Boxfresh are bringing two of the hottest underground electro acts together for the first ever Boxreshers Tour.

RSS (‘The Reverend’ Jon McClure’s new electro outfit) and Ocelot will be hitting nine universities during the busy freshers weeks – these live acts will be supported by Mixmag DJs and various guest appearances.

Be warned, the Boxfreshers tour isn’t a bog standard run of live dates. On each date, the Boxfreshers crew will be landing a pop-up shop on campus from 10am – the Boxfresh pop-up shop will be kitted out with a FIFA11 game pod, a selection of limited edition artist t-shirts and other current Boxfresh stock.

The Mixmag DJ’s will be spinning tunes, and there’ll be stacks of Boxfresh Freshers Survival Kits full of goodies. FIFA 11 will be officially released on 1st October, 2010 – which means that anyone dropping in to the Boxfreshers pop-up shop will gain exclusive pre-release access to test drive the brilliant new football video game.

By night, the Boxfreshers collective will be hosting a huge party in the Students’ Unions – RSS and Ocelot will be playing live, the Mixmag DJs will be back to get the party started, and Kano will be making an appearance on key dates.

In addition to the daytime pop-up shop parties, and the night time raves, Boxfresh are giving full kit sponsorship to each University, for their uni (sports) team of their choice.
