Wolfgang Gartner North American Tour

Monday, February 21st, 2011



As he prepares to release his highly anticipated debut studio album later this spring on Ultra Music, Grammy®-nominated electronic music producer and DJ WOLFGANG GARTNER has announced details for an extensive North American tour.  It will launch with a high-profile performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, FL, Sunday, March 27, where WOLFGANG returns to the event’s main stage for what’s guaranteed to be one of the most eagerly awaited sets.   The remainder of the tour will take WOLFGANG across the U.S., with performances in Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Chicago and several other major U.S. cities; it will also include numerous Canadian shows in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and more. Prior to the tour, WOLFGANG will perform at this year’s SXSW conference Thursday, March 17 at The Phoenix in Austin as part of the Ultra Music Showcase.

One of the world’s fastest rising stars in dance music, WOLFGANG was recently nominated for a Grammy® Award in this year’s ceremony in the “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical” category for his reworked version of house music producer Andy Caldwell’s “Funk Nasty” featuring Gram’ma Funk (Uno Recordings), marking GARTNER’s first-ever Grammy nomination. He celebrated the nomination with a sold-out show in Los Angeles’ exclusive Roxbury nightclub last weekend, where he performed tunes from his forthcoming album to hundreds of wildly enthusiastic fans.

In other recent news, GARTNER has teamed with of Black Eyed Peas fame on a brand new single for the album. Titled “Forever,” the song is currently in treatment for a video that will serve as WOLFGANG’s visual follow-up to his current single “Illmerica.” Directed by Ryan McNamara (A Gentle Man, Stuntditch), the “Illmerica” video captures our country’s torrid 300-year history in clip art style animation, from the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Hiroshima and the Gulf War.

In addition, GARTNER has received two nominations in the 26th Annual International Dance Music Awards (IDMA)—happening March 8-11, 2011, in Miami, FL, as part of the Winter Music Conference—including “Best Electro/Tech House Track” for “Animal Rights,” his collaboration with Ultra Music label mate deadmau5, and “Best Break-Through DJ.” Voting ends Friday, February 18th, 2011.
