The stage stands 7metres tall and has its own fountain coming out of it. Surrounding the dance, to enhance the whole party experience are columns that shoot out fire. The whole sound and lighting sytems are apart from the ordinary and hence it isn’t surprising when around three thousand odd revelers dance all night long under the starry sky to the beats of their favorite DJ more often than usual at this surreal venue.
