Auckland Town Hall

Ever wanted to hear Darude’s Sandstorm in G 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 to Brisbane on August 17.

Here’s what to expect. The  Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra will be taking to the stage at Brisbane City Hall, alongside some of Queensland’s best up-and-coming 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.

The hall will also be decked out in your usual Berlin-underground mix of lasers, smoke machines, strobes and mapped video projections.

Here’s the line-up we know so far: Ilan Kidron (Potbelleez), Jenny B (the voice on Corona's 'Rhythm of the Night'), DJ Phil Smart, Nastasha, Cherie Mathieson and saxophonist Lewis McCallum, plus Ron Carroll. The whole thing will be pumping till the wee hours.

Tickets go on sale at 9am, Monday 10 June. Buy one for your grandpa while you’re at it. You can pre-register over here.
