The Presets and Dragonette to tour

This May, The Presets and Dragonette come together for an extensive co-headline across North America. The Los Angeles performance will take place at Avalon in Hollywood on May 21.  Tickets go on sale Friday, March 29 at 10AM at

Although coming from opposite sides of the world (Australia and Canada respectively) both The Presets andDragonette share recognition globally for their electric live shows - hailed by audiences and critics as infectious, dynamic and irrepressible.

The Presets tour this May in support of their recently released album ‘Pacifica’: featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, ‘Pacifica’ ventures boldly into new, uncharted musical territories, traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion.

Fresh from US dates with Major Lazer, Dragonette will be showcasing material from their latest long player‘Bodyparts’. From emotion-packed ballads to fist-pumping anthems, ‘Bodyparts’ fuses heavy-hitting electro rhythms with pulsing beats, and sing-along choruses.

The Presets captured the world’s imagination with their blitzkrieg sophomore ‘Apocalypso’. Spawning five hit singles and Triple Platinum sales in Australia,‘Apocalypso’ set dizzying new heights for dance music in Australia. The single “My People” is the longest charting Australian single in ARIA chart history.

‘Pacifica’ is following suit - acclaimed ‘Album of The Year’ in a dozen Australian publications, and the single"Ghosts" recently awarded Single of the Year (Readers’ Choice) for at the 4th annual Australian Rolling Stone Awards.

Dragonette has also racked up an impressive list of accomplishments in the past year: a JUNO Award win for their hit single “Hello,” a live performance on Good Morning America, and a second JUNO nomination for Dance Recording of the Year for ‘Bodyparts’.

The bands will be joined in most markets by acclaimed LA duo, Classixx, performing tracks live from their upcoming debut ‘Hanging Gardens’, a svelte selection of impossibly sunny grooves, expertly crafted for road trips, pool parties and dance clubs (All shows except Salt Lake City, Phoenix and San Francisco).
