Annie Mac’s AMP 2015 Tour will be kicking off at the end of the month, with dates all over the UK lined up to host the leading lady of dance music on BBC Radio 1 and a selection of hand picked guests. The tour will begin at Switch in Southampton on the 30th October, before making its way round 10 cities including Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, London and Manchester, in which there are 2 dates at the world renowned Warehouse Project.
Each date will see Annie performing one of her eclectic DJ sets that bring together cutting edge new school artists and classic dance floor anthems that are still nationwide favourites. Joining Annie at each event will be a line up of todays hottest electronic exports from the world of British dance music, the first of which is Stormzy. Having won the Best Grime Artist at the MOBO’s last year (as well as being nominated in the same category this year), Stormzy is the MC from Croydon who has made a big name for himself despite being only 22. Not That Deep and Jupa are just a couple of the singles from his independently released 2014 album Dreamers Disease, which pipped him a spot on Later Live earlier this year.
The second guest that will be joining Annie Mac on all of her 2015 tour dates this year is Redlight. As another key grime artist in the UK scene, Redlight has released music on Chase & Status’ MTA Records and pipped a number 5 single in 2012 with the single Lost In Your Love. More recently Redlight has been collaborating with British dance giants The Prodigy and Mobb Deep on new single Lion Jungle. The final duo on the list of Annie guests is NRG Flash, the new project from Rinse & Radio 1 DJs Monki and Melé, both of which are regarded as successful DJs in their own right.
These guests will be joining Annie on all the tour dates that are line up, with The Warehouse Project dates being the only ones that differ. Here, the list of guests grows and grows as the likes of DJ EZ, Julio Bashmore, Jasper James, Denney, Harvard Bass and more take to the stage at Store Street on November 26th and 27th.
