Itís fair to say that Pete Tongís history is intertwined with the history of acid house and electronic music itself. His career mirrors the story of dance music over the last 25 years. A true renaissance man, Pete has never been about one thing and 2011 represents a significant milestone. The year has seen Radio 1 hold a special 12 hour takeover on the station celebrating Peteís 20 years on their airwaves, in March he held his Miami Pool Party (with Hawtin, Luciano, Joris Voorn, Riva Starr and others), and heís released two new compilations, Future Underground, (mixed alongside Riva Starr) and All Gone Ibiza í11 (mixed alongside Felix Da Housecat) on Defected.
His announcement about returning to Pacha, Ibiza this summer with Pure Pacha presents All Gone Pete Tong has quickly become the biggest story of Ibiza 2011 Ė with guests including Seal, Aloe Blacc, Dev, Yasmin, 2ManyDjs, Gui Boratto, Derrick Carter, Laurent Garnier (L.B.S), Guy Gerber, Calvin Harris, Felix Da Housecat, Paul Kalkbrenner, Steve Lawler, Laidback Luke, Paul Oakenfold, Stacey Pullen, and many more. Over coming months heíll split his time between UK, Ibiza and Vegas where a 6 month Residency at Wynn is in full flow!
Pete has also been chosen to close the East Dance stage at this yearís Glastonbury festival. On the Sunday night heíll round off proceedings with a set featuring special edits and more than a few surprises. Add to all this his constant touring, production work, remixes, music supervision, film scoring, and a weekly Radio 1 show, and heís without question the busiest man in dance.
