Tiësto Dates Confirmed
The Dutch DJ will perform in Mumbai, Bengaluru and Delhi next month
EDM fans in India had a promising start in 2013 with dance music group Swedish House Mafia returning to perform at the One Last Detour this January. The coming months will be equally exciting with techno producer Richie Hawtin playing this week and trance producer Armin van Buuren bringing A State of Trance 600 to Mumbai on March 16th. The EDM lineup gets bigger with trance superstar Tiësto returning to India for a three-city tour this March.
Tiësto has previously performed in Hyderabad in 2008. “Tiësto is one of the most remarkable artists who has managed to remain relevant through almost two decades,” says Nikhil Chinapa, cofounder of the event management agency, Submerge, which is bringing down the Dutch artist. Tiësto , who started off playing trance in the early 90s began leaning towards electro and progressive house since 2010.
His upcoming three city concerts will be held in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru. “I’ve been chasing Tiësto for almost five years now, ever since he performed in Hyderabad. That time, his first gig didn’t go too well. So when I met him in Manchester, he was very curious to know more about the scene in India,” says Chinapa. While the venues are to be decided, Chinapa is sure that it won’t be a club gig. “One of the concerns in organizing this tour was that Tiësto is too big an artist to perform at a nightclub. Over the past year, with artists like SHM and Above & Beyond, we have seen that the concert format can work well with big-ticket EDM artists in India,” he adds.

March 29th, 2013: Mahalaxmi Race Course, Mumbai
