VITALBEATS will host two big events across two big days this Anzac Day long weekend.

More than 30 DJs and live acts will make up the program when Vitalbeats is held at the MERCURY HOTEL on Saturday and KING STREET HOTEL on Sunday.

A diverse line-up will present a broad choice of styles which includes almost everything in the dance music spectrum from breakbeat, hard trance and hip hop to drum'n'bass, hard house and tribal.

Leading UK hard trance outfit ORGAN DONORS will headline Saturday night's event at the Mercury Hotel with a live performance in the main room alongside seven other DJs.

Comprising SCOTT and MATT HARRIS, Organ Donors are behind the dance label NUKLEUZ and are set to play one of the world's largest dance festivals, DANCEVALLEY, in August.

Internationally recognised Sydney DJ TRENT ANTHONY will take things to a funkier tip in the Front Bar while FUNKTRUST DJs WILL STYLES and LEARNED HAND will cut up breakbeats with old school funk, b-boy beats, hip-hop, house, rock, pop, soul and everything else in between.

There will be little time for recovery when Vitalbeats moves on to King Street Hotel on Sunday, kicking off with an early start at 4pm.

Newcastle electronic outfit ON formerly ON INC will perform live and DJ NIK FISH will launch his new Wax On album.

Downstairs will feature hip hop, funk and R'n'B while upstairs will toughen things up with DJs mixing up hardstyle, progresssive trance, tribal and house.

Advance tickets to each event are $25 from PDMS, ABICUS, RAMJET or you can purchase a ticket for $40 which will allow entry to both events.
