It is no longer a seceret that Ugandans and in particular Kampalans love to party and party hard. That partly explains the birth of new happening and hangout joints everyday and all over the place. These also come with new and fresh ideas like theme nights that cater for different audiences and age groups.
It is on this basis that the Square which is also a new happening place on 3rd street industrial area hosted a new theme night dubbed ‘Lights Met Sound’ last Friday. The party organised by Aeon in conjunction with Smirnoff was to celebrate local DJs talent and enjoy is coined around House and electronic Music which are lately becoming a popular genres in the city.
Smirnoff kicked off the party with free taste of their new ‘smoke’ cocktail which revellers enjoyed as they mixed and mingled. Other exotic cocktails were also on sale as the party picked momentum in the venue decorated to match the theme with neon lights, some vegetation in form of natural plants and flowers and flicker disco lights.
As the night climaxed the revellers took to the dance floor with some of the county’s best Electronic and House music DJs doing the mixing in sessions and in taking turns on the turntables. The likes of DJ AO Walker, Aleczandah, Hola Jefe, Cheek-O Dread, RPM x BK, Darkmeme x Ejuku, The Sound Engine, Slikback among others showcased their skills on the decks as party animals sipped exotic Smirnoff cocktails and had a great time on the floor.
