The Dallas Eagle

This year Roar! returns Thursday night with DJ John LePage (San Francisco) at the Dallas Eagle.

A professional DJ since 1996 John has proven himself an enduring talent. A residency at Splash NYC in the late 90’s led to gigs across the continent including Black & Blue Week-end in Montreal, Miami’s White & Winter Party Weekends, and clubs in Denver, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia & Puerto Vallarta.

Dallas Eagle, Dallas’s premier Leather-Levi-Bear bar, is home to the perfect combination of a hot dance floor, expansive patio and friendly staff. And with its inclusive atmosphere, you’ll feel right at home exploring a sea of sexiness with people from all scenes and tribes.

Friday’s opening party for Purple Party Weekend always turns up the heat and sets the stage for an amazing weekend, and this year is no different with DJ Nina Flowers (Denver).

Opening for DJ Nina Flowers is DJ Benson Wilder (Dallas), no stranger to Purple Foundation. Currently a resident DJ at the Dallas Eagle, DJ Benson Wilder is known for his eclectic, energetic sound that blends the worlds of circuit, club and house music.

DJ Nina Flowers released his first dance single “Loca” in December 2009, which quickly reached #15 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play. Since then, Flowers has followed his first successful venture into the dance music industry with releasing several EPs, original tracks and over 20 singles, thrilling crowds with his tribal house anthems.

Come feel our DJ’s beats under S4’s thundering sound system and world-class lasers, to highlight an unforgettable opening event experience. With 24,000 square feet and 15 service wells, there’s plenty of room to dance and never long lines to re-hydrate.

Deep Ellum Art Company

No pool? No problem! Join us for a day of fun in the sun as we turn the biggest backyard in Deep Ellum into the hottest no pool pool party in Dallas! We are going to RISE to the occasion to the beats of DJ NANDO (NYC)!

NANDO grew up in Puerto Rico surrounded by music and the unmistakable percussive sounds of the Caribbean. His first steps in the dj industry began in 2004 in Washington DC which eventually led to a residency in his native San Juan. He exploded onto the scene in NYC in 2012 and since then has only developed his unique blend of progressive, tribal & latin infused sets (with a splash of throwbacks & powerful vocals) to make sure he delivers nothing short of a sonic journey leaving you craving more.

Deep Ellum Art Company is a creative space that includes an indoor and outdoor art gallery, a 60 ft. bar and roughly 15,000 square feet of indoor and treed outdoor space perfect for dancing with your friends under the big blue Texas sky.

Saturday’s signature Purple Party has become legendary, bringing the hottest talent to Dallas’ South Side Ballroom. We’re in the big boys’ and girls’ room again this year, where DJ Deanne and Bent Collective will fill the room with their Miami vibes.

After nearly two decades of pleasing enthusiastic clubbers, Deanne is more passionate than ever about bringing the party to life and her music to the masses. Tribal, Tech, House, and Progressive House beats and rhythms are combined to take her listeners on a unique journey that is marked with emotion, sensuality, undeniable energy, and a palpable “dance floor drama”.

Bent Collective is comprised of two of Europe’s biggest talents, Danny Verde (Italy) and Steven Redant (Barcelona). In between the solo and duo globetrotting DJ gigs, Bent Collective have released official remixes for artists like Avicii, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Nick Jonas, reaching the number 1 Billboard Dance charts for 4 times in just a couple of years. Bent Collective also produced its own releases as “Get Up, Stand up” & the global dance floor anthem “Uninvited”.

Now working intensely from the new headquarters in Miami, you can expect a lot of new material and very interesting gigs…because when these two self-described queens get together the energy is through the roof!
