The globally renowned nightlife phenomenon Glitterbox makes its highly anticipated return to Australasia for the first time in over 3 years!
Specialising in the golden era of disco, contemporary house and club anthems, Glitterbox returns to Australia this January, bringing its fierce performers, drag queens and state-of-the-art production to the stage for an epic six-date takeover. Glitterbox is loved the world over for giving partygoers the experience of a lifetime, on an all-inclusive dancefloor! Nothing but love, good vibes & good tunes!
The unstoppable brand will deliver the energy and exuberance it’s known and loved for globally, eager to make up for lost time in Australia & Bali, with a New Zealand first.
One of the most iconic names in house music, Defected and Glitterbox founder Simon Dunmore, recently announced his retirement. This will be his final tour to Australia, so come and wish Simon a proper Aussie send-off! Simon is responsible for signing and championing some of the biggest Artists & Producers in house music. His first signing on the label was the classic ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ by Soulsearcher (Top 5 UK Hit). Followed by anthems such as: ‘To be in Love’ – Masters at Work, ‘Get, Get Down’ – Paul Johnson, ‘Another Chance’ – Roger Sanchez, ‘I Feel For You’ – Bob Sinclar and ‘Finally’ – Kings of Tomorrow are just a small sample of the thousands of tracks he’s brought to the masses over his illustrious career and 23 Years at the reigns of Defected!
In 2014, Simon conceptualised Glitterbox, a nightlife phenomenon. It’s still to this day, one of Europe’s most popular House brand. With people all over the world flocking to Ibiza and the various island and boat parties around the globe. The Glitterbox label has released music from the likes of: Purple Disco Machine, The Shapeshifters, Mousse T and many more.
Popular vinyl-only DJ Natasha Diggs has gone on to play at some of the hottest parties and alongside some of the best DJs and artists in the business. She also gained a cult following over the past few years for her online Disco & Funk DJ Sets. Natasha’s deep knowledge of music has enabled her to rock diverse crowds around the globe and on any given night, her sets might dip into hip hop, soul, funk, latin, rock, house, reggae, afro-brazilian, disco, and beyond.
A fan favourite of the Glitterbox roster Melvo Baptiste is an established broadcaster, tastemaker, and label head. Melvo has shared his musical DNA of soul, rare groove, funk, disco and house with enthusiasts around the world. In 2017, Simon Dunmore & Melvo set up Glitterbox Radio Show, which he presents weekly and is syndicates to 60+ stations around the world. Melvo has become the face of the brand, touring across the globe at sold-out parties and festivals.
Joining the international throng of Artists, is none other than Aussie Disco king Late Nite Tuff Guy. LNTG has gone on to forge a cult following with his Disco cuts and DJ sets around Australia and Europe. Bringing the funk, soul, Disco and good time vibes, his sets are never to be missed!
In terms of an Aussie Defected & Glitterbox fave, you can’t go past Dr Packer.
