Defected Records Announces Seven-Date Tour of North America
Highly respected UK-based house label, Defected Records will be returning to the US while laying plans for its busiest year of shows yet. After kicking off 2022 right with Defected Malta and Croatia completely sold out, it's clear Defected is on a serious tear. The crew is gearing up for its first tour since the pandemic started, and it is sure to be a doozy.
The seven-date, seven-stop tour spans March and April 2022 and touches down in house music's most stalwart cities, LA, San Francisco, Miami, NYC, and Austin. Then it migrates south to beautiful Brazil. The tour will feature many A-List artists, including A-Trak, Floorplan, John Summit, Catz' N Dogz, Ferreck Dawn, Eats Everything, Sam Divine, and others. Celebrating the first time the London-based music institution has performed in the United States since 2019 and the first time in Brazil in over a decade.
Key Stops in the Americas
The tour stops at epic locations in superb venues such as the West Coast's Los Angeles' expansive Hollywood nightclub Sound and futuristic warehouse-style venue Halcyon San Francisco. Going cross country for a pitstop at Miami Music Week to throw a pool party of epic proportions during the festival at the enchanting Island Gardens before heading to renowned Brooklyn warehouse The Great Hall at Avant Gardner. Defected's conclusive stop on the United States tour is The Concourse Project in Austin, a massive space with world-class production capabilities.
All this before making its way down south to stunning Brazil for their first time, hitting up the beautiful country in over a decade. Making this one for the books, the first stop is taking over for the first time ARCA, a 6400 capacity venue in the heart of So Paolo. The following night, Defected will perform at Cambori's Green Valley, located in the heart of the Brazilian jungle, a truly unique clubbing experience often described to be closer to that of a festival. Green Valley has been an unmatched success story in the Brazilian electronic scene.
