TEEN NIGHT LINE-UP

DJ Kuti

Lounge set 6-7:30, Dance Party 8:30-9
Kuti is a DJ, producer, and graphic designer from New Orleans. To Kuti, music is communal, and the people, connections, and visuals fuel the groove while she, as the curator, drives the ship. She is also 1/2 of the production duo, Khromethesia. Influenced by OG dance music, Afrodiasporic rhythms and soul, take a stroll with her through all-time funk faves, classic boogie, and global ear candy.

Moon Garden

Offering milk & fruit tea for purchase. Milk tea giveaways for the first 100 attendees!
Moon Garden specializes in boba and artisan drinks using only the freshest ingredients. The restaurant shops locally to ensure freshness and bold flavor. Their methods limit drinks from becoming watered down for maximum enjoyment.
