Australian duo, The Presets are set to headline a live show at the Electronic Dome at Rocking the Daisies 2014.
The Presets have been recognised worldwide for their dynamic live performances, playing hundreds of shows, including key slots at renowned music festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella, Exit, Melt, Parklife and Splendour in The Grass – and are now ready to blow the roof off the new electronic dome at Rocking the Daisies 2014.
The duo behind the name, Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes met while pursuing a mutual interest in contemporary music, where they then joined the instrumental, experimental band Prop, and in 2003 formed the more techno, dance focused duo The Presets.
The band became quickly recognised for their ability to fuse elements of dance music with energy more akin to that of a rock ’n’ roll show. Their single, “My People” is the longest charting single in Australian chart history. After releasing three landmark albums in the last 10 years with 2005’s Beams, 2008’s Apocalypso and 2012’s Pacifica, 2014 sees The Presets regroup, refocus and refine while 2014’s ‘No Fun’ sets The Presets on a nihilist path to techno decadence.
Providing jolts of excitement, a change of perspective and a new way of experiencing techno, The Presets are sure to leave their very distinctive mark on the Rocking the Daisies dome.
Rocking the Daisies, 2nd – 5th October 2014
In its ninth year since inception Rocking the Daisies has gone on to become the Western Cape’s most iconic outdoor music festival and South Africa’s premier eco-friendly music and lifestyle festival, held on Cloof Wine Estate in Darling, Western Cape.
