Enter to win these packages worth well over $250 below. Continue Reading

Labor Day is finally here, and it’s looking like it’s going to be a beautiful weekend by the beach for this year’s Pacific Festival in Newport Beach. A “new musical experience at a seaside venue,” Pacific Festival aims to offer a festival experience unlike any other that you’ll find this holiday weekend, as the location is absolutely unique and the producers have curated talent this year to specifically cater to a beachside vibe. As you might have noticed, we’ve changed up the event flyer to highlight our favorite dance acts that will be performing this Sunday, so to see the full lineup as well as information on the PRE and AFTER PARTIES happening Saturday and Sunday nights at Detroit bar, read on…

For those of you that were lucky enough to catch Fred Falke‘s set at Pacific Festival in Orange County this year, you’d probably say that he was an easy top 3 performance of the entire day. Unfortunately, I was at the merch booth slanging out tank tops and t-shirts, so I only got to catch about 10 minutes of his auditory delight, but that longing will be fulfilled this Friday as the Berlin-born, France-based producer comes to the Avalon alongside fellow French Touch master, Lifelike, and a live performance from Anoraak. Leave your fist-pumping homies at home for this one.

Please RSVP names to JONAH@GOTTADANCEDIRTY.COM to be on our discount guestlist for the evening. All names must be submitted by 5:30PM on Friday.

$15 before 11PM

Set Times:
9:30-11:00PM : Social Cues
