One of the hottest movements in clubland will invade London led by dance royalty Groove Armada, a duo who are no strangers to Hertfordshire.
Spearheading the ANTS event at the 02 Academy, in Brixton, on April 13, the Groove Armada DJs will be familiar to anyone who attended last summer’s Eastern Electrics festival at Hatfield House, where they headlined the Switchyard arena.
Eats Everything are also on the Brixton bill.
The London event promises to be ANTS’ biggest show outside of Ibiza, when the insectoid house and techno swarm heads to the capital.
Groove Armada have been at the forefront of house music for two decades and they are equally happy playing big stages or sweat-soaked basements.
Their breakthrough releases, the downtempo anthem At The River and million-selling album Vertigo, has led to the act releasing seven studio albums to date plus a Fabric Live album in 2016.
One of Ibiza’s most respected electronic music gatherings, ‘The Colony’, as it is known to its legions of supporters, will invade London’s 02 Academy Brixton for its second party in the capital, following its sold-out show at Electric Brixton in February 2016.
Not many music collectives have seen a meteoric rise to the top of the electronic music scene quite like ANTS, with the brand growing from its Ibiza base to host main stages at festivals and high-profile club shows across the globe.
After launching at Ushuaia, Ibiza in 2013, ANTS has evolved into one of the most essential Ibiza parties, drawing the island’s clubbing cognoscenti as well as clued up clubbers from around the world.
It is internationally renowned for its perfectly curated underground line-ups and monster production, creating unique and unforgettable experiences.
Hosted by trusted resident DJ and phenomenal underground producer Andrea Oliva, ANTS has welcomed a wide plethora of international artists including Sasha, Maya Jane Coles, Eats Everything, Groove Armada, Eli & Fur, Joris Voorn, Nic Fanciulli, Hot Since 82, Kolsch, and many more.
The groundbreaking Ushuaia residency has since led to ANTS events in Miami, Dubai, Hong Kong, Mexico’s BPM festival and Snowbombing, among other prestigious locations.
The legendary O2 Academy Brixton has hosted some of the most influential names in the scene with Carl Cox, John Digweed, Moderat, Four Tet and Caribou all hosting sold-out shows at the venue over the years.
The state-of-the-art sound system and massive production values make this one of the hottest venues in the country.
Easter Thursday will witness the ANTS take over as the colony evolves.
