Zac Efron’s DJ movie is getting a star-packed tour

Former Disney pin-up Zac Efron has a new movie all about the “EDM” scene arriving in Australian cinemas on Thursday 27 August, and while the movie’s trailers have been soundly mocked by the internet, the tracklist for the We Are Your Friends soundtrack dropped last week and contains more than a few surprising gems – and a heavy sprinkling of Australian representation.

We Are Your Friends follows the journey of Zac Efron’s Valley boy – and aspiring producer – Cole Carter as he struggles to make it into the big time, in a sepia-tinted “Entourage for DJs” cinema style. And naturally, the film’s release campaign comes with a North American tour of after-parties for the premiere screenings – plus two special premiere dates in London and Paris – that are packing a seriously star-studded roster.

The #WAYFTour features Aussies Hook N Sling, Anna Lunoe, Will Sparks and tropical house champ Thomas Jack, as well as prog stalwart Michael Woods, Vito & Druzzi (from indie-electro heroes The Rapture), Keys N Krates and California natives MAKJ and Classixx, amongst others.

The tour kicks off this Friday 14 August, and if you’re lucky enough to be in one of the North American premiere cities, you can RSVP for a spot at the after-party show over here. In the meantime, stay tuned for our verdict on We Are Your Friends in late August.
