It’s summer time and the weather is fine in Detroit. What better way to celebrate the best time of year than a night full of dancefloor debauchery at one of Detroit’s’ finest dance vessels? Cue Future Fest. Snowed in Summer was the party so nice, we’re doing it twice.
We’ll be paying our respects to this glorious season by bringing the heat to the dancefloor at El Club once again and giving you a reason to dance all night to some of the finest tunes being pumped out of our beautiful city today. If you were there in February, you know things got hot. We’re not missing a beat this time either; instead we’ll be turning things up a notch and setting the vibe right for you to experience the finest quintessential Detroit dance party.
