Bangin’ Block Parties This Weekend

The weekend is back and for those of you that are still reeling from the massive NDP celebrations (and then some), we’ve got an awesome line-up of parties for you to check out when the clock strikes 6 on Friday.

This weekend, the Esplanade celebrates youth culture with the annual YFest (Aug 12-14). Chock-a block with an exhilarating mix of activities and performances featuring music, dance, art, and spoken word, those with a penchant for life will not want to miss this. Do check the many activities and events such as graffiti showcases, hip hop dance performances, DJ battles and concerts.

The Paris party scene descends upon Zouk this Friday like a tsunami as the club hosts the first Ed Banger Night featuring DJs Busy P, DJ Mehdi, Sebastian and Breakbot. Join them as they spin a mélange of beats from dubstep, hip hop, electro, dance punk and more.

Party rocker Lucky Lou of LMFAO and the Party Rock Crew spins a heady mix of dance anthems at the swanky Ku De Ta this Friday (Aug 12) for a crowd of reprobate party people with lascivious shuffling action adding to the allure.

Selectors Souleance and Darker Than Wax heads up their third foray into soul-funk-house-fuelled territory this Friday at Velvet Underground for the 3rd Party.
