Paul Oakenfold announces Australian tour

Image for Paul Oakenfold announces Australian tour

Three years after his last Australian tour for Future Music Festival, scene stalwart Paul Oakenfold is coming back. The headline tour is again the work of Future Entertainment and sees the DJ playing sizeable shows around the country. The tour begins at HQ in Adelaide, before continuing on to the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney and Festival Hall in Melbourne, before winding up at Villa in Perth. There’s also a spot reserved for a secret show.

The Australian tour is under the ‘Four Seasons’ concept, which sees Oakenfold marking winter, spring, summer and autumn with new compilations. The DJ still leads his Perfecto Records empire and its Perfecto Fluoro offshoot from his adopted second home of the U.S., while also forging an industrious alliance with Armada.

2012 has been a big year for Oakey in the studio as well, so expect him to be in firing form once the tour rolls around. From all reports, the man has found his sweet spot again, releasing weapons like Glow In The Dark, Tokyo, Pop Star and Full Moon Party. “I came out of DJing when I moved to America to focus on writing for films and games,” he told the Liverpool Daily Post back in March. “Now I have put that on hold to do more travelling and DJing and I am really enjoying it. I am focused on DJing and making music this year. There is nothing like that feeling you get when you are directly in front of people and you are playing music and connecting through music. You really feel it and so do they.”

Paul Oakenfold's Radio One Essential Mix recorded live @ Home Nightclub back in 1999. Well worth checking out!

He's playing more psy-trance now, judging by his Bollocks 2CD mixes.

Secret show in Brisbane, perhaps, to rival Fuzzy's post Parklife show which will also be taking place that evening?

So if he is on Sunday for Sydney does that mean its a time time event or its a long weekend and it going to be a night time event?

Romie

Romie said on the 27th Jun, 2012

I meant to say day time, anyway I checked the event out and it says 10pm so nevermind that question.

"all the talk of Europe" lolololol I'll judge that for myself when I'm there in a week... how is this guy still relevant?

Would pay top dollar for a classics set. Those 1999 essential mixes by Oaky were ridiculous!

The fark is wrong with you twats , you're too " special " and have some type of prolific music career to diss oakenfold , you must the coolest in your little group friends when talk like that.

Must be some sad sad sad people, whatever age , who the fuck doesn't like to get there party on especially when oakenfold is dropping.

Ohhh that's right you little peoples knows best

baseade said on the 28th Jun, 2012

saw him at Wireless in London in 2009 and he was nothing short of awesome. Well up for this, just Okey if you are reading this, PPK Resurrection is shoite! I dont see why you insist on playing it is all of your sets!

Honestly one of the seminal moments in my life - listening to that first crescendo of 'it's like a dream...a fiction' as a ten-year old. The grand daddy of all essential mixes.

A real DJ from the 90's , can't go wrong !

Is there anyway we can find out where the secreat show is? I mean will a club advertise "Guest International DJ" and make a big deal of it???

Surely he would command to much $$ for it to be at a smaller venue so big capacity venues in Brisbane is where I would be looking.

Family already has an international on that night....

Ideas?
