FOLSOM STREET EVENTS ANNOUNCES EXCITING PLANS FOR ITS SIGNATURE, OFFICIAL DANCE PARTIES
This year marks the 10TH annual Bay of Pigs and the 20TH annual Magnitude. In celebration of these two landmark events, Folsom Street Events is going live with early ticket sales. Both Bay of Pigs and Magnitude are expanding in new and different ways with each party adding special features. Online tickets now available.
According to Demetri Moshoyannis, Executive Director, “Up Your Alley is our more intimate warm-up weekend for the season. Like last year, we will present Hog Wild as a gear night at SF Eagle with tickets available only at the door. The 10TH Bay of Pigs will be celebrating in style with amazing DJ talent in Wayne G. and Philip Grasso. And, the upstairs space at Factory will be open as well. We were just told that Bay of Pigs will be the VERY LAST event ever to be held at the Factory space. Finally, we have added ROUGH as the new Official Closing Party with powerhouse DJs Russ Rich and Paul Goodyear at Mezzanine. If you haven’t been to Mezzanine lately, the upgraded sound and lighting systems are an essential experience.”
Demetri added, “For the 20TH Magnitude, we are blowing things up completely! This year, the party will take place in The Midway, an already legendary space. Epic DJs Chus & Cabellos from Spain will be throwing down an insane mix with supporting sets from circuit legend Joe Gauthreaux and Citizen Jane out of Miami. The festival-style lighting and stage shows will be unlike anything we’ve ever presented. The infamous dungeon will be expanded to accommodate even more of our attendees. Jack Chang and Paul Goodyear will spin in the Legacy Room, paying a musical homage to the last 20 years of the event.” More information about the event is available HERE.
Demetri concluded, “For the 7th year, Folsom Street Fair ends its week of naughty festivities with the official closing event, DEVIANTS: Adult Arcade, starting Sunday at 6pm sharp. Continuing the open-air vibes of Folsom, the party starts directly after the fair with a DJ stage on Stevenson Street behind Mezzanine. Advanced tickets are advised, as our veritable explosion of freak décor and public perversion guarantees a sell out event every year. Exhibiting a sharp underground musical taste, 2016’s edition marks the Bay Area debut of Tuff City Kids, a supergroup formed by German electronic music legends Lauer and Gerd Janson. Dancing therapy will also be in the hands of the Honey Soundsystem DJs and Roi Perez (Tel Aviv). Gear, fetish, and/or drag are encouraged.”
