PAX’s Halloween Treat for Rained Out Voodoo Festivalgoers in Pictures
No amount of Voodoo — be it of the music festival variety or otherwise — could keep Mother Nature happy in New Orleans: Day three of the spooky and spectacular VooDoo Music Experience was cancelled on Sunday, Dia de los Muertos. While this would have typically been an epic drag (and for fans of Third Eye Blind, it surely was), for many festivalgoers the unexpected day of respite just got them more pumped for what the night held: a surprise twist of a bonus DJ set, thanks to premium vaporizer brand, PAX.
With bright white PAX balloons flying high over the festival crowd on the clear, gorgeous New Orleans night on Friday, attendees caught wind of a very special after party on Sunday. English garage duo Gorgon City would take to an undisclosed location after the final day of the fest.
Even though the fairgrounds were off limits Sunday, PAX notified revelers that they would still be celebrating as planned. The secret venue was the gorgeous Republic NOLA. An unassuming exterior revealed soaring ceilings, glittering chandeliers and moody purple lights. Party guests, who were still celebrating Saturday’s holiday in full costumes, were dancing from the first beat.
PAX enlisted local DJ Michael Medina to start the night off, and his blistering house set had the crowd entranced. Medina is a frequent opener when big DJs come to the Big Easy, and he commands the decks with the confidence.
As Gorgon City took the stage, things got even moodier, and as fog machines kept the Halloween vibes going, revelers danced the night away.
The soggy conditions were forgotten and everyone was blazing, thanks to PAX. Get higher here.
