Lets get straight to the point. In a time where DJs can become famous overnight Goodwill has spent a decade at the top of the game and in demand. When Goodwill isn’t rocking the main room… of Pacha Ibiza, stage-diving or flying across Europe on Pete Tong’s jet you can find him smashing the main rooms of Australia’s biggest clubs.

Goodwill is the mainstay party-rocking DJ of choice for Australia’s largest events including Big Day Out and Future Music Festival and is the DJ of choice for luminaries such as Axwell, Roger Sanchez and Kaskade. In fact for the last two years The Swedish House Mafia have taken Goodwill to their world-famous Pacha night in Ibiza to show the world just what all the fuss is about.
