Widely considered the godfather of electronic music, Pete Tong is an English DJ who works for BBC Radio 1 and hosts Essential Mix and Essential Selections. Tong first appeared on the radio in the 1970s on a station called Radio Invicta, which was Europe’s first soul station, and stayed with the company until 1988.
In addition to being one of the most popular radio personalities in England, Europe, and around the world, Tong is one of Ole Britannia’s most recognizable house DJs. From 2003 to 2007, Pete Tong performances at Pacha nightclub in Ibiza drew guests from all over the world.
Tong was instrumental in the founding of the International Music Summit, a three-day annual dance music conference that takes place in Ibiza. The festival, which began in 2008, has been attended by the likes of Robbie Rivera, Mark Ronson, Underworld, and Moby, and serves as both a networking event and an opportunity to discuss the business of electronic music.
Since Pete Tong is regarded as such a great businessman and ambassador for electronic music, it is sometimes easy to forget how great a performer he is too. Grab your Pete Tong tickets today before they sell out tomorrow!
