In January 2010, Ministry of Sound will plug you in to the future of house music with Jacked.
Jacked is about putting world class artists back where they should be: on amazing sound systems with no volume restrictions in a specially tailored party environment. It’s about unique productions, drinks in cups, and people who are there for the some reason as you – the party!
Jacked is touring nationally from 22 – 27 January in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.
It all begins with Afrojack, whose rise to the top has been as quick as it is impressive. In 2006 with a little help from fellow Dutchmen Sidney Samson and Laidback Luke, Afrojack’s first commercial release “Afrojack – In Your Face” hit #3 in the spot in the Dutch dance Top 30...not bad for an 18 year old bedroom producer. Since then he has earned the formidable title “King of the Dutch” through his impressive collaborations with international luminaries including David Guetta, Diplo, Kid Cudi, Chuckie, Laidback Luke and Steve Angello.
Have a look through the playlists of club DJ’s worldwide and you are likely to see the name Wolfgang Gartner pop up. A lot. In a period of less than a year and a half, Wolfgang Gartner has landed 6 top-10 Beatport singles, a Pete Tong “essential new tune of the week” on BBC’s Radio 1, over 50,000 Beatport downloads, and a plethora of DJ support within the industry. Having DJ’ed on every single continent on our planet, his live sets deliver the kind of energy and technical proficiency that come with a deep knowledge of the craft.
And at just 21 it's fair to say Hardwell's 'been around' if you take into consideration his achievements over the past 18 months. "Guess What", a recent co-production with Chuckie, is likely to be one of the most played underground house records of the past two years, while the "Show Me Love vs. Be" bootleg of Steve Angello and Laidback Luke's track and "MRKRSTFT" were some of the biggest dance hits of recent times. Behind the decks he never fails to deliver with exceptional technical skills, a variety of music and an added personal touch that makes him stand out.
Along with this stellar lineup, Jacked will feature spectacular visuals, performances and décor. This is not just another average music festival: Jacked is where discerning clubbers will see three of the most important names in house up close and loud.
