Tickets on sale Thurs 22 July at 9am
The Wellington duo has just revealed that their latest album, NOT FOREVER will be out on August 27. And to mark the occasion, they’ve also just announced a 10-date nationwide tour giving their New Zealand fans the first chance to experience the new tracks in full volume at one of their renowned speaker-rattling shows.
Proudly presented by FUZEN ENTERTAINMENT, the tour will take place throughout September, kicking off in Ohakune, before taking in Christchurch, Auckland, Nelson, Wellington, Whanganui, Dunedin, Hamilton, Mt Maunganui, and finally wrapping up in Napier. See full tour dates and details below.
Long celebrated in D&B circles for their envelope-pushing eclectic tastes and highly energetic stage presence, the vaunted duo’s set always delivers, and their unique and organic take on 170bpm+ bass music has seen them make their home in the highest echelons of international dance music.
In keeping with their excellent live reputation, this tour is set to be a rather special one. The Upbeats are working with world-renowned visual and lighting company, HUMAN PERSON, to create a bespoke multi-sensory visual experience called REALMS. Set to heighten the all-encompassing sensory nature of the shows, Realms will amplify the live experience for concert goers at the Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington events. Human Person recently worked on a customized live immersive experience for Netsky, so fans can expect something just as special.

Hot off the heels of Chillinit’s 2021 Australian tour, Goodna- based rapper and local Hip hop force LISI has today announced he will be hitting the road with his ‘Dreams Tour’ this November! The tour will also feature four-piece collective Th4 W3ST.
