2015-03-04 19:00

Cape Town - Sound Of Light has announced that German DJ Robin Schulz will be touring South Africa.

Robin Schulz will be headlining the Sound of Light events in Durban on 8 May, in Johannesburg on 9 May and Cape Town on 10 May. Joburg will also host a special event for the under 18’s as LOUDA takes place at Innesfree Park during the day on 9 May.

Sound of Light will deliver three dance events in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. It is an event based on light, where the pure essence of what music looks like will be captured with an international standard production. Expect a visual experience like never before, an experience built solely to entertain. Venues for the shows: Johannesburg - Nasrec, Cape Town – Shimmy Beach Club, and Durban – Wavehouse.

What does Sound of Light mean? "Where SOUND and LIGHT meet, that is the space euphoria is created. Each breath is a gift, each movement is an opportunity and each vision is a chance to imagine what can be! This is your chance to lose control of your mind and let your senses take over. A space where you can see the sounds and touch the light. Welcome to the Sound Of Light."

Not forgetting the under 18’s, a special event has been created as LOUDA entertains the under 18’s with a stellar line-up, including Robin Schulz and top SA local dance acts and DJ's such as Goodluck, Pascal & Pearce, Royal K, Kyle Cassim and more. This daytime show will take place in Johannesburg on 9 May and is open to youth aged 12 to 17 years old. The Innesfree Park situated in the heart of Sandton will play host to the 1st LOUDA experience.

The inimitable guitar riff, the wistful voice and Robin Schulz' driving, passionate groove put music fans under a spell in the summer of 2014. Regardless of whether you hear the track in the car, via Smartphone or at the club on the packed dancefloor: with his remix of Lilly Wood & The Prick's Prayer in C Robin Schulz has the world in his hands. To date, the song has achieved #1 in the iTunes charts in 27 countries and was Top 10 iTunes in 36 countries. In Germany he held the Number One position in the Single Charts, the iTunes Charts, the Amazon MP3 Charts, the Dance Charts, the Shazam Charts, the Streaming Charts, and the Spotify Charts, breaking all records.

Furthermore Robin Schulz is the first German artist whose track achieved the #1 position in the Worldwide Shazam Charts. This success is exciting for the 27-year-old from the German town of Osnabruck, who has been a DJ and producer for 12 years. But he doesn't allow it to go to his head. The fans mainly see him behind the DJ booth, fully concentrated on the music, the distinctive lines of his face hidden behind sunglasses. Robin Schulz is surrounded by a somewhat mysterious aura. This makes it more fascinating to see how he directly and sensitively communicates with his fans through the music.
