That’s right. It’s Frosh Week and the students are populating our cities once again. Matteo DiMarr will be opening three shows next week for Swede sensation Steve Angello, with a Calvin Harris finale. DiMarr starts the week at McMaster University on Tuesday September 4th, 7:30PM at Faculty Hollow, Hamilton, ON, followed by Brock University, Wednesday September 5th, 7:00PM at Weather Station Field, St. Catharines, ON. He performs Saturday, September 8th at the massive New Gas City in Montreal, QC. DiMarr ends the Frosh Week madness at “Block Party” with Calvin Harris, Sunday September 9th, 6:00PM at 301 York Street in London, ON.
The purpose of Frosh Week has always been known to university & college students as an “orientation week” full of activities to welcome new students. Originally offered to help students organize their classes, to meet other new students, and to become familiar with the campus, the Electronic Dance Music scene has changed the dynamics of Frosh Week. Now, Frosh Week is all about which DJ is coming to campus.
DiMarr claims, “It is truly the era of the DJ. Years ago we would have been talking about which bands are coming to town. It is an exciting time bringing our music to the masses.”
Last year, “Block Party” brought students of London, ON, DJ and producer Avicii, who is ranked No.6 on the Top 100 DJ list by DJ Magazine in 2011. The “Tent Party” fad started in 2010 when First Aisle Entertainment, Premier Life, Uniq Lifestyle & London Music Hall put on the first production for Western University’s Homecoming weekend, with headliner Deadmau5. Western’s 2011 Homecoming Tent Party was an even larger production making it a two day event, bringing world renowned DJs Dirty South and Steve Angello and guests.
