The news was revealed via a post on Aphex’s official Twitter account today (14 January), also indicating that ticket pre-sale opens at 10am (EST) on 16 January. The announcement comes after posters were spotted in the Brooklyn area bearing Aphex Twin’s distinctive logo superimposed onto an NYC map, alongside the date “04.11.19”. Similar advertisements were used before the musician’s Coachella sets, booked for 13 and 20 April respectively, were announced.
Shortly before his concert in Brooklyn, Aphex Twin will also play his first ever Mexico date at Toluca’s Ceremonia Festival on 6 April.
