The Circuit Comes to Town

Posted on May 1st, 2009 by .

May 14-18 brings the annual Hot & Dry party, an all-night event that promises to be hot & sweaty.

Celebrate the arrival of summer with 2000 of your shirtless new best friends…

Love it or leave it, “the circuit” has become a mainstream global phenomenon, and Montréal is a much-loved destination on the tour.

May 14-18 brings the beloved annual Hot & Dry party. The event is hosted by the Bad Boys Club de Montréal (BBCM), a volunteer-based non-profit gay organization that gives financial support to groups providing direct care to people living with HIV/AIDS, and to gay & lesbian community groups. To date the BBCM has given out $1,250,000. Hot & Dry is the second-biggest event on the BBCM calendar after the infamous Black & Blue (October 7-13, 2009).

This year’s theme is “Fresh!”, which celebrates the arrival of summer. And after the winters that we get, nobody appreciates the changing of seasons more than a Montréaler.

According to noiZe Magazine, “Those of us who have been to a BBCM event know that they are consistently good, and that Montréal is a great city for partying.”

I won’t argue that.

This year’s talent includes DJ Maüs aka Louise Gauvreau (Montréal), the world renowned DJ/producer Chris Cox (Los Angeles), and DJ Scotty Thompson (New York).

Tickets for the main event are $35.
