Dress to the nines and flock to your living rooms; DIRTYBIRD has joined forces with Chicago house stalwart Gene Farris and his Farris Wheel Recordings label crew to throw a Carnival Weekender.
Gene Farris sits comfortably alongside Chicago house icons like Green Velvet or Marshall Jefferson, a DJ who’s been championing the city’s sound for over three decades and a driving force in House music around the world.
DIRTYBIRD and Farris Wheels’ co-curated 60-hour live stream marathon is packed with iconic talent, with true legends like Mark Farina, Mike Dunn, Junior Sanchez, DJ Pierre, and Roger Sanchez joining host label heads Claude VonStroke and Gene Farris as just a fraction of its 60 person-strong billing. The Carnival also noss to house’s new generation with up-and-coming artists like John Summit, J. Worra, and Kevin Knapp backing the hosts’ curatorial chops. Festivities begin on Twitch Friday morning, January 29 and stretch well into February 1, promising a world class dance music experience from the comfort of home. Tune in here
