Sunday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – F the Beach is back for another legendary all day long party featuring an eighteen hour event with over twenty DJs and live acts playing the best of house, tech house and techno. Founded by DJ and event promoter Bruno Correia, FTB has been going strong for years with special editions all over Rio.
In protest of the sun and beach, FTB brings together the underground culture of the nightlife scene in Rio de Janeiro. Far too often do you glance at your watch and realize that the night is almost over and its time to go home. FTB was created in order to keep the party going, and wow does it go. No other party in Rio de Janeiro brings together the amount of talent and variety that this party does.
