Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ European Summer Tour 2012

Afrojack, one of the world’s most prominent DJs and producers, is about to set off on the largest European summer tour in his career. For over two months, Afrojack will cross almost every border in Europe to play the continent’s most prestigious festivals and venues starting on the sixth of July. Afrojack will visit nineteen different countries in less than three months to play at an imposing total of over forty shows including Tomorrowland (Belgium), Creamfields (England), Balaton Sound (Hungary) and Global Gathering (England and Ukraine).

Besides playing at Europe’s most anticipated summer events, Afrojack adds several of his own ‘Jacked’ events to his hectic schedule. The ‘Jacked’ events at Ibiza’s legendary club Amnesia, BCM Mallorca and a ‘Jacked’ take-over during ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ at Pacha Ibiza – hosted by world’s #1 DJ David Guetta – are assured highlights of Afrojack’s extensive summer tour.

Since the foundation of Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ in July 2011, the party concept has expanded to one of world’s most popular club nights. R3hab, Shermanology, Apster and Bobby Burns, who all form a part of Afrojack’s valued imprint Wall Recordings, will join Afrojack during the upcoming ‘Jacked’ events and select dates of the tour.

Afrojack returns to Europe right after his first own ‘Jacked’ tour in North America. The #7 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 hosted over 40 of his infamous ‘Jacked’ parties in cities like Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Atlantic City. In addition to his own tour dates, Afrojack delivered mind-blowing performances at multiple major American festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Daisy Carnival New York and Coachella.

Soon after this summer tour, Afrojack will release his long awaited album. Afrojack produced the album earlier this year during his stay in Los Angeles and will include collaborations with a number of world known artists. Afrojack will surely preview tracks of this forthcoming album during his shows in the next months.
