Just ahead of its 10th anniversary kickoff event April 2 at Last Concert Café, Praia Urbana founders Bobby Blyss and Steven Towers sat down to discuss a decade of "urban beach" dance parties in Houston.
"Praia Urbana is an all-day electronic music festival. It started off as a smaller party but its gotten bigger over the years," Towers said. "We play mostly underground dance music, techno and house. We don't really delve into the commercial EDM music."
Towers and Blyss discussed the festival's growth from its home at LCC to turns in Austin and as far off as Ibiza. Locally, the event's seen everything from Houston's beautiful sun and music worshipers to lost and never-to-be-seen-again prosthetics, all set to the beat of skilled deejays from around the world.
