artists in the dance scene over the last few years is Franky Wah. Franky’s breakthrough began with ‘Change My Mind,’ followed by ‘Get Me High’, a wistful, breaks-driven cut which spread like wildfire, making it to No.1 on Beatport’s Top 100. The follow up ‘Words’ achieved equal success with support coming far and wide from Tale of Us, Solomun and the trance king himself Tiësto.
After that came ‘Hide’ featuring stirring vocals from singer Robinson and his recent link up with Jessie Ware, entitled ‘Time After Time.’ Each release has made its way into the Top 5 on Radio 1’s Dance Chart, breaking into Beatport’s Top 10. This man is only just getting started.
Late Nite Tuff Guy
Late Nite Tuff Guy has forged a position as one of the most in-demand and best-loved DJ/producers on the planet, with Greg Wilson rightly referring to him as “a leading light of the global re-edits movement.”
A superhero of soul, a destroyer of dance floors and a highly sought-after producer for some of the world’s biggest artists and iconic record labels, LNTG is synonymous with the sexiest of sets and the most credible of disco edits, and has amassed legions of devoted fans from every corner of the globe.
But while he is bossing all things digital and recorded, it’s the clubs and festivals where his heart is at, playing to the people that know and love him as well as winning over new fans.
One of Australia’s favourite international House DJs would have to be the S-Man himself, Roger Sanchez. After thrilling Aussie audiences earlier this year, he’s excited to be back in Australia for Electric Gardens. From humble beginnings in NYC to multi-year residencies in Ibiza; from digging in dusty crates to headlining festival main stages around the world, Roger is truly a self-made man and dance music legend.
Sanchez creativity behind the decks soon flourished from a few singles into an ambitious catalogue of over two thousand original productions and remixes. With hits including ‘Another Chance,’ ‘Lost,’ Turn on the Music,’ ‘You Can’t Change Me,’ Roger’s remix discography reads like a ‘Who’s who’ of the international music scene. We look forward to seeing his silky skills on the decks once again at Electric Gardens.
The iconic British No.1 DJ (DJ Mag 2000), 4x time DJ Awards winner and Grammy Award nominee Sasha returns to Australia in 2024. Known as part of the iconic duo Sasha & John Digweed and for his remixes for artists such as Madonna, Moby, The Chemical Brothers & Hot Chip to name a few. His Global Underground album releases are still revered to this day.
The best DJs know that Djing is first about being able to read the crowd and then about being able to tap into that human experience and take it on a journey. Sasha has always been noted for being a master of this, using his sets to embark audiences on a true progressive musical journey like no other. And to this day, he continues to seek out great new music for his live sets and we can’t wait to see where he takes us when he returns to Australia.
Huge bass lines, tribal drums and infectious grooves are the building blocks of Melbourne producer, The Oddness, signature sound. Sitting at the forefront of the Downtempo / Organic house scene in Australia, the last 4 years has seen him perform at Australia’s premium festivals including Rainbow Serpent, Elements and Esoteric, both as a solo act and with his 3-piece band including multi-instrumentalists Dylan Jarrad and Timmus.
A prolific output of music, including three albums, have been released through labels including Sol Selectas, Beat & Path, Eskimo Recordings & Sofa Beats. As well as his original music he is widely know for his re-interpretations of classic tracks though his ‘Reworks, Edits and Bootlegs’ series.
T1000 Events promoter Damian Gelle is thrilled to be bringing back his beloved Electric Gardens franchise: “We’ve sat on the bench since the pandemic, but now it’s time. We’ve always had a unique offering and I’m once again thrilled to be presenting some of the world’s greatest DJs across multiple states in unique settings.”
"Let’s get this party started!"
“Electric Gardens will provide the most memorable occasion of your whole summer… the event continues to attract an eclectic crowd whose sole goal is to enjoy themselves to live performances of dance music’s finest.”
