German dance music extraordinaire Claptone is returning down under to play a string of shows on the Groovin’ the Moo tour, and he’s decided to treat Sydney to a special performance too. He’ll be bringing ‘The Masquerade’ to the newly refurbished Roundhouse at the University of NSW, Sydney. As the name suggests, it’s not your normal kind of gig. It’s a fully themed masquerade ball, with an extravagant dress code and masks given out to all patrons on arrival. Inside you’ll find characters and performers creating an immersive experience unlike anything else the Roundhouse has seen. Combine that with a strong line-up, including Set Mo, Made in Paris, Luen Jacobs, and of course Claptone himself, and you’ve got the recipe for a pretty good night.
Claptone recently announced his sophomore album will drop on June 8th, which means he’s more than likely to drop some new tunes during ‘The Masquerade’. Confirmed collaborators for the album include Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke and Zola Blood. After the success of his debut Charmer, the hype is more than warranted. Make your way down to ‘The Masquerade’ to enjoy some masked mayhem, and get a taste of what’s to come from the world-renowned producer.
