The global 15 date tour “All Knight Long” will see Toolroom Records founder Mark Knight play extended 6+ hour sets at some of the world’s finest clubs.
With more demand than ever for clubs and festivals to pack their line-ups with as many names as possible, the art of the extended set is in danger of being consigned to the history books. But as DJs and clubbers know, the extended set can often be where the greatest dancefloor stories unfold, and the most powerful and long-lasting impressions made.
For me, the mark of a true DJ is someone who can take people on a journey for the entire night. Playing extended sets is something I’ve done many times before and love doing, so I was really keen to put mutiple dates together at some of my favourite clubs in the world.
We’ve specifically chosen intimate venues to I can take people on a really special trip throughout the night: places where you can look around and still be surrounded by the same few hundred people you started out dancing with hour before. I’ve been planning the tour for months, and I can wait to get started.
