With remixes and edits of Fleetwood Mac, crafted for the dance floor.
Dress Code: Metallically Magnificent

We call on Ancient Queens and Kings to twirl in decadence.
A gilded dance floor where mortals shine like the stars for one night.
Is it real? Or is it shadow and illusion?
They say:
Pure gold does not fear the furnace.

Since 2012, we have been hosting our tunnel-visioned event and celebrating the extensive back catalogue of Fleetwood Mac. With a curated and created assortment of remixes and edits we’ve shared our passion with like-minded hedonists all over the world. We’ve twirled in the mud at Glastonbury and tipped our top hat to the dust at Burning Man.

More Info

Hi, I’m Alec Benjamin. I’m from Phoenix. I live in L.A. I got into music. I play guitar. I play piano. I sing. I tell stories. I’m a narrator. I went to school. I got signed. I made an album. I got dropped. I played a f**k ton of shows. I toured with Jon Bellion, Matisyahu, and Hoodie Allen. I played parking lots and lines during Shawn Mendes and Troye Sivan concerts to get fans. I handed out a ton of business cards. My Staples bill was insane. I wrote a bunch of new songs. Now, I’m putting them out. The first one is called “Let Me Down Slowly.” That’s only Chapter 1. Sincerely, Alec Benjamin
