It is with a heavy head that we have to announce that our planned headline act, Tom Novy, will not be joining us for our closing party. Completely out of our hands, his tour has been cancelled by the Melbourne-based touring company. DigDeep had booked and paid for Tom Novy months in advance and we were emailed this message from Illusive Touring in Melbourne:
It is with great regret that I must inform you that we have encountered a last minute cancellation of the Tom Novy tour. We have worked around the clock over the past 36 hours to try and ensure that the tour would go ahead, unfortunately we were unable to reach a resolution to an issue that had arisen that was beyond our control. This has resulted in the artist being unable to make it to Australia in time for this leg of the tour. We are continuing to work with management on a resolution and potential re-schedule of dates. Once again I sincerely apologise that this situation has arisen and will do my best to remedy the situation as best as possible.
Touring & Event Coordinator
So, on a more positive note, we have been very busy the last 24 hours securing another great headline act for you. And we think you will not be disappointed… a great House/Deep House DJ of the moment: Lovebirds.
Lovebirds is the solo project from Hamburg based producer Sebastian Doering, also known as Knee Deep. For the last 5 years, Lovebirds has been in the focus of the worldwide deep house/mid-tempo/boogie/nudisco scene. His recent single “Want You In My Soul” featuring Stee Downes is on the way to becoming one of the tunes of the year finding its way into every DJ bag and artist chart. He releases on labels such as Freerange, Winding Road, OM Records, Teardrop and Buzzin Fly…
The Lovebirds sound is like a blast from the past with house steroids packing serious production muscle. Listening to Lovebirds is like taking trip back in time – but riding in a gleaming futuristic spaceship…
For those of you on the Boxing Day Cruise with Joey Negro, the very last track played by Joey was Lovebirds “Want You In My Soul”. So we’re confident that the Lovebirds man himself can take over where Joey left off. Here’s a little reminder to get you in the mood…
Afterparty at the Burdekin
For the After Party, we’ve joined forces again with our good friends at the Burdekin. This Saturday is also Mardi Gras, and we’re sure many of you will known from years past, there is no better place to be on Mardi Gras than the Burdekin. If that wasn’t enough, we have two floors of DigDeep DJs from 5.30pm til 1am. So we have a big day planned. No kick out – just kick on… Happy days!
See you on the dancefloor…
