Lumo Summer All-Dayer Party
You love dancing and all you need this weekend to forget about the world is some good music to dance all day and night long? Well, I have a suggestion for you, Lumo is having the tenth edition of their all-day summer party.
The Yacht-and Summer-themed dancing party will start at 2pm at a “Secret Outdoor Location” by the water, somewhere near city centre, with Lumo DJs, DJ Sally Cinnamon, Arveene & Misk and PHARE.
From 8pm you will have the option to keep good vibes going with Mix & Fairbanks in Tengu’s smoking area. There, you will have access to a food menu, which means you can feed your body and then get ready to keep feeding your soul with music and fun for the rest of the night.

Zumba Blowout Party Dublin
It looks like dancing Zumba is the thing of the moment! I particularly think that the combination of workout with dance is just perfect. If you, like me, are curious about the dance and would like to give it a try, maybe you should attend the Zumba Blowout Party this Friday. The idea of the event is to get instructors together to finish the summer classes with a big party.
Friday (29.07) – from 8:00 pm
