Pete Tong

The measure of a true great performing act is when their name becomes synonymous with their sound, and Pete Tong is immediately known for being one of the world’s best DJ’s. Taking raves from the underground clubs and warehouses to the mainstream, few can be regarded as having been so influential.

This summer sees Pete Tong present Ibiza Classics at Cardiff Castle on Saturday 28th of July. There, he will be joined by The Heritage Orchestra for a night which fuses dance anthems with classically trained musicians.

Pete Tong tickets are available from 10:00 on Friday.
