UK producer SUB FOCUS is returning to New Zealand for his debut Arena tour this February, introducing his new production show ‘Solar’. Performing at Auckland’s Spark Arena, Wellington’s TSB Arena as well as embarking on 3 regional shows at Tomoana Showgrounds in Hawkes Bay, Mount Maunganui’s Soper Reserve and Hamilton’s The Factory.
One of the leading names in dance music, SUB FOCUS remains an influential figure in the D&B scene. Having originally made a name for himself on Andy C’s Ram Records in the late noughties, he went on to release chart-topping singles and albums on Virgin & EMI, being awarded multiple gold and silver discs in the process and is responsible for writing some of the genres biggest anthems: Desire, Tidal Wave and Timewarp. He had a record 9 songs in the Top 100 D&B tracks on George FM this year, with 2 in the top 5, as voted for by its listeners.
He’s since become an international headline act performing at the likes of Coachella, Glastonbury, Tomorrowland, EDC, Warehouse Project, and having sold out Brixton Academy and Printworks London as a solo act. In 2009 he released his self-titled debut album, his second album Torus in 2013 and he joined forces with fellow D&B big hitter Wilkinson on their acclaimed collaborative album Portals in 2020. More recently Sub Focus released his debut remix album Reworks I featuring remixes of his originals from Dimension, Culture Shock and Camo & Krooked and more, as well as officially remixing Rag’n’Bone Man and Camelphat at the start of the year.
Support acts include Grafix.
This tour is produced by Pitch Control and BreakOut Presents.
