Party weekend peaks at Heretic with Roland Belmares

Add this share
Five circuit stars and multiple party planners aligned to pull dancing queens to Atlanta last weekend for a Medusa Productions party series.

Official events and satellite offerings included a lineup of legendary Latin DJs. Alex Acosta and Cesar Hrnndz spun parties on Friday night and Saturday afternoon at Heretic. Jesus Montenez played Xion Afterhours in the wee hours of Sunday morning, followed by DJ Jerac in downtown Atlanta at 7 a.m.

That left open a centerpiece event for Saturday night. The prime time slot went to DJ Roland Belmares at Heretic. That’s where our photographer trained his lens in the gallery below.
