Alex Jukes, director of Jukebox and The Tribes, said: “We are super-excited to have put together a team including some of the strongest partners and most talented presenters, producers and content creators in the industry. Over the last four years since we launched The Tribes, we have developed one of the highest engaged audiences and reach in electronic dance music across social media. With Tribes TV, we hope to take this to another level again and create engaging, fun and behind-the-scenes content from your favourite parties across the world with your favourite artists and brands.’”
Tribes TV has put together a team with Ibiza-based, bilingual presenter Katie Knight leading the project. Knight has hosted electronic music TV shows for the likes of Awakenings Festival, DJ Mag and Ibiza Spotlight, as well as events like the DJ Mag Awards, ADE & IMS.
