Synthony, a celebration of the last 30 years of dance music combining an orchestra, DJs, live vocalists and feature musicians, is returning to Brisbane for a One Night Only outdoor show at Riverstage on Saturday 29 May.
After a hugely success 2019 show at Brisbane City Hall, the super-charged and energetic Synthony will return to showcase a brand-new set list featuring the biggest dance anthems from icons such as: Avicii, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and Basement Jaxx to name just a few, backed with the full might of a 60+ piece Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra. The show includes stars from across the Australian music spectrum playing their global hits including: Miss Connie (Sneaky Sound System), Ilan Kidron (The Potbelleez), Mobin Master, Greg Gould, Ella Monnery, Andy Van (Madison Avenue / Vicious Records) and Mark Dynamix.
With an epic backdrop of visuals, lasers and a state-of-the-art sound system, it’s a magical, uplifting, hands-in-the-air dance party like no other. An energetic show from the outset, this is not an orchestra as you know it. This celebration of dance music is more than just a show, it takes the audience on a nostalgic journey back through their most memorable dance music experiences. Track after track, fans are taken down memory lane and celebrate dance music that is embedded into their subconscious.
Organisers say, “It’s no secret that 2020 has been a tumultuous rollercoaster for event promoters. The Synthony tour was due to be announced just days before New Zealand went into Level 4 lockdown and the future of the tour all of a sudden became awfully uncertain. Shows across Australia, Asia, and the US were in the pipeline for 2020. Months of preparation and negotiations with artists, venues and sponsors were all dashed and the team behind Synthony, had to rebuild the program all over again.”
