If you’ve no idea what I’m talking about, allow me to explain 🙂 DC House Grooves, in partnership with Blisspop, has a pair of tickets to ALL FIVE EVENTS at Blisspop Disco Fest, worth over $100, to give away to one lucky winner. That’s right! One lucky winner who fills out and submits this form will get a pair of FREE tickets to all five events at Blisspop Disco Fest between Friday September 27 and Sunday September 29.
If you’re not sure what Blisspop Disco Fest is all about, then just take a look at this lineup:
That’s me, Andy Grant, warming up the floor for Sam Burns, The Blackbyrds, Jellybean Benitez, Cerrone, DJ Boring and Honey Soundsystem on the Saturday night, so mark it in you calendar and make a note to get to U Street Music Hall bright and early!
The winner will be selected at random at 7pm on Wednesday September 25, and we’ll announce the results right here in DC House Grooves Top Picks next week. Please make sure you enter your real full name and email address. You will need to show your ID on entry to receive your prize. One entry per person, please.

For a delicious preview of Blisspop Disco Fest, I recommend heading to U Street Music Hall on Friday night for the Blisspop Disco Fest Preview Party, featuring disco all night from Will Eastman, Ken Lazee and Nick Garcia going B2B2B. A great way to whet your appetite for the positive disco explosion coming next weekend at Blisspop Disco Fest!

Never mind next weekend, there’s a ridiculous amount of quality happening in Washington DC this weekend! On Friday, heading in to Saturday is DC24, an epic 24 hour event showcasing a selection of DC’s finest local talent. See the flyer below for the full line up, every one of them local to DC. 24 hour passes are selling fast, so if you want to guarantee your spot on the dance floor, grab yours now. Not to be missed!
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.
Flash has an incredible line up this weekend, including Alan Fitzpatrick on Thursday, Octo Octa and Eris Drew and Lauren Lo Sung on Friday, Sassmouth & Tinonton Duvante on Saturday and Eli & Fur on Sunday, and at ESL, I highly recommend Playlist with Jubilee & Ramirez on Thursday, then Sam “The Man” Burns and Sundays Rooftop with Detroit’s finest Keith Worthy on Sunday.
Here’s the full list of DC House Grooves Top Picks for the weekend. I’ve included galleries for Flash and Eighteenth Street Lounge‘s line ups, plus flyers for all the best underground house and techno events in and around Washington DC, Thursday through Sunday. Have an amazing weekend, and I hope to see you at Blisspop Disco Fest next weekend!
