THE SMOKE EATERS are now bringing their talents to an international audience playing venues to a wider footprint; Family nightclub in Brisbane, Australia and closer to home in UK, Ireland, Spain, Belgium, Poland, and Romania.

Festival Success

  • Summer 2010 saw them introduced to the festival circuit to rock the legendary Glastonbury Festival with 2 shows in the huge Dance East tent (immediately gaining them repeat bookings at Glastonbury 2011) as well as playing for 3 nights at Ireland’s premier festival Oxegen on a 100m HI Def LED screen – one of the biggest in the world.Here’s a small bit of footage of the massive Oxegen crowd that was filmed by the men themselves whilst they were playing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTcHqP5B1lg

They rounded off the Summer with an outdoor show with massive 360 degree projections at Hungary’s Sziget Festival


THE SMOKE EATERS reputation has lead to some great festival and nightclub bookings in the last 2 years. They’ve taken part in the ‘Amsterdam Dance Event’, supporting UK DMC Champion JFB, and played New Zealand’s premier festival: ‘Splore’.
They’ve had several gigs at the mighty Amsterdam venue: Paradiso and repeatedly been booked at Barcelona’s Razzmatazz. The last edition of ‘Glastonbury Festival’ was their 3rd time playing the festival performing on, not only the Dance Tent, but the enormous ‘Shangri-la Heaven’ stage to several thousand people. With more bookings coming in, the future is looking pretty epic!
