Dutch duo W&W will shock Tulip Festival audiences this week at Ottawa City Hall as part of Electrik Tulipe.
The twosome is made up of Willem van Hanegem Jr and Wardt van der Harst, who met in 2007.
Their first single, “Mustang,” was an instant hit and was embraced by world-renowned DJs like Armin Van Buuren and Tiësto.
Electrik Tulipe is being promoted as a precursor to this summer’s Escapade Festival. Last year, one of Escapade’s organizers and, coincidentally, a former nightclub co-worker of mine, stole $600,000 and was apprehended in Aruba.
Montreal-born DJ Ariyan will open the event.
