Juhu is all set to be overrun with party-goers next weekend. The suburb will see revelers hop and skip around the locality to catch 19 artists who are part of the MTV Bloc Party on January 18th and 19th.

One of the youngest top DJs in the EDM scene, Swedish DJ Alesso will headline the two-day event which also features Turkish progressive house DJ Deniz Koyu, New Zealand glitch hop artist Opiuo and British house producer Simon Dunmore, among 15 other EDM artists.

The idea of one ticket to gain entry into multiple parties means MTV Bloc Party packs in over 20 hours of music across four venues, with the main event taking place at Juhu Hotel, which was previously every Mumbai metalhead’s haunt with the metal mecca Razzberry Rhinoceros. After things wrap up at 10pm, the night bloc parties begin across three venues in the locality ”“ Beachcomber,  Rock Bottom and another club yet to be announced. The hassle of traveling across venues is all taken care of with hop-on-hop-off Bloc Party buses available.

Day two of the event will feature a more relaxed start, with food, music and a beer arena. Things get kicked into a different gear with a sundown party on  Saturday, which starts at 5pm.
