FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — [Cambridge, MA] — With its first event just two weeks away, Together 2018 turns on the afterburners with a fantastic weekend in store.
For the first time in its nine-year history, the festival will officially take over a boat, and its first boat-party guest is world-class. In partnership with Resident Advisor, the critically-acclaimed producer Sophie will play on Friday, September 28th [tix]. (Sophie was previously at the festival in 2015.)
As for Saturday, September 29th, new information about the performance of The Black Madonna and Honey Dijon is in its location: Allston’s Zone 3. The festival will take over the state-of-the-art facility and build a spectacular spot for the house icons to throw down. Joining them will be Boston’s legendary re-edit king: DJ Kon [tix].
Speaking of reedits, alongside Boston’s longest-running hip-hop night, Fresh Produce, Together welcomes NYC legend Prince Paul (yes, that Prince Paul) to Good Life Boston.
Then, just two days later, DJ Pierre, the creator of the Afro-Acid movement, returns to Boston to celebrate 30 years of his unique spin on house music. “House is always going to be here,” says the Atlanta native. “There is always going to be some form of underground dance music. People will always have a need to express themselves.” Pierre and protege Beyun returns to her stomping ground at Middlesex Lounge on Wednesday, September 26th.
The rest of the week fills up as well with international festival favorite Truncate at Modular on 9/25, Jay Tripwire at Re:Set Boston on 9/26, and mighty drum and bass giant Dieselboy at the long-running Elements on 9/27 (all those events take place at Cambridge’s long-running Phoenix Landing music venue).
Along with the previously announced Floorplan, Jon Hopkins, Derrick Carter, Palms Trax, the Soul Clap Records Revue tour [tix], DJ Moxie plus Mall Grab, DJ Boring and Denis Sulta join all the variety of local openers, event-goers, and technologists for #tgthr9.
More announcements to come, including official apps, educational partners, and much more music! As always… stay tuned.
