Astari Nite Inks New Management Deal and a Slot on Ultra Music Festival

Local post-punkers Astari Nite may not have been playing an overload of shows within the county's borders lately. But that doesn't mean they've been quiet.

Instead, the foursome's been gigging frequently through the rest of South Florida, most recently at Respectable's annual New Year's shebang in West Palm.

They've also been making bigger moves, recently signing a new management deal with Creator Entertainment.

Based here in Miami as well as Las Vegas and Toronto, the new company is helmed by veteran concert promoter Danny Chasan, who first encountered the group at a local show they played alongside People From Venus. "As fate may have it, we met again at a local venue and discussed future plans," says Astari Nite guitarist Albert Grey. "He suggested that we stay in touch with him and we have been in contact ever since."

It's a fortuitous partnership, considering Chasan has acted as marketing director for Ultra Music Festival for the past eight years. That means the band will get a chance to perform for probably its largest crowd to date this year, thanks to a live slot on the festival on Saturday, March 26. (Exact time and stage details are still TBA.) 

Meanwhile, already in the works are a full-scale East Coast tour, dubbed the Politics of Love tour, kicking off at Respectable Street on February 18. That's timed to coincide with the release of the band's second, still untitled EP. 

A couple of West Coast showcases are planned after that, as well as a possible European tour this summer, and recording sessions for the band's first proper full-length.

For a look at the band's most recent material, check out the above live snippet of "Astrid," the first single off the band's new EP, recorded at Revolution last month.

I’m sure you older gentleman can find something else to do besides complain about a couple of kids making their dreams happen perhaps you should try the same if you feel so poorly and need to bash someone, try a better paying job or a girlfriend or boyfriend you might enjoy life a bit more rather than sounding so bitter


Yawn, and this is why Ultra has been going downhill ever sice with EDM.


great band!

I <3 Arielle C.


I have to disagree with you. I highly doubt the dreams of Astari Night were ever to play at an electronic music festival. In fact, what about their music is even vaguely electronic? They don't fit into the mix of Ultra and I actually find this slightly disappointing.


It looks like Ultra is trying to be more of a general festival like Coachella and lollapalooza which doesn't seem like such a bad move. I rather see some bands than some dude with his laptop.
