Tiesto flies in for Planetlove anniversary

World famous dance music star Tiesto is to play at Planetlove's first ever weekend event on the banks of Lough Neagh this September.

To mark the massive dance event's 10th birthday, the organisers of Planetlove decided to extend the party to festival status with a star-studded line-up and camping.

Thousands of dance music fans are expected to descend upon Shane's Castle in Co Antrim for the two-day event on Friday, September 5 and Saturday, September 6.

Dutch DJ Tiesto — a world leader in trance and electronic music — will bring his In Search of Sunrise Tour to Shane's Castle on September 5. The last time he appeareód in Northern Ireland in March 2007 for a King's Hall show, tickets sold out within a fortnight of going on sale. His concert shows have seen him transformed from famous DJ to international superstar.

The line-up for September 6 will be unveiled on Plantlove's official website on June 6 at www.planetlovemusic.com . Radio One will once again broadcast the event.

Planetlove began life 10 years ago when husband and wife team Eddie Wray and Judith Farrell-Rowan decided to throw a huge outdoor party for dance fans. Since then, it has become one of the biggest events in the Irish dance music calender.

Eddie said: "This is the most exciting festival that we have worked on over the last 10 years. It's the first weekend event that we've run, with a star-studded line up, camping and with birthday and production surprises."

A limited number of Early Bird weekend tickets are due to go on sale today from www.planetlove.music.com/shop and usual outlets, priced £85 (plus booking fee, includes Friday and Saturday admission, free camping and car parking.)
