Above & Beyond will celebrate their 450th TATW radio show with a landmark event in India on 10 November 2012, teaming up with Submerge, India’s leading dance music promoter. TATW450 will take the form of a marathon 8-hour broadcast with a host of Anjunabeats’ most cutting-edge acts playing alongside Jono, Tony and Paavo.
Having named their legendary Anjunabeats label after a beach in Goa, Above & Beyond’s connection with India is deep and long-standing. With the country’s club scene growing rapidly and a huge thirst for electronic music in the region, Indiawas the perfect destination for this prestigious show.
“India, its people and music have always had a special place in our hearts,” said A&B’s Paavo Siljamaki. “Not only does the dance music culture span thousands of years there, we’ve witnessed incredible growth of the electronic music there since we first started Anjunabeats. TATW450 will be broadcast from the country that was the starting point for everything we do. Let your friends know, join us online and together in India we’ll all make this our biggest global celebration to date.”
The show also represents the first full Group Therapy production in India, following Above & Beyond’s memorable set atSunburn Festival last December. Over the past 18 months, Above & Beyond have toured their Group Therapy themed show across the globe – an epic, no expense spared production with immersive visuals, live messaging from the band and support from Anjunabeats’ finest acts.
Featuring a marathon eight-hour radio broadcast with live participation from those listening in, TATW450 in India will take the Group Therapy experience to its global limits – with fans all over the world connecting and sharing their experiences in real time. If you’ve experienced Group Therapy in your own city, now is the time to experience it with the whole world tuning in.
Nikhil Chinapa from Indian promoters Submerge said: “Ten years ago when we started a dance music collective calledSubmerge, we never expected to get this far this soon. The support that Above & Beyond have extended to the scene inIndia has been critical in bringing about this change. TATW has thousands of fans across India and it has been a key factor in educating and entertaining fans of dance music across the country.”
