She's no stranger to the techno stage at Australia's leading festivals, warming up for the greats in her field – Claude Von Stroke, Jamie Jones and Guy Gerber are just a few of the peers GABBY's supported at Stereosonic and Future Music Festival in the past year. Now a key member of Finely Tuned's agency roster she's warming up the decks for Heidi this Saturday in Agwa Yacht Club's Afterparty and lined up to join Guy Gerber, Dixon and Emerson Todd aboard Agwa Yacht Club 016.

With 7 years of DJ'ing behind her, and in her second season as a resident at Salina's beach in Ibiza, Mia is taking the inevitable next steps. She has a weekly radio show on Ibiza Global, "Signing In," where each week, audiences from around the world can sign in to 60 minutes of Mia's favourite new and old tunes, from deep and moody house to bouncy techno. She is also hitting the studio hard, with her first single featuring Stee Downes, due out soon. Add this to her growing number of Berlin, Sydney and Ibiza gigs (she recently played at the Mother Recordings party at Katerholzig) and her growing list of international supports, including Damian Lazarus, Jamie Jones, Art Department, and her Circoloco Australia residency, it is fair to say that Mia Lucci has only just 'signed in' for what is already and what will no doubt be - a journey not to be missed. Mia was also the one to warm up the main stage for Australia's first RebelRave last year that saw her join Damian Lazarus, Russ Yallop, Art Department, Danny Daze, Brohn and Amirali.
