Event description

Description

After the rocking Holi Hai Color Festival Party, it's time to get down to two of the hottest dance music genres in the world.

Afrobeat Meets Bollywood Night

A global bass dance party dedicated to unity.

At a time when so much seems to divide us, we look to music from across the world as a way to unite once more. On the dance floor, where you come from and where you're going ceases to matter; all that matters is the here and the now.
