Jon Hopkins has announced tour dates for March next year. The ‘Polarity’ tour will explore a different side to the techno producer than audiences are used to seeing. Live musicians will be incorporated into the set and Hopkins himself will perform some tracks on grand piano.

He says he aims to bring together “the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in my music”, adding that “by going between the two, we’ll hopefully create some profound moments of stillness”.

“Right now I have a set that’s tailored to festivals and to standing crowds and intoxicated people”, he says of his recent shows. “That’s been amazing, but I would say my deepest nature lies in the stillness, the meditative side of my music”.

Tickets go on sale on 13 Sep. Watch the trailer for the show here:
