    What is a Decentralized Dance Party (DDP)?
    The DDP is a portable, battery-powered Party System.
    It was invented by Tom and Gary, two gentlemen from Vancouver.
    It consists of hundreds of Party people, carrying boomboxes, and a DJ who wears a backpack, containing an FM radio transmitter.

    All the boomboxes are tuned into the DJ’s master FM broadcast, resulting in a mobile, synchronized sound system. This portable dance Party roams the night, generating complete awesomeness, street by street and block by block, onto buses and subways, into public fountains and beyond. Inevitably interfacing with the public, together we create an infectious epidemic of fun. A roaming Party adventure that lasts all night long!

    THE STARTING LOCATION:
    The Party’s Starting location will be announced THE NIGHT BEFORE THE EVENT via Twitter, Facebook and Mailing List.

    ALL-AGES:
    DDPs are hosted exclusively in public spaces and completely open and we take pride in creating the most inclusive Party possible. EVERYONE, of every AGE, BACKGROUND and STYLE is welcome.
    People show up to DDPs with their kids and parents all the time. Homeless people join in. It's all good. The more diversity the better. Music is the universal human language, dance is the universal human movement, and Partying is the universal human release.

    ALCOHOL:
    We DO NOT encourage or condone alcohol consumption. But if you choose to disregard the law and our heartfelt advice, please be discreet (e.g. pop bottles) and don’t ruin this for everyone else. Thank you.

    This alcohol policy is fully explained in the PARTY MANIFESTO: http://bit.ly/exgmki

    RESPECT:
    When we are Partying, be respectful of people and property and please don’t litter. We have worked hard to build a good name for ourselves and the DDP. We have also maintained a good rapport with police forces across the country and because of this, they have always helped us out and allowed everyone to have a good time. It is essential that we maintain these things if we want to continue to do these Parties. SPREAD THE WORD.

    GET A BOOMBOX:
    To tune in to our Party Broadcast. You can find them at thrift stores for $5-10 or on ebay:http://goo.gl/Bf31q
    We will provide as many boomboxes as possible, but it’s first-come-first-serve and they always run out and the more the merrier!
