Tricks and treats are in store when Pink returns to its roots next week with another mega-bash. Raves at Pink's Chai Wan venue may have been put on hold recently, but its owners, AEC Limited, are banking on the fact that the brand name has not lost its lustre. Almost a year after its April Fool's Day bash at H?TEC in Kowloon Bay attracted 12,000 party-goers, Pink 0303 is hoping to repeat the success on March 3.
As with the two previous big Pink parties, there's more to look out for than just the DJ line-up. This time events include XSkate setting up an an indoor skate park for skateboarding, in-line skating and BMX stunts. Anyone can join in. And for those with younger minds and hearts there's an 'incredible balloon room' with thousands of brightly coloured helium balloons floating around. So much for all the hot air. What about the DJs?
K-Klass duo Paul and Russ have been tearing up dancefloors across the UK and Europe for six years after switching from the production studio to playing live behind decks. The fact they play uplifting house makes them an unusual choice for mega-parties in Hong Kong, which usually stick to techno, trance and progressive house DJs.
Those harder beats will probably come courtesy of Hungarian Corven Dalek, dubbed the 'Decks Exterminator' after the robots who were Dr Who's dreaded foes. Dalek holds the world record for DJing on 10 decks at the same time, a feat he achieved at Berlin club Casino last year. The song created from this manic performance, Gimme Two Fingers, appears on Pete Tong's Mixmag CD released last September. At H?TEC, Dalek will revert to the more traditional two-decks. So any tricks will be left to those in the skate park.
