Summer is here: Pool party series to kick off in Macau

Posted: 04/28/2011 10:17 am

The PRD went from cold and rainy to hot and humid almost overnight, which means its time to shed layers of clothing and embrace the sunshine: summer is finally here.

We will certainly keep you up-to-date with all of the parties going on this summer. Longtime PRD residents will know of the fantastic beaches in Shenzhen and Zhuhai, which will no doubt be filled with various sultry events in the coming months. For the newbies, there have been some epic moments in summers’ past and you won’t want to miss them this year.

First up is a special pool party series being kicked off in Macau, at the relatively-new City of Dreams project. The first day in the SPLASH Pool Party Summer Series is on Saturday May 21, featuring “an adrenalin pumping, poolside extravaganza”. Sounds pretty good, right? It’s also organized by MTV.

Here are the details (courtesy of Life of Guangzhou):

MTV Asia veteran, VJ Andy, VJ Utt and VJ Holly, recent winner of MTV’s VJ hunt competition held last year, will host the first of the spectacular party series on Saturday May 21, 2011. This premier party experience in Macau combines Hard Rock Hotel’s Pool and Club CUBIC, City of Dreams’ new 30,000-square-foot live entertainment venue to create the ultimate entertainment hotspot for guests.

The first of the series will feature an approximately 30-minute special live performance, namely, ’24 Herbs,’ a bona fide hip-hop band in Asia, followed by DJ Judge Jules presiding over the Hard Rock Hotel’s SPLASH Pool Party event and dance music specialist Eddie Halliwell headlining in Club CUBIC.

The festivities will also be broadcast later on MTV Asia. If you’re interested in checking it out, here is the ticket info:
