…while they'll be seeing in 2020 at Printworks in London
Following a successful US tour last year – their first visit to US soil for five years – Defected have announced a short return visit, with four club dates set for November.
The tour kicks off at Washington DC's Ustreet Hall on 14 November, then moves on to San Francisco's legendary Halcyon (15 November), Sound in Los Angeles (16 November) and finally Chicago's Smart Bar (22 November). The headliners for all four dates are Riva Starr and Ferrek Dawn: the pair fly solo in Washington, with support from Ant LaRock in San Francisco and LA, and from the Smart Bar residents in Chicago.
In other Defected news, the UK label recently also announced that they will be celebrating the New Year at London mega-venue Printworks, staging not one but two large-scale parties. Defected's disco-oriented Glitterbox brand host on New Year's Eve, while New Year's Day will be a more straight-up house affair hosted by the mothership label. The exact line-up for the two parties is still TBA.
