This is the complete event that you will find no where else on the internet. I have searched out the hottest parties of the year and these are not promoters who paid me in some way to be listed on the site. If you wish to get your party or event listed then please email us with the contact link.
Non US/Canada events: If you live somewhere besides North America then check out our pages for Brazil and London. More to come on these fun exotic party places. I definitely want to make it a goal to see more hidden treasure clubs across the world and hear some sexy beats in 2009.
This list does not include the huge pride events around the country and the protests that you should make sure you attend. We will try and list those when we get the dates.
