Three rooms of dynamic and rich musical environment's featuring these talented artists: BAD BOY BILL : CHICAGO, ILSo goes one of the legendary chants of Chicago house icon Bad Boy Bill, who began name checking when he first started out on the radio to distinguish himself from the other DJs on the airwaves. Bill has come a long way from his days as a radio mix show DJ. On his belt hang the titles of DJ, Artist, Producer, Songwriter, and Entrepreneur. Not to mention three-time DMC FINALIST, 1998 Winter Music Conference MIXSHOW DJ OF THE YEAR, 1999 URB Magazine 2nd Place DJ OF THE YEAR, and this year's #1 FAVORITE DJ according to BPM Magazine. DJ MAGIC MIKE : ORLANDO, FLA chart topper since 1988, DJ Magic Mike is far from a new comer, but one who has always managed to remain a bit more underground. The Orlando Florida native noted as the Best Platinum Artist You Never heard Of in Vibe Magazine. Beginning in 1989, DJ Magic Mike released DJ MAGIC MIKE and THE ROYAL POSSE. The album sold over a million copies, skyrocketing to Platinum status. In all, Mike has sold in excess of 5 million records worldwide with 1 Platinum and 6 Gold LPs to his credit. AK 1200 : Planet of the Drums / Orlando, FLAmerica's original jungle/drum n bass don has been pushing the sound since the music's initial incarnation as hardcore breakbeat. As one of the U.S.'s original proponents of breakbeat music, AK started DJing in 1989. Slowly over the later half of the 90's, AK1200 again enhanced his sound and style, giving his fans a smooth transition to the rawest, most aggressive sounds of the time. More recently, AK and longtime colleagues Dieselboy and Dara came to realize that they on their own had become the top three dub DJ's in the US, so what would happen if they joined forces? The answer of course, was world domination, and the Planet of the Drums (POTD) crew was born Other National and Regional Acts include: AK 1200 / Vibesquad / DJ C-Vaughn / Somasphere / Johnny C / Floozies / G.E.M. / FSTZ / J Fortune / Norrit / Clandestine / VJ Nexus / V.J.Ones TICKET INFORMATION:DOORS OPEN AT 8:00 PM$20 LIMITED TICKETS / $25 GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS$60 VIP TICKETS (21 AND OVER ONLY) SEPARATE AND EARLY ENTRANCE FOR VIP TICKET HOLDERS ONLY AS WELL AS OTHER AMENITIES
