There might not be as much sand as you’d find at the real deal and no huge burning effigy, but Blue Marlin still hopes to replicate some of that Burning Man spirit at its Halloween party.

The Burning Beach party invites clubbers to ‘land on another planet where creativity has no limit’ and urges them to dress up in tribal or psychedelic outfits and bring their spiritual energy to the party. Hmm, not so sure about that. But we are sure that the headliners – Dennis Ferrer and Miss Kitten – will burn the dancefloor.

New York-born Dennis Ferrer’s contribution to house music is immense. His take on combining the elements of techno, house, soul and gospel have seen him working with the best labels and artists in the game. He’s been responsible for classics like Sandcastles and Son of Raw, while always staying relevant to the genre. He brought out one of his biggest tracks, Hey Hey, in 2010, and it was a worldwide smash.


Talking about his career, Dennis, who has just played at Amsterdam Dance Event, said, “I don’t make music to look back, I just like making them [records]. I don’t want to be that guy that gets one hit and the rest of his records are garbage. I want to be the guy that leaves a really bad**s collection.”

Miss Kittin embarked on her DJ career in 1994, high up in the French Alps. Since then, she’s travelled around the world playing her blend of tech-house and electro, and has released ten albums. She’s worked with artists from Felix da Housecat to Primal Scream, and her single Rippin’ Kittin went to No.1 in the UK Dance Chart.

Local DJs Frederick Stone, Jean B and Jixo & Danz provide able support.
