Instead of only focusing on DJs, DJ Skate Nights 2013/14 expands its scope by looking at the parties that draw dancers to clubs all across Toronto.
This season we explore the emerging events that are shaping Toronto’s underground nightlife as well as those that have laid the groundwork for Toronto’s party scene. With parties such as Shindig, Uma Nota, SLOWED, Pop! Goes the World and Yes Yes Y’all representing the new school and 1 LOVE T.O., Footprints, Cherry Bomb, and premier DJs Skratch Bastid, Dr. Jay de Soca Prince and Starting from Scratch representing the legends of our scene, this year’s DJ Skate Nights series proves to be one of the most memorable of them all.
DJ Skate Nights is a great opportunity not just for audiences to skate and dance on the ice to their favourite songs, but also for DJs to play to a different type of dance floor and to win over some new fans.
The approach to this year’s lineup follows the history of this exciting series by working within the framework of two
Big IDEAs that fall within this season: curious and legacy.
