Yacht Club DJs National Tour Announced

Written by Greg Moskovitch on August 27, 2014

Yacht Club DJs have announced a round of national tour dates to celebrate eight years as Australia’s favourite cartoon-pop-party duo and mash-up maestros. The Hooroo! Tour will serve as their final farewell to the fans that have seen them rise from Ballarat locals to world stage players.

The pair — Guy Chappell and Gaz Harrison — announced last month that 2014 would be “the last year of Yacht Club DJs,” thanking fans for the “unbelievable ride” and promising “one last massive jaunt around the country” to thank the fans that “made this job the best experience ever!”

Forming in 2008, Yacht Club DJs rose to prominence in Australia’s dance scene with their irreverent humour and banging weekly residencies at local haunt the Karova Lounge. As the two gained notoriety, propelled by a breakout performance at Meredith Music Festival, YCDJs became one of the country’s most in-demand dance acts, racking up numerous coveted festival spots.

After four years at Splendour In The Grass and two sold-out national tours, the boys took on the world when they were personally asked to tour with Mumford & Sons on their Gentleman Of The Road tour across North America, sharing stages with Haim and Edward Sharp & The Magic Zeros.

All the while, Gaz and Guy were garnering acclaim for their mixtape releases and most recently for their first EP of original material, No. 1. The releases are filled with the kind of snappy beats, bouncing rhythms, fearless cross-genre mutilation, and humour that characterise their live shows.

The boys promise their farewell tour will have all the hallmarks of a typical night with Yacht Club DJs: “on-stage nudity, crowd invasions, dancing on the decks and wild water sports, including riding the waves of the crowd on an inflatable boat.” Check below for all dates and ticketing details.
