One of the world’s biggest electronic music stars – DJ Carl Cox – will perform at the AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand Kawarau Bungy Centre this weekend.
The multi-award-winning British-born, Melbourne-based dance DJ will appear for one sold-out Queenstown concert at the iconic bungy venue this Sunday, February 6, from 6pm until midnight. In addition, concertgoers can take part in a rare offer to bungy jump from the historic Kawarau Bridge between 6-10pm, while Cox performs.
AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand co-founder Henry van Asch says: “Carl is one of the biggest names in the global dance scene and we’re excited to have him play at the ‘World Home of Bungy’. We were blown away by the interest in the event, which sold out in under 20 minutes.”
Cox will be joined by two spectacular supporting acts, UK-based DJ Josh Butler and Australian DJ and music producer Juliet Fox, who’s best known for her work in the clubs of Ibiza, London and Berlin.
It’s not the first time the Kawarau Bungy Centre has hosted acclaimed international acts. Festivals such as Snow & Bass and Snow Machine have had DJs perform there in the past.
“The location and design of the Kawarau Bungy Centre makes it one of New Zealand’s most unique venues and is perfectly suited for these types of international acts. It’s not every day you can Bungy jump off a bridge while listening to Carl Cox perform live,” adds van Asch.
“When the right opportunity and the right artist comes along, it’s a no brainer for us to host a gig at the site. It’s fantastic that the Kawarau Bungy Centre is now on the map as one of New Zealand’s key live music destinations.”
Carl Cox promoter Audiology Touring group director Mitch Lowe says the venue offers concertgoers the rare opportunity to see an artist with Cox’s level of international credibility performing in close proximity.
“We are extremely excited to have Carl Cox perform at the Kawarau Bungy Centre,” Lowe says. “This will be a truly unique experience for Queenstown, and hopefully something that we can build on as a location for future tours.”
