Legendary Concert Promoter Announces Presidential Campaign

Forget Kanye. Legendary EDM promoter Disco Donnie announced that he will be running for President of the United States at a press conference in Las Vegas. Ignoring bipartisanship, Disco Donnie also announced the formation of the new Party Party and will hit the campaign trail September 5 & 6 at Sun City Music Festival in El Paso, Texas.

Wearing a gold and zebra striped jumpsuit, Disco Donnie made a statement outlining his platform as president hopeful,

My fellow party constituents. We are a people whose heart beats, with beats. We are a people, founded under the belief that all genres are created equal. That they are endowed by their listeners with certain unalienable rights at festivals, club events, and raves. However, listeners no longer feel listened to.

I fear we have lost sight of our original goal. We hardly see multi-genre shows and festivals anymore. We hardly see new artists on announced lineups or hear the names of the old school when some Ravers discuss which DJs are “killing it.” I stay up at night worrying about whether future kids will learn the names of Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, and Juan Atkins in their music plurriculum at school.

The Party Party fights for those who are in rave turmoil. Those who have lost their job because they showed up late after experiencing a layover while traveling back from TomorrowWorld. Those who eat nothing but ramen noodles while saving up to go to WMC--ahem, sorry, "Miami Music Week."

Hearing about these situations breaks my heart - I look around me and I see party people are looking for a change in the status quo. What our scene needs now is a great leader. Someone who can take the party and make it truly great again. A leader who understands partying is a job and that you shouldn't be fired from it.

That’s why I’ve decided to announce that I am running as the Party Party President of the United States."
