With Above & Beyond’s Saturday 7th April show at O2 Academy Brixton selling out in record time, the Anjunabeats trio have responded to huge demand from fans by adding a second Brixton date on Sunday 8th April to create a Group Therapy Easter Weekender.

Following last month’s additions of Arty and Jaytech to the line-up for the first Brixton show, we are pleased to announce Sander van Doorn and Mat Zo, two heavyweight pioneering forces in electronic music right now, who will be joining Jono, Paavo and Tony in Brixton on Sunday 8th April.

A legend in the dance music world, Dutch maestro Sander Van Doorn arrives hot on the heels of his acclaimed second artist album Elev11. A producer that has long blurred the boundaries between trance, house and tech, Sander has consistently excelled as a trend-setter and enjoyed recent hits such as Drink To Get Drunk and his collaboration with former Bloc Party frontman Kele, What Did I Do.

One of the hottest properties in dance music, the fast-rising Mat Zo is someone that needs little introduction. With crossover anthems like Superman and Mozart (with Arty) getting support from heavyweights like Axwell, Skrillex and, of course, Above & Beyond, the London based innovator is currently putting the finishing touches to his hotly anticipated debut artist album – some of which he will surely be road-testing at the show itself.

With the first London show selling out rapidly and leaving many fans out in the cold, Above & Beyond have created a priority access ticket sign up for the Sunday 8th April event. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale 9am Wednesday 25th January with priority given all those who register via www.facebook.com/aboveandbeyond
Tickets go on general sale 9am Friday 27th January.

At the request of a significant number of fans who’ve expressed interest in attending both shows consecutively, all ticket buyers for the Saturday 7th April event will be offered a discounted ticket link for the Sunday 8th April show, on the date of the pre-sale.

The Group Therapy Easter Weekender kicks off Above & Beyond’s biggest ever UK tour and will see them performing Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and Glasgow. The show takes the DJ set up into the realm of concert theatre, with emotive visuals, live video messaging from the band and a story-telling theme all combining to create a unique dancefloor experience for Above & Beyond’s legion of UK fans.
