Electronic music event popular amongst students
THE SANTA CLARA
April 10, 2014
“Are you going to Don’t Bring Sand to the Beach?” was a common question that could be heard throughout Benson Memorial Center, the dorms, in class and off campus during the first week back after spring break.
Don’t Bring Sand to the Beach, an annual event full of dancing, electronic music and colorful attire took place last Saturday night, hosted by Leve1 Events.
Students found various means of getting to the venue, Oasis Night Club, a short drive away from campus into downtown San Jose. For example, freshman Alexander Polatnick used the new transportation service Uber with a group of friends to get to and from the event.
Polatnick thought the Oasis Night Club was a great location for Don’t Bring Sand to the Beach, praising the “neat” lighting set-ups inside the venue and as the backdrop.
Don’t Bring Sand to the Beach is essentially a dance party widely attended by Santa Clara students looking for a fun way to kick off spring quarter and enjoy good music with their friends.
The atmosphere of this highly-anticipated show was one of the most thrilling parts of the electrifying night.
Sophomore Olivia Bormann found the excitement of the evening to be the best part.
“There was such a good, positive energy,” she said. “I loved that the DJs were really interactive with the crowd.”
This year’s headliner was Viceroy, currently one of the biggest names in dance music. Viceroy has performed across the world and has over 5 million Soundcloud plays, making him a unique and exciting artist to see live.
If you didn’t get the chance to check out this fun event last week, not to fear — Don’t Bring Sand to the Beach is an annual dance party that will be back next spring quarter to keep the tradition alive.
