Above & Beyond’s unprecedented dual feature film package of the documentary Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up the Day Job with the accompanying full-length concert film (included in the iTunes Extras), is exclusively available now via iTunes at apple.co/aboveandbeyond
Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up The Day Job follows the group’s unlikely journey from the DJ booth to the Hollywood Bowl, from the initial re-imagining of songs at Abbey Road Studios, through to their presentation at iconic global venues such as London’s Royal Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House and finally the Hollywood Bowl. With a travelling party of 17 musicians plus a 34-piece orchestra in LA, the new film is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at one of the world’s biggest dance acts as they risk it all to go acoustic.
Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up the Day Job was directed by award-winning directors Paul Dugdale and Myles Desenberg. Paul Dugdale with Scheme Engine (Ed Sheeran: Jumpers For Goalposts, The Rolling Stones Olé, Olé, Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America) directed the live concert at The Hollywood Bowl, and Myles Desenberg of BAFTA-nominated production company Archer’s Mark, directed the tour documentary.

About Above & Beyond
Over their four critically acclaimed studio albums, along with their acoustic project, ABOVE & BEYOND— Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki — have continually been celebrated for placing real musicianship and songwriting at the heart of what they do. While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, ABOVE & BEYOND’s songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world’s biggest stadiums and stages – from Alexandra Palace, to Madison Square Garden, to LA’s Forum, to their famed gig in front of one million people at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
ABOVE & BEYOND were the first British DJs to sell out Madison Square Garden and the Forum in Los Angeles and have previously sold out the Hollywood Bowl, Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, O2 Arena, Wembley Arena, Alexandra Palace, Ziggo Dome (Amsterdam), All Phones Arena (Sydney), Sidney Myer Music Bowl (Melbourne), Red Rocks (Denver) and The Greek Theatre (Los Angeles and San Francisco), as well as the 23,000 capacity Gorge Amphitheatre in September 2017. The band’s most recent album “Common Ground” entered the Billboard 200 at number three, with over 120,000 tickets sold on the resulting North American tour (including venues such as Barclays Center, Bill Graham and Red Rocks). Over the course of four electronic artist albums, two acoustic albums and 13 mixed compilations, the trio has built one of the most passionate and dedicated fan bases in the global dance music scene.
