Coachella Weekend Pool Parties
Also in Bookmarks, Gay Coachella: An Ultimate Guide to 2017. "This year will be, without a doubt, one of the most insane Coachella seasons we’ve seen in recent years. Last year’s Indio City Council approval of an increase in 62,000 tickets will make it the most attended year ever, capping at 125,000 people. More importantly, this year’s lineup is absolutely crazy. With the Queen of Pop headlining, and a multitude of diverse smaller sets that appeal to the gays (Banks, Lorde, SNBRN), the Indio Polo Club grounds will be swarming with intensity as people from all over scramble to catch their favorite sets."

From the national and international desk, Binomio, merges his passion for dance music with the restlessness of the public, creating a perfect harmony between the desk and the dance floor. His energetic sets are composed of force full rhythms but with loads of groove, voices and suggestive melodies. Binomio masters to convert those elements into a perfect explosion for the dance floor.
The huge success of his remix of American Idol contestant Blake Lewis’ “Heartbreak on Vinyl,” along with its standout production quality, led Tommy Boy Records in New York to sign him as an exclusive in-house producer in 2007. That same recording attracted the attention of George Dellinger, the force behind Madtizzy Productions, who brought Verde into the agency’s roster of A-list DJs." Time to Get Your White Party On!
