Ocean City Sounds: Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra Bring Ibiza To Plymouth Hoe
Plus Becky Hill, Tom Findlay and Danny Howard brought Day 2 of MTV Presents to a banging close...
After a scorching first day, the clouds gathered over Plymouth Hoe on Day 2 of Ocean City Sounds ready to be blown away by a taste of Ibiza. Enter Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley.
Following warm ups from Radio 1's Danny Howard, Groove Armada's Tom Findlay and a live set from Becky Hill, thousands of revellers on the Hoe were waiting with baited breath for the spectacle of the day's headline event - the legendary DJ and tastemaker Pete Tong and his hugely anticipated live orchestral experience...
WATCH RAYE PERFORM 'BODY LANGUAGE/YOU DON'T KNOW ME' WITH PETE TONG & THE HERITAGE ORCHESTRA:
With a 60+ member strong army of instrumentalists, Pete Tong, conductor Jules Buckley and a team of vocalists turned up the nostalgia factor to 11 for a set of Ibiza classics, performed like never before and coupled with an incredible laser and light show.
Classic crowd-pleasing club floor fillers like 'Lola's Theme', 'Pjanoo', 'Galvanise' and Swedish House Mafia's 'One' were reinvented live on stage as well as lesser known, but equally banging anthems such as 'Man With The Red Face', 'Yeke Yeke' and more.
Energy 52's 'Cafe Del Mar' was a euphoric highlight as was a double cameo from Becky Hill who joined the ensemble for sing-a-long renditions of 'Sing It Back' and 'You Got The Love'.
But the double finale of Faithless' infamous 'Insomnia' and The Prodigy's 'Out Of Space' really tore the metaphorical roof off Plymouth's outdoor arena for the perfect end to an incredible two days of live music.
Plymouth, we love you.
