The Presets make their final 2013 return to Los Angeles for a special show at Club Nokia for X Games on Friday August 2nd.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, The Presets are one of electronic music's most revered duos. 'Pacifica', their latest album, topped many critic's 'best of 2012' lists in Australia for painting bold new strokes across the electronic music landscape. From techno sea-shanties ('Ghosts') to lovelorn electro grooves ('Fall'), the album is bold and singular in vision, both seeking out uncharted musical territories and bringing fresh perspectives to current styles.
For X Games The Presets will be performing a blistering techno set (for the first time in Los Angeles) that encapsulates your favourite moments from their three albums - 'Beams', 'Apoclaypso' and 'Pacifica' - into twists them into hard, driven, spectacular reworkings.
From blistering shows at Treasure Island, CMJ, SXSW, Coachella and Sasquatch Fetsivals - to headlining shows as far flung as Colombia, Agrentina, Australia and New Zealand - the Presets continue to bowl people over worldwide.
"Unequivocally the best live set I’ve ever witnessed in my entire life to date" LA Music Blog, Sep 2012

The Presets will be joined on the night by a stellar cast of the freshest talent around, including Tanlines, Robert DeLong and FMLY BND.
