The duo will head out on tour from June to September, taking in dates at AVA festival in Belfast, Panorama Bar in Berlin, Dekmantel Festival in Amsterdam and Dada in Beijing.

Other dates include Into The Valley festival in Sweden, Skye Live festival on the Isle of Skye and Rex Club in Paris, taking in over 25 destinations in total.

Optimo founded their night at the Sub Club in 1997 - which ran every Sunday for 14 years - and have since become one of Scotland’s most iconic clubbing duos. Celebrating 20 years their first party, the duo will also mark the anniversary with their own mini-festival, Optimo 20, the first dance event to take place in The Galvanizers Yard, a brand new event space in Glasgow’s Finneston, adjacent to SWG3.

Scheduled for Sunday 6th August, the festival will feature a strong live and international line-up over three stages, with live acts including Adult, Aurora Halal, King Ayisoba and K-X-P; while The Black Madonna, Midland, Ben UFO and Avalon Emerson will DJ alongside Optimo and more.
