People of any color, size, body type, gender, gender expression(s), and sexual orientation are welcome. Bigotry will not be tolerated and will be grounds for ejection from the park.

There will be 3 DJ’s spread around throughout the park. DJ Sean Parks and Dj  AJ Dubbz, both from Chicago.

Plus DJ RNB from Milwaukee!

Official time for the event is 8pm – 12 Midnight. “We encourage people to get there at 7:30 PM; usually Six Flags opens the gates a little early and people tend to mingle in the parking lot with friends before the gates open.” says owner Derrick Sorles.

Marcus Angel – Milwaukee

“Intuitive set that takes you on a creative journey through a variety of eras and genres that’s guaranteed to keep the party entertained and jumping.”

Born and raised in the urban landscapes of Milwaukee, Marcus Angel’s musical influences ranged from 70’s funk, 80’s Top 40, 90’s Hip Hop, House, and Alternative Rock! Immersed in the live music scene as a young man, Marcus Angel understood the hard work, discipline, and showmanship that came with being a high end performer. The transition from live music to a DJ began in his early twenties where he produced club mixes for a variety of venues in the 2000s. Though excelling in that area of music, Marcus took a break and re-entered the scene a handful of years later, but now as a live bar and nightclub DJ.

Since then, Marcus has made noise in dozens of Cities and States in the U.S. Though night clubs and bars are his typical evenings, he has an extensive resume in corporate, and private events performing at a variety of parties hosted by NFL players, Milwaukee Bucks, house name organizations, and has opened for marquee EDM artists.

In Milwaukee, WI, Marcus Angel’s home base, no venue is unfamiliar with his delicate and intuitive sets that blend a variety of musical genres, to form an evening of energy, excitement, and dance that everyone is sure to enjoy! Not only does his music set standards, but his attention to detail, work ethic, and dedications to his residencies is unparalleled.

“I take my job very seriously. I don’t take for granted the opportunities I have to perform in front of an audience, and embrace the responsibility I have to the Club and my dance floor on any given night. I’m blessed and fortunate to be able to express myself using a cornucopias amount of music I have lived though. With that experience I’m able to deliver a set that appropriately fits the vibe and personality of the venue, while being explosively entertaining and unique for the dance floor.”  Give a listen HERE.

MOOSE The DJ has been overactive in the Chicago events scene for 25 years, 7 of which as DJ and promoter at popular club/bar nights D.I.L.F., Otter, Tea in A’ville/Tea in B’Town, Cruisin’ and #NSFW at Sofo Tap, Mary’s Attic, Downtown Bar, Whiskey Thief, Replay, Hydrate and Jackhammer.
