One of Colorado’s most sought after DJs, DJ Brent is taking Denver PrideFest 2012 by storm with two appearances at the largest GLBT event in Colorado and one of the biggest GLBT Pride festivals in the nation. DJ Brent burst onto the Denver music scene last year at SWEET and since then, he’s gone on to book some of the most high-profile gigs in Denver – including PORNSTAR and Black Eye Ball. But Denver PrideFest 2012, June 16-17, marks his biggest and best gig yet, one that attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees over the course of the weekend and will expose him to the largest and most diverse crowd Colorado has to offer.
“I’m very excited to be a part of Denver PrideFest 2012,” says DJ Brent. “It brings the entire community together. Music always has been, and always will be, a big part of Pride and it’s quite meaningful for me to be a part of that.”
On Saturday, June 16, DJ Brent takes the Smirnoff Dance World Stage at 4pm. Dance World is where Denver PrideFesters go when they are ready to party and dance and that’s just how DJ Brent likes it.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing what the crowd has to bring in terms of energy and excitement,” says DJ Brent. “I think people will really be ready to get their groove on at that point and I’m just the guy to give it to them. I’ve been working very hard on my set and I like to think that I have come up with something that really represents the sonic embodiment of a Saturday afternoon at Pride.”
Billed as “The Party of the Year” Climax is The Official PrideFest 2012 After Party and takes place on Sunday, June 17. It is presented by DJ Tatiana and CafeVivid.com, sponsored by MileHighGayGuy.com and held on the rooftop of Club Vinyl on Broadway, perfectly positioned within walking distance of Civic Center Park where PrideFest is held.
“I’m really looking forward to this one,” says DJ Brent. “Everybody who comes to the after-party at Climax is really ready to cap things off and go out with a bang. They’re hyped up because they’ve just come from the festival - or a nap - and they are always more than ready and raring to go again.”
Presented by The GLBT Community Center of Colorado, Denver PrideFest takes place annually in June – LGBT Pride Month as designated by President Obama – in downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park. One of the oldest and largest Pride events in the country, Denver PrideFest provides a $25 million dollar economic impact to the City of Denver, as reported in a 2009 survey conducted by Birchill Enterprises.
