Dance and classical aren't music genres you'd usually find swirling around in the same basket — unless you have a particular bent for the orchestral 'Sandstorm' covers found in the depths of YouTube. Synthony — A Generation of Dance Music is here to prove that the disciplines go hand in hand.

After a sellout run in New Zealand, the event arrives at Brisbane City Hall on Saturday, August 17. The event will see the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra join forces with a selection of DJs and live performers to play the biggest dance tracks of the last 30 years.

Expect the usual quiet inner-city venue to take a few cues from the nightclub scene, with lights, lasers and mapped video all part of the experience — and a selection of dance floor bangers note-for-note.

After kicking off with DJ Phil Smart, the event will also feature live performances from Ilan Kidron (Potbelleez), Jenny B (the vocalist on Corona's 'Rhythm of the Night'), Nastasha, Cherie Mathieson and saxophonist Lewis McCallum, before Ron Carroll carries the party into the small hours.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Monday, June 10.
