Setting the summer off in fine style Baila Con Dios returns to the Lockside Lounge for some of the freshest tropical & carnival party beats, rhythms from Latin America to the Caribbean and Africa with a contemporary urban and electronic twist.

This is a big one as we welcome three international names from the global tropical scene. British producer / DJ Richard Blair - one of the originators of the new Colombian electro-tropical sound and founder of the hugely influential group Sidestepper brings some warm organic tropical sounds from Colombia, Haiti, Trinidad, Cuba, Nigeria, South Africa. Also on the bill up and coming Dublin based French - Morrocan producer iZem brings his soulful global dance-floor sounds straight from the Groovalizacion kitchen, fresh from recent remixes and edits on GAMM, Soundway Records and Mais Um Discos. Lili Prohman joins the party direct from Brasil - she is one of the hottest new party starters in Rio with her Disritmia events hosting crowds of thousands on Copacabana beach. And warming things up in her inimitable tropical wildstyle and luscious grooves Molly Amiss from Glastonbury's HMS Sweet Charity crew will get the party started.?
