RÜFÜS DU SOL, is an Australian group from Sydney, that consists of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt. When they aren’t bringing their ambient sounds to the white sand beaches of Tulum, they’re vibing out with musical festival junkies at Coachella, Lollapalooza or Electric Forest. The trio who now play stadiums worldwide, began back in 2010 and just won their first Grammy in the best dance/electronic recording category for their track “Alive.”
This past summer in July of 2021, the group put out ‘Alive’ as their first song in 3 years. Frontman Tyrone Lindqvist said “It’s a heavier song in some ways, but at its core it’s hopeful.”
They originally caught the attention of partygoers in 2015 when their single “You Were Right” won the ARIA Award for Best Dance Release. Their Grammy win follows two previous nominations in 2020, so for them the 3rd time was definitely the charm.
“It’s not the reason we make music, to get accolades, but it is nice to have recognition and have people identify with the work,” they told Billboard ahead of receiving the award.
The hit DJs celebrated their evening with a special one-night only event at private nightclub, Intrigue, inside the Wynn Las Vegas. The post-Grammys festivities began with a red laser light show forming into hues of magenta and cyan. The performers focused on playing songs to get the crowd bobbing up and down to the deep bass. Fans immediately were cheering in congratulations and offered a warm applause in between transitions of beat drops. Their set lasted until around 4:00am, ending with one of their most popular hits, ‘Interbloom’ to close out the late night into early morning.
The Wynn just announced a few days ago that RÜFÜS DU SOL signed a DJ residency for 2022 so fans can expect to see more of them there. RÜFÜS DU SOL is no stranger to the epic Wynn nightlife scene and will fit in seamlessly. Recently, they played a set during the Art of The Wild Festival at XS nightclub.
They also just announced their North American summer tour which kicks off in Chicago starting June.
