Ministry of Sound to celebrate clubbing’s golden era with Testament tour

Words by Staff Writer

After an incredible national tour in 2023, Ministry of Sound are journeying back to the underground this August with their biggest tour yet.

Presented over two specially curated sessions (90s & 00s) across seven cities, Testament celebrates the golden era of clubbing, taking over venues, clubs and warehouse spaces where dance music fuelled generations of unity on the dancefloor.

Testament reignites a passion for vibrant late-night cities and club cultures across the country. Returning to some of our most loved dancefloors, the 2024 tour sees the addition of some exciting new spaces, including the truly epic White Bay Power Station, which is opening its doors for the first time to a large-scale music event of this kind, Felons Barrel Hall for Brisbane, a day session at The Court in Perth and an additional tour stop to the Sunshine Coast – along with The Timber Yard [Melbourne], The Studio [Auckland], Miami Marketta [Gold Coast].

With an incredible lineup of the most significant global names of the era, Testament dives deep into the music, the people, the places & the crews who made the 90s & 00s such an iconic era for all of us who know what ‘proper clubbing’ really means.

From Australia’s acid house infancy to the many reinventions of rave through the 90s and the peak of 00s nightlife, Ministry of Sound will be showcasing an iconic lineup of global legends, whose influence is woven into the fabric of modern club life. Headliners include the godfather of acid rave Danny Rampling (UK), house music pioneer Judge Jules (UK), and legendary DJ/producer Seb Fontaine (UK) – all bringing their 90s mastery.

Session Two celebrates sweaty hedonistic 00s dancefloors; with Dutch heavyweight Laidback Luke (NL), big room house maestro Mousse T. (GER), and English electronic dance music duo X-Press 2 (UK) taking the helm.

Adding to the lineup are a huge suite of local talent, plus Ministry of Sound’s Australian legends – John Course, Mark Dynamix & Dirty South – who between them compiled and mixed album titles that went on to sell millions of copies through the decades across The Annual, Sessions, Clubbers Guide and more. Joining the tour once again will be dancefloor favourite and party icon Minx.
