ALREADY the first quarter is ending – although New Year’s Eve feels like yesterday. Keep that momentum going by partying on with our list of soirees in March 2019.

1. Zouk : DJ Wuki
8th March, Friday
We know — Friday took forever to come, so come celebrate the start of the weekends with a bang.
Coming to town is LA-based DJ and producer Kris Barman, also known as his alias Wuki. Best known for his eclectic styles in music festivals and especially the track “dadadada”, Wuki has an impressive portfolio, one that includes household names like Spinnin’ and Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak. Surely you can look forward to a party delivering the sickest beats to your ears.
