*** We will “RISE” — Rain or shine! ***

We all know the weather in Texas can be very unpredictable, but we are ready for it! SISU Uptown Resort, the amazing venue for the Rise Pool Party, has a huge indoor space, including its own DJ booth and dance floor. New for this year, SISU has expanded, covered outdoor areas so you may still enjoy being outside and out of any weather Mother Nature may throw at us.

Temperatures are rising as Purple Party Weekend plans to heat up Dallas this spring with the city’s hottest pool party. Rise is the official pool party of PPW15 and the only place you’ll want to be Saturday afternoon as international DJ and producer Wayne G takes control of the turntables with an opening set by Dallas’s own DJ MNDO.

Wayne G is one of the circuit’s most popular DJs due to his unique style and impressive musicality, as seen in his ever-growing list of chart-smashing productions and remixes. Wayne began his DJ career nearly 20 years ago in London with a nine-year residency at the world-famous Heaven nightclub, which put him firmly on the map as a star in the growing world of international DJs. Today he is known as much for his high energy sets as his impeccable work remixing artists such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Katy Perry, and Whitney Houston.

Wayne takes the crowd on a musical journey starting with house, electro, tribal, anthemic vocal house, and brings the energy through percussive beats and uplifting riffs seamlessly mixed together to create a melodic, high-energy experience. His sets are notorious for being filled with his own productions, many of which remain unheard unless you get to hear him live.

Rise returns to the fabulous Sisu Uptown resort. A short mile away from our host hotel, Sisu is one of Dallas’s premiere party destinations and the frequent host of international DJ superstars. Sisu is a departure from the Dallas club scene, offering friendly hospitality, a gorgeous salt water pool, deluxe cabanas, and a delicious menu of drinks and culinary bites to keep you fueled and ready to Rise.

Join us for a fantastic day of sun, fun and, of course, dancing.
