Grammy Award-winning DJ and Producer, Afrojack, has already made his mark with platinum hits and sold out shows all over the world.
After headlining at some of the world’s largest festivals this summer, the 25-year-old artist is kicking off ‘The Spark Tour’ — his second fall tour, which is made up of nearly 30 shows across North America. He will hit cities including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Washington D.C., and Vegas, with more dates to be announced.
With preview tracks off his highly — anticipated debut album, Afrojack’s upcoming tour will give fans an exclusive taste of what to expect. After releasing his EP, “It’s A Matter Of…” as a ‘thank you’ to his loyal fans, Afrojack continues to create unstoppable hits. With his upcoming debut album including tracks such as “As Your Friend” featuring Chris Brown, which has already received international air play, the anticipation for this tour is even larger than his last.
During the tour, he’ll play a not-to-be-missed show at the Brooklyn landmark — MCU Park on September 22nd. Nestled at the end of the famed Coney Island Boardwalk, Afrojack will take over MCU as he turns the legendary Coney Island into ‘Afroland.’
“I’m really excited about this tour, especially after having such an epic summer playing festivals all around the world,” said Afrojack. “I feel like fans are ready for something new, and I can’t wait to get their reaction — the North American party scene never lets me down!”
Afrojack, born Nick van de Wall, has become the picture for today’s electronic dance music (EDM) fans and an influencer in the music industry as a whole. From his major chart hits to his trademark Afrojack productions in the EDM community, Afrojack has successfully walked the fine line between mainstream and underground EDM. His breakthrough single “Take Over Control,” featuring Eva Simons, became a worldwide hit; and he produced, co-wrote and featured on the No. 1 international party anthem “Give Me Everything” with Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Nayer, making him a multi-platinum artist.
Joining Afrojack on ‘The Spark Tour,’ for various dates, will be some of the most influential EDM artists in the industry, including Shermanology, Leroy Styles, Bobby Burns and Apster.
