Like-minded friendly & up for it crowd and accessible sound, our DJs are tasked with discovering new musical gems that fit our desired vibe blending new beats with classic sounds resulting in a funky, vocal, bouncy feel.
We encourage Qwerkers to be themselves, we don’t define our crowd by age, gender or sexuality, and what you wear is entirely up to you. Most of all we ask that you respect those around you, don’t be a dick and have fun!
