What: Decks in the Park Summer Kick-Off
Where: Klyde Warren Park
The 411: More than 6,000 fans showed up to picnic and dance the night away as top Dallas DJs spun tunes, celebrating the start of this year's Decks in the Park.
The free music festival series regularly draws thousands of people to Klyde Warren Park during the summer and fall months, along with a variety of pop-up events at select venues around town.
With the lights of downtown Dallas as the backdrop, DJs Carlyle, Titan, Danny West, Souljah, Sno White, Jonathan Will, Jay Clipp, and Decks co-founder Jeff Mitchell performed for an all-ages crowd. Afterward, those 21-and-up moved the party to Candleroom, where they kept dancing through the night.
Those at the kick-off party got a taste of the diverse musical talent that has made Decks In the Park grow so rapidly since its 2013 inception. Music genres span electronic, house, drum and base, soul, indie dance, funk, hip hop, pop, and even classics on vinyl, giving everyone a taste of what they love.
Title sponsor Visit Dallas and Decks co-founders Mitchell, Marty Martinez, Julio Rivera, Ryan Kimura, and Events Moderne produce each event from start to finish. Keep an eye out for a special spooky Halloween version of Decks In the Park on October 31, which promises to be a wicked celebration.
