TS5 started out as the most exclusive pre-party hosted by Craig at his penthouse home in Miami. Craig’s set combines massive old skool anthems from R&B to Swing beat, to Garage and Bashment, whilst merging current chart-topping House hits. With Craig’s amazing ability to sing, MC and work the crowd while DJing simultaneously its clear to see how the growth of TS5 has emerged.
Craig is no stranger to the DJ life. Before the success of his solo career, Craig started out as a DJ working the UK club circuit; he then went on to sell over 15 million albums as an artist, enjoying 14 Top 10 hits and achieving multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries.
After posting exclusive sets on Soundcloud gathering thousands of listens every week, TS5’s popularity quickly hit the UK with Capital and Kiss broadcasting Craig’s sets on a Friday and Saturday night. The show gives listeners an hour window into the exclusive TS5 party played live from Miami.
Following a 5 date sell out Australia tour, in October 2015, TS5 premiered on the number 1 radio station in the country, KISS. It was played out at 10pm every Saturday night throughout the country. As well as Australia and the UK, TS5 was also broadcast on the biggest Urban station in New Zealand, Mai FM, and on Blast FM in Northern Ireland.
In under a year, Craig’s TS5 live nights became the most sought after in the UK’s capital city. Tickets to the first TS5 headline show at Oslo Hackney in London in July 2015, sold out in minutes, followed swiftly by a second show at Shapes Hackney in October, which sold out even quicker. Craig David’s TS5 at Koko in London’s Camden in March 2016 also followed suit selling out in a record time, of less than 10 minutes. While his headline TS5 show at the prestigious Brixton Academy sold 5000 tickets in under 3 minutes.
Over the course of summer 2016, TS5 continued to go from strength to strength. With a record breaking 25,000 people packing out the Sonic Stage at Glastonbury, the largest crowd the stage has ever seen in the history of the landmark festival, TS5 continued to grow. In 2017 Craig brought TS5 to over 100,000 people on the world-famous Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury as well as selling out two O2 arenas earlier on in the year.
Selling out venues across the US in 2018 including T5 in New York with a 3,000 capacity and the famous Roxy theatre in LA the TS5 event is becoming renowned for its prestigious party vibes world-wide.
TS5 is now a globally recognised party brand having toured the world, including Australia, US, Japan, Dubai, Bali, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Europe. With over 1.5 million people worldwide experiencing TS5, the growth of the brand is an unstoppable force.
