ALL MY FRIENDS—downtown Los Angeles premier 21+ music event happening at Skylight ROW DTLA October 19 & 20– has announced it’s line-up. Curated by founder Gary Richards aka producer and DJ DESTRUCTO, the two-day event will feature a variety of some of the most respected and engaging house music artists from around the world. Tickets are available now at: www.amfdtla.com
Two stages reflecting last years ALL MY FRIENDS popular ‘Friendzone’ (with a secret speakeasy-style third stage) will serve as a platform for the international house scene that rarely can be found together in Los Angeles. These include: Headliners Justice (France)—2019 GRAMMY-winners for ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’ with Woman Worldwide–and Black Coffee (South Africa)—an internationally heralded artist known for tribal sophistication, spiritual splendour and scintillating performance straight from his high-profile Ibiza residency–along with DJ Harvey (U.K.), Blond:ish (Canada) and Gene Farris (U.S.); Britain’s Idris Elba joins for his first appearance since his blazing Coachella set this past April; Australia’s Kaz James who is impressing Ibiza dance floors with his song of the summer smash “Through Your Love”; And a crop of emerging artists like Brazil’s Bruno Furlan, Spain’s Sita Abellan and Russia’s Volac, just to name a few.
Each artist has an ALL MY FRIENDS connection. Justice and Busy P have played DESTRUCTO’s events since 2007, Sita Abellan and Phlegmatic Dogs first toured the U.S. supporting DESTRUCTO and Volac and Dillon Nathaniel have remixed DESTRUCTO tracks.
