As Miami Music Week draws near, the waters of the pristine coastal city become muddied by myriads of events and shows, but each year one party stands out as the must-attend event of the week: All Gone Pete Tong, which returns to its home at The Surfcomber on March 22nd.

Over the past decade, Legendary BBC Radio 1 Host and master curator Pete Tong has hosted his can’t miss event, presenting the biggest stars and hottest emerging talent, with artists like Calvin Harris, Eric Prydz, Kölsch, and Duke Dumont playing alongside The Martinez Brothers, Seth Troxler, MK and Hot Since 82. Backstage serves as the ultimate industry hangout spot, where label heads, managers, DJs, promoters and the who’s who of dance music all congregate for an impromptu summit under the Miami sky.

This year, Tong continues his newly-established tradition of featuring B2B sets at the event, allowing for one of a kind collaborations. Pete Tong will perform with King of the Underground, Damian Lazarus, for a masterfully curated trip through cutting edge sounds, while two dance music powerhouses - the Black Madonna and Honey Dijon - will give listeners an uplifting and soulful journey as they debut under their new Black Honey alias. Progressive house stars Kölsch and Tiga will push the boundaries of contemporary live electronic music, and South Africa’s most decorated DJ Black Coffee will square off with style auteur Virgil Abloh - the Off-White force with impeccable taste. The star power doesn’t stop there, as world-renowned actor and DJ Idris Elba joins the legendary Doc Martin and tech-house devotees B.Traits and Le Fleur are slated to deliver a high-intensity power set.

Additional pairings to be announced in the coming months. Watch this space for more news.

2017 proved one of Pete’s biggest years yet, bringing his iconic Ibiza Classics to some of the most storied venues in the world including The Hollywood Bowl and selling more than 70,000 tickets for his week-long UK arena tour. Pete also released his second studio album with conductor Jules Buckley and the acclaimed Heritage Orchestra: Ibiza Classics, the highly-anticipated follow-up to the UK #1 phenomenon Classic House.

About Pete Tong

There are few individuals in the world of dance music who can claim the kind of influence Pete Tong has had over the last twenty years. As the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming, Pete has held a commanding presence over the industry for more than two decades. With an unparalleled ear for new talent, Tong has become the leading tastemaker of the electronic generation. While he’s known publicly as Pete Tong the DJ, behind the scenes, he’s an industry icon.

The last 18 months have seen him ramp up an already-stacked schedule. In 2015, to celebrate BBC’s 20-year presence in Ibiza, he brought electronic music to BBC’s Proms concert series by having a live orchestra perform dance classics. This December Tong, Jules Buckley and The Heritage Orchestra will host a follow up performance at London’s iconic O2 Arena which sold out in hours, and will be accompanied by a December album entitled Classic House on UMC/UMOD/Polydor. In 2016, Tong brought his Essential Mix series stateside with live broadcasts in Los Angeles, Miami and Brooklyn; he took the IMS to Shanghai for its first ever China edition; and he served as producer and music supervisor for Netflix original film XOXO. Presently, he is embarking on his first-ever All Gone Pete Tong North American tour.

Having spent the majority of his life in England, Pete has recently resettled in Los Angeles to begin a new chapter in his life. He’s wasted little time establishing himself in the US, having helped inaugurate Clear Channel Entertainment’s Evolution dance brand in 2013 and recently expanding the programming to the extended two-hour segment, The Evolution Beatport Show with Pete Tong, broadcasting on 90 different Top 40 stations in the US. Meanwhile, his world famous BBC Radio 1 shows, the Essential Mix and Essential Selection, are only growing in popularity: the former continues to be the Holy Grail of mix shows, while the latter is still the best place to premiere a new record.

On the DJing front, Tong is currently championing three premier All Gone Pete Tong residencies in the US. Once a month, you can find him bridging the gap to the underground at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles, while in Miami, he’s keeping the integrity of club culture alive at Story. His residency at the SLS Las Vegas sees him performing regularly at the brand new LiFE club, where he’s introducing a whole new palette of underground sounds to the party mecca. Finally, the All Gone Pete Tong brand has achieved global renown through world-class parties in Miami during WMC and Ibiza as well as dedicated stages at festivals like Creamfields, TomorrowWorld, Electric Zoo and SW4.

As a music producer, Tong has led an esteemed career over the years with notable releases on Pets Recordings, Ministry of Sound, Toolroom Records, Suara and more. His compilations have garnered critical acclaim--most notably 2013’s 60-track anthology, The Pete Tong Collection. Most recently, he debuted on Beesemyer Music with tech-house anthem “Aurora” alongside John Monkman, while also curating All Gone Ibiza 2016 alongside Andrea Oliva as part of his All Gone Pete Tong compilation series.

On the business side, Tong continues to be a prominent force in both the booking and A&R worlds. In 2008, he co-founded WME’s electronic music division alongside Joel Zimmerman, helping to turn the venture into one of the most powerful booking agencies in the world. He’s also relaunched his label FFRR, reclaiming his reputation for A&R and signing acts like Oliver Heldens, The Magician, Blonde and The Disciples. On top of this, Tong is responsible for founding the International Music Summit, which holds major events in Ibiza, Los Angeles and Singapore. Now in its 6th year, the event is viewed in the industry as The Premier Platform for Thought Leadership in Electronic Music.

When all is said and done, one shudders to think what dance music would have been like without Pete Tong’s influence. Over the years, he’s played a crucial role in breaking new artists and changing the way people think about electronic music. With his new found home in Los Angeles, the British icon is looking to revolutionize the perception of dance music in America. If there’s anyone up for the task, it’s Pete Tong.
