Meet old friends and new while exploring the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere. The music and jaw dropping décor are sure to dazzle!

For 2023, Hollywood superstar DJ Dawna Montell (Los Angeles) will headline the event with support from circuit icon DJ David Knapp (Atlanta) and the return of our Deep South secret spot featuring DJ Brian Rojas (Atlanta).

Attendees have the option to select General Admission tickets which includes 2 drink tickets valid for a mixed drink, beer, wine or soft drink. For guests wanting to take their experience to the next level, consider the upgraded Lounge Admission, which is a private, upscale lounge with scenic views looking over the event and includes a premium 3-hour open bar and light bites.
