Bob Sinclair, Idris Elba, More Announced On Defected Records’ "The Kick Off" UEFA Event
Defected Records has joined forces with Heineken, the official partner of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, to launch "The Kick Off," an 8-hour virtual festival on Sunday, August 9th. The event was created to match up with the launch of the revised 3-week tournament format for the leagues in a way to bring together fans across the world.
Defected Records enlisted Bob Sinclair, Idris Elba, Purple Disco Machine, Monki, Ferreck Dawn, Low Steppa, Melvo Baptiste, and Aline Rocha to log on from various locations across the globe for one hour, each with the mission to throw down the best in house, electro, and more to commemorate the monumental occasion. After the successful launch of the Defected Virtual Festival series, the venerated label decided that it's time to bring its state-of-the-art production back to the comfort of your living room.
