Techno powerhouse Charlotte de Witte today announced a return to the road this summer with six production tour dates across Europe.
Fresh off the fumes of the highly anticipated release of her EP, Overdrive, this second lap of de Witte’s larger Overdrive campaign on her KNTXT Label will see her stopping in key cities all over Europe including Barcelona and her hometown of Belgium.
The Overdrive EP is the soundtrack to the break neck speed at which de Witte has pushed herself throughout her ascension to the top of the electronic music scene. An ode to the magic that happens when we drive ourselves past our peak to unlock a new bold, fearless, turbocharged identity, Overdrive delivers high-energy tracks that pulse through the body and electrify the senses. The Overdrive Tour is set to be just as kinetic and high-energy as its eponymous EP, kicking off with two huge shows in Spain – Primavera Sound Barcelona and Primavera Sound Madrid.
“This tour is the next phase of the Overdrive story, and very much embodies the same energy and vibe as my EP,” says de Witte. “It’s all about taking yourself on the farthest personal journey, beyond what you think your limits are, to a point of true liberation. I’m ready to create this energy and feeling – that of being on the edge and living life to the fullest – together with people front- and backstage.”
In conjunction with the announcement of the Overdrive Tour, de Witte will also drop a new merchandise collection in honor of the Overdrive campaign, including hoodies and tees, and a new Overdrive Live Show tour tee. These limited edition pieces will be available throughout summer. Alongside this collection, the KNTXT team has released a limited edition New York tee from their monumental takeover last month and new Konnected tee, a new addition to their evergrowing Essentials collection.
The Overdrive Tour kicks off in Barcelona, Spain at Primavera Sound on June 3, 2023. De Witte will then take her talents all over Europe to Belgium, Portugal, the Netherlands and France. The full tour schedule is as follows:
● June 3, 2023 – PRIMAVERA SOUND, BARCELONA, ES

The Overdrive Campaign
Things kicked off in New York City on May 17 when de Witte hosted a surprise set for thousands of fans on Orchard Street. Her 60-minute performance – which shutdown the iconic East Village street – was a manifestation of the Overdrive EP, with the energy of the crowd and de Witte’s unmistakable sound bouncing from building to building. It was held outside of the KNTXT pop-up at Extra Butter, which carried exclusive merchandise and apparel inspired by the EP. Selling out in less than 48 hours, the drop marked the first time KNTXT merchandise was sold in the United States. De Witte then performed two sold-out shows at Brooklyn Mirage.
Overdrive is de Witte’s first release since her single “High Street,” and first EP release on her KNTXT label since 2022.
