DESPERADOS WELCOMES PARTY IDEAS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

  • Desperados has thrown the world’s largest crowdsourced party, bringing to life consumers’ epic party ideas, like an eight-armed bartender so no time was wasted queuing for drinks
  • After finding that 74% of people believe partying unites people, Desperados partnered with Elrow and Skream to create the most welcoming house party
  • 3,000 guests walked over a giant welcome mat made of unwelcoming newspaper clippings, allowing them to leave the noise of the outside world at the door as they entered the party

UK, 9th SEPTEMBER 2019 Desperados reached new levels of wild experimentation by welcoming partygoers and all their epic party ideas under one roof, to create the world’s largest crowdsourced party. Partnering with party legends Elrow and UK dance music pioneer, Skream, Desperados transformed Magazine, one of London’s newest venues, into the most welcoming house party and turned people’s wild party ideas into a reality.

Skream said, “Dancefloors are the most welcoming places on earth. They bring people together in a space where everyone can unplug and let go. So, my idea was to take this up a notch, to throw the most epic house party where everyone and their ideas are welcome.”

In pursuit to be the most welcoming house party, Desperados conducted research to uncover people’s perceptions towards party culture and common annoyances on the dancefloor – all to create an epic night out shaped by partygoers themselves (Markettiers, 2019)*:

  • This idea was imagined by Rob Zwart of the Netherlands. 
  • Georgina Steele from the UK dreamt up the idea and will be elevated as the Human Mirrorball herself on the dancefloor 12 metres above the crowd.
  • n response, Desperados specially designed a robotic hands-free Desperados arm, dreamt up by Kevin Odirile Setlhare from South Africa.

Across 2019, Desperados challenged consumers to enter their epic party ideas through social media using #WeAreTheParty, bringing the most epic ones to life. Some of the other ideas present at the Epic House Party included:

  • – grandmas, like Grime Gran – because Risky Roadz from the UK, wanted all guests to be greeted with smiles to get the party started.
  • through custom built haptic jackets, dreamt up by Hermon and Heroda, from Eritrea and Ethiopia.
