Rüfüs Du Sol, styled as RÜFÜS DU SOL and formerly known as simply RÜFÜS from 2010 to 2018, is an Australian alternative dance group from Sydney, that consists of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt; they had to change their name from RÜFÜS to Rüfüs Du Sol when coming to America because RÜFÜS was already taken.
Their debut album Atlas peaked at number 1 in Australia, while their second album Bloom debuted atop the Australian albums chart in early 2016. Their single You Were Right won the ARIA Award for Best Dance Release in 2015. They have performed at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in NSW in 2013, Byron Bay’s Splendour in the Grass in 2014, Electric Forest Festival at Double JJ Resort in 2016 and 2018, Mountain Sounds (festival) in 2017 in NSW, Coachella in 2016, 2017, and 2019, as well as Field Day on New Years Day in Sydney in 2019. They were also set to perform at Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas for Art of the Wild 2020.
Floating on cloud nine following their two recent GRAMMY Awards nominations, live electronic band RÜFÜS DU SOL (previously RÜFÜS) have taken their career one step further with the band’s new audiovisual experience, Live from Joshua Tree. The film premiered at the Vista Theatre in Los Feliz on Tuesday, February 18th to a sold-out house of over 400 attendees.
With their thrilling live sets and melodic electronic beats, the Los Angeles-based trio have steadily traversed their way into mainstream culture since dropping their first studio album, Atlas, in 2014. Throughout the 45-minute immersive film, the band performs an exclusive live set featuring pieces from their three highly revered studio albums as well as new material with majestic Joshua Tree National Park providing quite a scenic backdrop.
