A few months back, Melbourne Bounce maven Deorro shocked us all, taking to Twitter to announce his retirement from DJing. Despite initial fears that this meant we’d never see or hear from him again, he went on to clarify in later Tweets, outlining that a) his retirement was only temporary, and b) he’d still be running his Pandafunk label and producing music. Months later, his named appeared on the Coachella lineup, and then the announcement came through:
And the panda funk tour has been confirmed. All you new upcoming artists get ready cuz that also means my ass is getting back on the road 👌

Of course our first question following this announcement concerned whether or not he’d pass through Seattle on his brand new tour, and it didn’t take long before we got an answer (hint: It was yes). He’ll be taking the stage at the Showbox Sodo May 7th, taking along fellow Pandafunk artists Dirty Audio, Zoofunktion, and IEZ. Tickets are currently running at $42.50 ($54.58 with fees) for the second tier, and will bump up to $45.50 ($59.15 with fees) once that sells out. Of course with festival season coming up though, money can be tight. That’s why we’re giving you a chance to win 2 tickets to the show — just enter below and check back soon to see if you and a friend will be seeing Deorro free of charge!
