It's Pride weekend in DC!  This year, four of Washington DC’s premiere nightlife producers are partnering together with Capital Pride Alliance on three massive parties.

KINETIC: Pride DC kicks off Friday, June 10th with UNCUT XL.  Grammy-nominated DJ Abel will headline the city’s most risqué circuit event of the year at BLISS nightclub, from 10pm until 4am. “Uncut is returning to DC Pride for the first time in four years so there will be lots of sweating, dancing, and men bumping and sliding into one another on the main floor as well as in the play zone,” says producer Jesus Quispe of La Fantasy events.  

The celebration continues Saturday, June 11 at the weekend’s main event, KINETIC: Pride Galactic Edition.  DJ Joe Pacheco begins the night at 10pm. Then DJ’s Dan Slater and Ben Bakson work to shoot party-goers into the farthest reaches of the stratosphere with an epic back-to-back set at Echostage, voted the #1 club in the world by DJ Magazine.  “This party marks Ben Bakson’s debut in Washington, D.C. and we could not be more excited to have him at the largest main event in the history of Pride DC,” says Zach Nalbone of Takeover Presents.  

 “Our KINETIC: Pride Galactic Edition party will be Echostage’s first-ever gay Saturday night party and will include live performances by RuPaul’s Drag Racestars Shangela and Jorgeous," adds Dougie Meyer of Dougie Meyer Presents.

KINETIC: Pride DC wraps on Sunday June 12th with DC Pride's official closing party, discoVERS, taking place at SAX in Downtown DC.  Disco-diva Alexis Tucci will spin an open-to-close set from 10pm to 3am with Disco, Nu-Disco, and Disco House music all night long. Special performances throughout the night will be seamlessly integrated into her high-energy disco set.

"This will be a Pride weekend like no other!" promises JMar Productions’ Jimmy Martin, the fourth producer of the newly formed Kinetic team.

General admission and VIP tickets for KINETIC: Pride DC are available now at A portion of the proceeds to be donated to the Capital Pride Alliance.
