Club Exotique - The Official Party of the Cuba Street Carnival

From the people who brought you Plush Bomb and Three Piece Suit comes another expectation shattering party atmosphere to celebrate the Cuba Street vibe. Due to Derrick May's recent arrival to our line-up, the date has changed from the previously advertised Friday 22nd.

Club Exotique celebrates both the Cuba Street Carnival and the evolution of clubbing in Wellington and New Zealand. Featuring seminal New Zealand live artists Epsilon Blue and Ebb, DJs who have longtime rocked our dance floors Cian, Cuff, The Roots Foundation and Submariner and of course our international headliner Derrick May.

DERRICK MAY: THE INNOVATOR. Single-handedly creating the prototype of "Superstar DJ" long before such a term even existed, it was (and is) May that works as Detroit's global ambassador, enrapturing audiences worldwide with his legendary DJ sets. Echoes of Ken Collier, Ron Hardy, Larry Levan and the Electrifyin' Mojo reverberate through sound systems from Chicago to Brussels to Johannesburg when he takes to the decks. This is the sound that galvanized a worldwide generation of minds, minds that listened and learned the secret of Techno: How to create your own future.

The Cuba Street Carnival is New Zealand's largest, most spectacular free street festival, taking over inner city Wellington on the last weekend of February each year. The Cuba Street Carnival is a unique event in a unique location. Cuba Street is the soul of Wellington. It is the pulse of Wellington's most innovative and charismatic retail, residential and entertainment district. No other event in New Zealand brings together such a vibrant global mix of music and dance in a weekend of celebration.

Club Exotique is a reason and a chance to extend the Cuba Street Carnival till the early hours, a chance to free your inhibitions, dress up and get down in true carnival style. Help make Club Exotique a synergised dance floor experience. Enjoy an evening of visual and aural orgies; be astounded by extravagant environment the Dental Records crew provides for just that purpose.
