With longer, warmer days being enjoyed across the country, the countdown is firmly on until Pete Tong’s ‘Ibiza Classics’ graces the cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens stage on Friday 24 June.
To amplify the Ibiza feel, Northampton Saints and Music Plus Sport are excited to announce multi-faceted producer and DJ Meg Ward as the support act.
Through her innate passion and love for electronic music, Meg Ward has diligently worked to hone a unique sound that comprises driving basslines and synth-heavy compositions, the likes of which have been heard at some of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals – Creamfields, The Warehouse Project and Motion Bristol to name just a few.
Her productions and DJ sets are distinctly house-oriented, incorporating elements of the classic rave sounds of the 90s.
With Meg as support and Pete Tong at the helm, your favourite club tracks and the freshest hits will be reimagined, coupled with incredible visual effects and the latest in music technology.
“It’s been an amazing journey and the show has evolved year on year,” said Pete Tong. “Obviously, we had to pause for the pandemic, but we were able to record a bunch of new music and revitalise the show…now in 2022, we’ve got a whole wealth of material to pick from.
“It’s always great to play outside – we’ve built a big production where the whole thing is about taking people to Ibiza in a big audio-visual extravaganza experience.”Pete Tong
As the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming, few individuals in the world of dance music can claim the kind of influence Pete Tong has had over the last 20 years. While he’s known publicly as Pete Tong the DJ, behind the scenes, he’s an industry icon.
With conductor Jules Buckley and Symphony Orchestra, the ‘Ibiza Classics’ show will combine unparalleled production, awe-inspiring visuals, a mix of brand-new songs as well as your favourite club tracks from past decades.
Tickets are on sale now from musicplussport.com.
