The #TourChronicles Ft. Fehrplay


Having just kicked off his North American live tour, Jonas Fehr dubbed ‘Fehrplay‘ hits CODA this Friday, August 11 alongside GRUM on the Anjunabeats Worldwide 07 Tour. The Norwegian export has been on an incredible journey since his breakthrough back in 2010. Dedicated to the lifeblood of Progressive House, it didn’t take long before Eric Prydz welcomed Fehrplay into the Pryda Friends circle. Fast forward to today, and Fehrplay proudly finds a second home for his productions after launching his Mood of Mind label. On September 1, he’ll release his second EP Tannhauser, packed with his trademark deep-proggy sound. Surely fans attending CODA will catch a first listen. Until then, we warmly welcome Fehrplay to this edition of the #TourChronicles.

The biggest myth about ‘life on tour’ is…

That it’s always fun.

One of my worst airport experiences was… 

Just 3 days ago. I lost my passport, and spent 30 hours in the airport. Yey!

The best airport for a long lay-over is…

Helsinki airport (Finland). The Finnair young is a spa.

One of the most ‘surprising’ gigs within the past 6 months was…  

Minneapolis. It was so intimate and fun!

One city that I’ve not yet played, but would like to visit this year is… 

Cape Town, South Africa.

One of my favourite venues in the world to play is… 

Output, New York, the vibe is just too groovy.

Output, New York

Output, New York

One of my favourite festivals in the world to play is… 

Creamfields. The crowd is typical northern English crazy!

This hotel has the BEST food/ room service…

Hmmm though one. But it would have to go to Berns in Stockholm. Killer tuna fillet.

True or False: I’ve been asked for my autograph while on a plane. 

Haha no!

What is on your rider?

Snacks, sugar free redbulls, and lots of tequila!

Where is the weirdest place you’ve been given a demo?

Burning Man, by a practically naked dude. That was weird.

One of my favourite local promoters to work with is… 

Too many to name one.

Besides my gig at CODA, I will try to do this while in Toronto…

Eat Poutine, and have a studio session.

Tell us one of your favourite experiences with an opening or closing DJ:

In the early days I had a gig in Bali. The guy warming up for me was playing pretty heavy EDM. He ended with one of my tracks under a different moniker, which is definitely not a known track, without knowing it was me. We were both baffled when I told him.

My favourite city to after-party in is… 

Detroit or San Francisco

This city feels the most like “home away from home”…  

New York!
