So Pop Locks in Resident Dj Nick Skitz at All Shows
+ Reveals Set Times
+ Show Hitting New Zealand Next Month!
It’s the final countdown! In a matter of days the ultimate throwback pop concert So Pop will land in Australia and New Zealand, bringing the hottest acts of the 90s and 00s with it.
The Vengabus rolls into Auckland next month and now Frontier Touring and Arena Touring are thrilled to reveal that the final seat has been occupied by none other than an Australian pioneer of dance music Nick Skitz. Toot toot!
Filling party dance floors, Nick Skitz created an era of Hi NRG, techno and dance music mixes in the 90s. In 2015 Skitz celebrated 20 years as an artist with the release of the 50th edition of Skitzmix - the multi-annual, longest-running club scene CD series in Australian music history.
Credited for starting the megamix craze Down Under, Skitz has a whopping 43 Top 10 albums on the ARIA Dance Chart, ARIA Platinum single ‘Excalibur’, UK #2 Dance Chart single ‘The Ultimate’, and US #1 Dance Radio Chart banger ‘You Got The Love’ under his belt, and has teamed up with Australian icons The Choirboys for a hyped rendition of their classic ‘Run To Paradise’.
Hitting the decks at all shows and keeping dance moves tight in between live sets, call your Skitz Army together and get jiggy with it at So Pop!
