Ever wanted to hear Avicii's Levels in C Minor with the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra? Yeah, us neither, come to think of it. But it does sound like one awesome mash-up.

Welcome to the world of Synthony—a world-wide movement that pairs famous orchestras with flat-cap wearing DJs to host wall-to-wall banger-fests. And it’s coming back to Brisbane on 29 May.

Here’s what to expect. The  Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra will be taking to the stage at Riverstage, alongside some of Australia’s best DJs and live performers. The whole motley crew will then assault your frontal cortex with dance floor bangers from the last 30 years of electronica. No Mozart, we promise.

This year, the brand new line-up features the likes of Avicii, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and Basement Jaxx, just to name a few. You can also expect lasers, visual effects and everything else it takes to get you and 3,999 other partiers dancing with both hands in the air.

Here’s the line-up we know so far: Ilan Kidron (Potbelleez), Miss Connie (Sneaky Sound System) Mobin Master, Greg Gould, Ella Monnery, Andy Van (Madison Avenue) and Mark Dynamix. The whole place will be pumping.

Tickets go on sale at 11am, Friday 19 February. Buy one for your grandpa while you’re at it. You can pre-register over here.
