In August the music of Fatboy Slim, Hilltop Hoods, Massive Attack, Bag Raiders and Shapeshifters will be reinvented with an orchestra.

Orchestrated will take place in Sydney and Melbourne.

“After working in clubs and events for 25 years, the chance to take these much loved records onto a big stage in this exciting new format with a full orchestra is a brand new chapter in the ever evolving story of the Ministry Of Sound brand” says Tim McGee, CEO, Ministry of Sound Events Australia.

The orchestra will be led by acclaimed conductor Guy Noble, alongside musical director Adam Sofo and with music arranged by platinum-selling artist and composer Lionel Towers (Gypsy & The Cat). Together, with some incredible guest vocalists, Orchestratedwill deliver an unforgettable experience combining the best of electronica with the spine tingling moments created by a live orchestra.

Leading the special guest vocalists is Australian soul singer Daniel Merriweather. Melbourne-born Merriweather broke onto the international scene in 2007, guesting on Mark Ronson’s highly acclaimed Version album. Merriweather’s debut solo album Love & War reached No. 2 on the UK albums chart and lead him to win Best Male Artist at the ARIA Awards in 2009.

Joining Merriweather will be one of Australia’s best live vocalist’s Owl Eyes, who has toured the world as Flight Facilities’ premiere guest vocalist as well as releasing her own classic contemporary and forward thinking alt-pop music.

Orchestrated dates

Fri 11 Aug | Hamer Hall | Melbourne, VIC (All Ages)
Fri 18 Aug | State Theatre | Sydney, NSW (All Ages)
