Self-described by its promoters as a "pool party series with a purpose," Mo'Vida is a bit more high-minded than your average poolside rager. Taking place on Saturday, May 24, at the El Dorado, it will offer a family friendly vibe, a laidback atmosphere via its soundtrack of global soul and intelligent dance grooves, and a portion of its proceeds being donated to charities fighting children's cancer. The DJ lineup includes Montreal's Jojo Flores and such locals as World Famous Rani G, Anton Spevacek, Adam Osuna, FlipStylz, and Emgee. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $20 and includes a free drink and raffle ticket.
The enormous outdoor stage alongside the pool at Talking Stick Resort will get plenty of use this weekend, as renowned DJs like The Crystal Method, Bad Boy Bill, and Richard Vission are scheduled to perform during the three days worth of Release Pool Parties from Saturday, May 24, to Monday, May 26. And if it's anything like Wet Electric last month, which saw thousands swimming and celebrating while beats filled the air, you can expect to plenty of eye candy and wild times. A swimwear fashion show featuring designs by Dolcessa Swimwear is scheduled for Saturday, specialty cocktails and drink deals can be had, and access to the lush cabanas and daybeds in available. Gates open at 11 a.m. Ladies get in free, guys pay $10.
