Gouryella Tour Announcement

Ferry Corsten and Tiësto came together back in 1999 to create Gouryella. The duo quickly climbed to the top of the trance scene. By the time Tiësto had departed a mere two years later, Gouryella had already transcended its founders as one of the most memorable names of the genre’s time. Fast forward 16 years here’s a big announcement from Ferry Corsten about Gouryella:

I’m excited to finally be revealing to you all the news that Gouryella will be making its stage debut in 2016! Having spent a long time over the past 5 to 6 years thinking about Gouryella and working on ideas but not quite finding the right production that I felt was suitable for the project. It was a really pleasing moment when I unveiled ‘Anahera’ as the first Gouryella single after such a long time. I’m excited to finally be revealing to you all the news that Gouryella will be making its stage debut in 2016!

Being a project so dear to my heart and one I know you guys are equally passionate about, I can honestly say, I was a little nervous about what the reaction would be after 13 years of no new music from me under the Gouryella name. However, the love and excitement you guys showed around ‘Anahera’ was truly inspiring, and really cemented my decision to write a new chapter in the story of Gouryella.

I’ve always loved the musical qualities that make up the Gouryella sound, and in the time when so much trance is swaying too far to EDM, I want to bring big melodies back to a scene I’ve spent my entire career championing. Gouryella will allow me the opportunity to exercise not only my desire to bring back a sentiment to the scene that I think is lacking in some parts, but equally deliver a new live concept that will represent both the music and visuals, as well as enable me to detail further the mysterious naming which has always made up Gouryella and the titles of the singles.

I look forward to sharing this experience with you!
