A 60-plus piece orchestra performs 30 years of dance floor bangers.
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 first hitting up Brisbane in 2019, the event returns on Saturday, May 29. It'll see a 60-plus piece orchestra join forces with a selection of DJs and live performers at the Riverstage, all to play the biggest dance tracks of the last 30 years.
Expect the outdoor 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.
Hosted by Mobin Master, the lineup includes live performances from Miss Connie (Sneaky Sound System) and Ilan Kidron (Potbelleez), with more acts to be announced — and the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra, of course.
Tickets go on sale at 11am AEST on Friday, February 19.
