april 20 • MIXTAPE festival

The time has come to relive your youth, grab your boom box, load up a fresh cassette and party like it’s 1985. Here’s what to know before you go. 

Inspired by the 80s classic rock, the time has come to relive your youth, grab your boom box, load up a fresh cassette and party like it’s 1985. We will have you experiencing the best of the go-go decade–from  MTV, to mix tapes, to metal. Bring your mullets, makeup, and acid washed jeans as we enjoy together the sweet buzz of an epic 80s revival.

Let’s get back to the future as we infuse hair bands, acid wash denim, metal and mauls. 

 Feel good vibes, Great drinks, Smooth dancing and Dreamy costumes
