UPDATE: Organizers have moved the date of the anniversary celebration to March 4th
As is guaranteed when the sun starts shining in Buenos Aires, your Facebook timeline will have no doubt been inundated with copious amounts of invites to unspecified terraces and rooftop parties across the city. More often than not, though, these can end up with you being crammed onto a stranger’s balcony with just a set of bluetooth speakers to dance to.
So, if it’s a proper terrace party you’re after – then look no further.
Taking place at the riverside Terrazas del Este by renowned clubs Bayside and The Bow, PM Open Air has established itself as a BA summer staple since launching five years ago, and this Saturday, they’re presenting their fifth anniversary edition.
With over 30 events under their belt, PM prides itself on big-scale production (not just confetti-cannons and face-paint), whilst regularly bringing in some of the biggest names in house and techno, such as Traumer, tINI and Nick Curley to name but a few. Added to that, they’re big purveyors of pushing local talent, so expect to see Argentine DJs Matias Sundblad and Mariano Trocca on their listings.
The late afternoon start time means you can enjoy the last of the sun while dancing under the palms and planes overhead (the club sits by the Aeroparque) from 4pm onwards, and the 11pm finish means you can either call it a night there, or, crack on elsewhere. The area also boasts food stands (the Belgian fries from Pommes de Terre are a particular staff favorite) and table tennis tables, so if you’re looking to take it easy or get an early afternoon snack in or sweat on, you’ll be in luck.
As always, it’ll likely be a busy afternoon and so probably best to get your tickets in advance. However, there are usually a limited amount of tickets, priced AR $250 and above, on the door. Plus, tickets for last week’s cancelled event will still be valid this time out.
Here’s a taste of what you can expect:
