Hayden James

The Australian born House producer has been steadily gaining popularity in his home country and America since his debut EP, Hayden James. He has appeared at several iconic festivals throughout North America including tours with Odesza and most notably at Coachella last year. House music fans are certainly in for something special when he comes to the Crocodile on October 26th.

Wolfgang Gartner

With 8 of his songs having held the #1 spot on Beatport’s top 10 chart, a Grammy nomination in 2010, and performances in some of the world’s largest music festivals, Wolfgang Gartner certainly doesn’t need further introduction. The 34 year old is just returning to the dance music scene in 2016 after a one year absence and comes to Foundation Nightclub on September 14th.
