Darude remains one of dance music’s most influential stars. At the age of 24 and at the height of the trance boom of the early 00’s, the Finnish DJ / artist / producer Ville Virtanen created the milestone single ‘Sandstorm’ under his pseudonym Darude. The track recently hit 275 million streams on Spotify, plus another ¼ billion views of the video on YouTube, with no signs of slowing down. It has since become one of the biggest selling dance singles in the history of electronic dance music with global sales of over 6 million units and to date has featured on hundreds of compilations worldwide.

The Finnish trance giant continues to add to his stellar discography and remains as fresh as ever with recent releases including ‘Singularity’, ‘Surrender’ and ‘Timeless’.

Hailed by the likes of DJ Magazine as “Finland’s biggest musical export”, Darude has gone on to perform in front of audiences up to 100,000 people strong, sweeping across continents and rocking clubs the world over. Always making time in his busy schedule to play to his Aussie fans, Darude’s 2022 tour is not to be missed, with plenty of opportunity for fans to hear Darude offerings both old and new on the dancefloor.
