Montréal Pride is proud to roll out the red carpet for the MEGA T-DANCE at Place Émilie-Gamelin, which will be transformed into a massive open-air dance floor! After last year’s monster success, the T-DANCE’s controls will be handed over to famous DJ Charles Poulin (Québec), DJ Mike Cruz (New York) and DJ/Producer Mark Anthony (Montréal). This incredible trio will keep you dancing non-stop until 11 pm!
2 pm — DJ Charles Poulin (Québec)
Charles is mostly active as the top DJ in Québec City with a weekly residency at the Drague for CP Lab, Dagobert, Boudoir, not to mention clubs in Montréal like Parking, Sky, Circus and the renowned Stereo Afterhours! He has been invited to play at many special events like the Jock Ball at Stereo, at BBCM’s RED Party, as well as in private parties such as the première night of Varekai and Corteo for Cirque du Soleil, DJ Paulette’s birthday bash in Paris, the Red Bull Crashed Ice Party in Québec City and recently the Woodstock en Beauce. Charles also imported his sound to Rise in Boston, Living Club in Mexico, the legendary London Club, The End, and to the exciting Paris Club, The Mix. Recently Charles has joined Saul B’s Kickroach Recordings.
2 pm — DJ Mike Cruz (New York)
New York-based DJ/producer Mike Cruz is known internationally for his intoxicating blend of underground, steamy tribal-infused grooves, and rip-roaring vocal anthems. His fans also know to expect the unexpected — that’s the hallmark of a Cruz set: he blends the attitude of the crowd, the trends of the industry, and a keen intuition to concoct a listening experience that is matched only by his next performance. After 15 years of bringing his unique and infectious sound to parties in cities like Barcelona, Prague, Amsterdam, São Paolo, Tel Aviv, Sydney, Hong Kong and Mexico City, Cruz is now a household name in just about every major city in North America. He currently does rotations at Club 57 in New York, Rise in Boston, Tracks in Denver, The End Up in San Francisco, Atlanta’s Heritic and Miami’s Score.
8 pm — DJ Mark Anthony (Montréal)
For over 20 years now, Mark Anthony has been serving up his signature textured house beats, blending shake-it percussion, savvy special effects and a heaping helping of pure love. His spot-on eye for the hottest emerging sounds helped pioneer Montreal’s now world-famous house scene from the outset. True to himself and his vision, Mark has been instrumental in making house music and clubbing a unique experience, an art form, a means of expression. He may be recognized globally as a master of the turntables, but Mark’s career has also included turns as an accomplished music and event producer, always striving to breathe new life into nightlife.
