On January 30, legendary Detroit techno heavyweights, Jeff Mills and Derrick May perform on the same stage in a world first, one-night-only concert with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. The combination of the mighty MSO with Mills, renowned for his relentless pursuit of hardness and stripped down industrial sets, and May who continually tests the limits of spirit within electronic music will redefine live music. Don’t miss out.

Mills’ performance will be an all-new, never-before-performed set especially created with composer Thomas Roussel for Melbourne audiences, while May’s set is entitled ‘Music is Music’ – a homage to his early moniker Rhythim is Rhythim.
