Event- Gilles Peterson to play US DJ sets

Radio One “Worldwide” host Gilles Peterson will be appearing in the US this month!  He’ll be performing a DJ set at Cielo Club in New York City on August 18th as part of the Giant Step Thursdays hosted by Giant Step Records.  He’ll also be making stops in LA and Chicago (at LIFT and Crimson Lounge, respectively) and a couple in Canada (full list below).  You can pick up tickets for the NYC event through TicketFly and they’re only $25!

Peterson is coming off of another successful installment of his “Worldwide Festival” in Sete (South of France) which featured many popular acts in electronic music such as James Blake, Quantic, Flying Lotus, among many more including pop sensation Raphael Saadiq.  The next segment of the festival is next month in Singapore.  You can check out the line up for that here.  For more information on Gilles, check out his website GillesPetersonWorldwide.com.
