DJX will kick off its After Dark series with an opening-night party (Aug. 8) that will also serve as the closing event for a new Atlantic City music festival, Lucy The Elephant, a four-day/night event that will present some of the globe’s top DJs, including renowned talents like Tiësto, DJ Snake and more. (Full details here.)
DJX’s opening-night attraction, set to play the HQ2 Nightclub at the Ocean Casino Resort, will be Markus Schulz, the only jock voted “America’s Best DJ” three times (2012, 2014, and 2018). Known for his euphoric trance sets and hard-hitting tracks, the Miami-based Schulz has worked his way up the DJ ladder from spinning mobiles and clubs in Boston and Phoenix to playing some of the world’s most prestigious clubs and festivals. He’s also successfully run his label, Coldharbour Recordings, since 2013. Schulz will also participate in DJX events throughout the week – stay tuned for further details.
All DJX badgeholders 21 years of age and over will be admitted FREE to the Aug. 8 event at HQ2, which will begin at 9 p.m. Proof of age required. Dress code.
