Paul Oakenfold, The Crystal Method, BT, Roni Size, Josh Wink, DJ Dan, Carl Craig (performing with Paperclip People), Misstress Barbara, Mixmaster Mike, DJ Skribble, and Mr. C are just a smattering of the turntable enabled scheduled to perform.

The Spitkicker tour – De La Soul‘s brainchild – will join Mekka on some dates. Common, Biz Markie, Talib Kweli, Pharoah Monch, Black Thought, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, are some of the artists featured in the lineup.

Beginning August 4 in Detroit, America’s home-base of electronic music, the Mekka Tour moves on to Toronto, Tampa, Miami, Dallas, New York, St. Louis, Chicago, Los Angeles, and ends September 2 in San Francisco.

The outing marks Mekka Entertainment’s official launch into the touring festival world, but the company isn’t new to the scene. It’s had a hand in the recent Detroit Electronic Music Festival and is involved in the 2001 Winter Music Conference in Miami.

Mekka Entertainment’s goal is to unite the global music community through both physical (concerts) and virtual (Internet) means.
