First time with us? Watch this recap from our NYE last year:
After consistently rocking Jai Ho! Dance Party in 6 cities across the west coast, New Orleans & Denver in 2018, DJ Prashant brings the magic home to Portland to dance you into 2019.
Bollywood Dreams Entertainment invites you to:
༺ NEW YEAR’S EVE MASQUERADE ༻
Bollywood, Bhangra & World Music Dance Party
Two separate dance floors, 5 top class DJs, multiple mesmerizing performers under 1 roof!
Underneath the mask, we are all one – just star stuff waiting for our time to shine. We believe music & dance transcend language, nationality, skin color & other labels. As the tense 2018 comes to a close, we invite you to take your mask off & connect with authenticity on the dance floor to celebrate our unity in diversity.
In 2017, we launched “Dance United“, a global bass dance party featuring music & DJs from around the world. For our NYE Masquerade, we are taking over both Hawthorne Lounge & Theater, two dance floors under one roof alongside some of West Coast’s finest DJs & performers. The lounge will feature world music while the theater will reverberate with Bollywood-Bhangra tunes.
So whether you like Bollywood, Bhangra, EDM, Latin or Global Bass music there is something for everyone to dance you into 2010 at our most comprehensive NYE offering yet.
To add to the mystique of the night, your tickets will include a fancy mask & other party favors.
