Recap | VIVA @ Guvernment feat. Nicky Romero & Knife Party

Saturday, Nov 24th – Ink Events and The Guvernment played host to their VIVA all access party. I tagged along with Dinosaurus Rex’s very own, Chris, to check out the hyped event.

VIVA @ Guvernment - Nicky Romero and Knife Party

Bringing in talent from around the world, the all night dance party included everything from House, Trance, and Dubstep. I’m sure the trance family had a field day with ATB spinning in the main Guvernment room, but I went to stay mainly in the largest room – Kool Haus for Knife Party and Nicky Romero. Arriving just after midnight, the entry line was your typical length, but kudos for them allowing people to choose the proper door gaining you entry into the room you preferred most. Downfall though to the coat check being full prior to 1am.

The event seemed to go on without a hitch. The lighting display in Kool Haus was big and bold. Having a space-age type stage, the DJs spun on a booth that included 2 giant screens as the base, an LED screen behind them, and 2 large floating ones within the crowd. Our pictures turned out nothing short of impressive!

Both Knife Party and Romero delivered equally banging sets. I felt the bass heavy vibe of Knife Party seemed to win the crowd over a bit more, but the anticipation of Nicky going onstage seemed to be greater. I did venture into Chroma for a bit to check out the dub sounds of Flinch. Nice room and vibe, but mainly because there was space to move around. After a half hour I made my way back into Kool Haus to catch the finale of Nicky’s set, strategically leaving 5 mins before the end to save myself some headaches in the ever growing coat check line. Overall – pretty poppin’ night.
