So, what makes a party great? Good music? A no-brainer. Plenty of tasty beverages? Yeah, for sure. All your friends being there? Definitely. Sounds like every party you’ve likely been too lately yeah? Well, this party that I attended last weekend had all those things with one key difference… it was on a luxury yacht, in the False Creek harbour, at sunset.
Seriously. All parties should be on boats.
Starting the adventure by taking a ferry across False Creek, in the middle of downtown Vancouver, over to the historic Granville Island, we found our vessel, for the evening, ready to go! ZillaLive, the company who organized this event, it’s Boatzilla Summer Solstice Party, spared no expense when it came to décor or the accommodations. The party was prepped, and ready!
Our cruise took us out and around the harbour, gorgeous sights and majestic landscapes of the PNW surrounding us amidst a picturesque sunset. The boys on deck played the most incredible array of dubstep, bass house, trap, and even some hardstyle!
HUGE shout outs to Kermode for the best set of the evening! The man fused together some of the best of today’s house music, and even had a throwback from his earlier production days thrown into the mix.
Honestly, I really think that more parties should be on boats. (Though, because I don’t drink, I had a lot easier of a time dancing, than most!)
