DIM MAK TUESDAYS, long heralded as LA’s best weekly party, is making a triumphant return this winter, at 1720. This year’s one night special event pays homage to the blog house era and will bring together the community that helped shape dance music - thrown in association with Indie Sleaze, Last Gang, and The Cobrasnake as host / photographer.

With over 9+ years since the last party at Cinespace, Dim Mak has grown into a global brand in events, music, and fashion. In its heyday, DIM MAK TUESDAYS was at the core of the blog house genre and community with resident DJ’s Steve Aoki, Them Jeans, and Dan Oh, alongside photographer The Cobrasnake documenting the night's activities. The party also fostered a close knit dance music scene in Los Angeles, and helped launch artist careers including Diplo, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Anna Lunoe, Dillon Francis, Treasure Fingers, Felix Cartal, Crookers, DJ AM, Justice, Uffie, Etienne De Crecy, MSTRKRFT, and The Bloody Beetroots among others. Celebrities also frequented the parties, including appearances from Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Paris Hilton, Common, and Will.i.Am.

Join us on December 13th at 1720 for special guest sets, performances, and a taste of the early 2000’s!

Rowdy nostalgia aside, Dim Mak is also partnering with LA Mission to run a sweater donation initiative at the event, in an effort to keep the streets of LA warm during the winter months. Guests are encouraged to bring any old sweaters, coats, or blankets and drop it in the donation bins at the show! This winter, the nights in Los Angeles will dip to as low as 35 – 40 degrees, so donations are greatly appreciated.
