The Queen Mary presented it’s newest beach club experience featuring live concert performances by Hip Hop royalty Kent Jones, Tyga, Lil Jon, B.o.B. and Sean Paul. It was the only place to be for festival-goers during this Labor Day Weekend in Southern California.
L.A.’s the REAL 92.3 hosted the holiday event with live sets by DJ Lezlee, DJ Mauricio, DJ Hed, DJ A-OH, and DJ Carisma and appearances by Big Boy from Big Boy in the Morning Show, Letty Martinez with DJ Damage, and Ayyde.
Overlooking the skyline of Downtown Long Beach and iconic Queen Mary ship, the first-ever day party expanded over a terrain of Queen Mary Park.
Southern Californians invaded park festivities, taking over foam dance floors, water slides, multiple bars, food vendors and V.I.P. cabanas, all while dancing to the hottest songs of summer 2016.
The performance line up kicked off with Tyga hitting center stage flaunting distressed jeans, a white tee and flannel, matched with a San Francisco Giants snapback. The 26-year-old rapper rocked the speakers with hits like “Cash Money,” “Stimulated,” “Make It Nasty,” “Ayo” and “Faded.” He rapped up his set with letting the audience in his feeling about TMZ shouting, “F**k you, TMZ!”
Getting the crowd crunk, as he is famously known to do, Lil Jon turned up the volume by adding splashes of Rock and EDM to the event’s Hip Hop repertoire. The Atlanta record producer’s distinct sounds of crunk rock – “Bend Ova,” “Let’s Go,” “Snap Yo Fingers,” “Get Low” and “Turned Down For What” – swayed the sea of fans into dancing, drinking and celebrating the holiday weekend at home.
Undoubtably, the fan favorite performer was B.o.B. as he was no stranger to diving and surfing into the crowd. Often, the Georgian producer took cell phones on a whim shouting out fans on social media. Whether unleashing tracks like “Airplane,” “Strange Clouds,” or “Nothin’ on You,” the platinum selling artist expressed love for his supporters and was committed to giving them a show to remember.
Announcing his appearance day of WET Carnival via Twitter, Sean Paul closed out the show like no other. The Jamaican rapper’s body moving beats stole the night as each guests tuned in to bump and grind alongside one another. Performing his Reggae records from career inception, “Dutty Paul” fans went loco as the Jamaican accent hit airwaves with “Got 2 Love U,” “Give It Up To Me,” “We Burnin,” “Temperature,” and “Give Me The Light.”
The night concluded with an afterparty held atop the Sports Deck of the historic ship. As passenger party-goers boarded Queen Mary, the REAL 92.3 crew including Big Boy and celebrity DJ’s David Faustino and SB The DJ, jumped on the turn tables to get the night started.
From 9pm to 2am, the afterparty parlayed underneath Long Beach stars with the city’s bright lights as a picturesque backdrop for one incredible night to remember.
Hip Hop’s best artists, water activities, carnival cuisines, So Cal locals and parties along the waterline and top deck of The Queen Mary made WET Carnival the number one place to be for Labor Day Weekend 2016.
