Ladies and Gentlemen, we are proud to introduce Pete Tong as one of the burn Residency mentors for 2014!
Over a successful and trailblazing career of more than 25 years, Pete Tong has become synonymous with dance music. Often referred to as the Global Ambassador for electronic music, Pete’s influence on both the genre he champions and the artists within it cannot be overstated. His BBC Radio 1 show is into its 22nd year, and still the destination for dance music fans to find out what’s hot. To be featured on his Essential Mix show is widely recognized as a sign of an artist coming of age.
Recently Pete began broadcasting daily across USA on Evolution, a new Electronic Dance Music (EDM) station on iHeartRadio, Clear Channel’s industry-leading digital radio platform. Additionally, his FFRR record label remains a hotbed of exciting new music. Pete is one of the co-founders of the electronic music department at William Morris Endeavor (WME), and co-founder of the IMS International Music Summit, the global industry forum for electronic music, which takes place annually in Ibiza and LA. If that weren’t enough, his “All Gone Pete Tong” event brand is often seen taking over the world’s best clubs and festivals, supported by a successful compilation series of the same name.
All this makes Pete the ideal headline mentor for burn Residency.
