A great way to whet your appetite for the positive disco explosion coming next weekend at Blisspop Disco Fest!

This weekend also brings the annual H Street Festival, and once again our friends at the Beatbox DC crew have curated a fantastic line up for their art car, which will be stationed at 600 H St NE. Said line up includes DJ Mad Science, Wess the DJ, Abco, DJ Kochi, Sam “The Man” Burns, Doug Smith of 95 North fame and the legendary DJ Hightower. A truly fantastic line up for what promised to be a amazing afternoon of music, and, best of all, it’s FREE.
