Centaur Motorcycle Club’s Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend is an annual festival weekend that attracts thousands of leather men, kinksters, fetish lovers, and curious spectators from all over the world to Washington, D.C. over MLK weekend. This year’s festivities begin Thursday, January 12th, and run through Sunday, January 15. Once again, the KINETIC team of local DC party producers – Zach Renovátes, Dougie Meyer, and Jesus Quispe (Q) – have partnered with MAL to produce KINK: four official events headlined by eight of the world’s leading festival DJs. Bootcamp, UNCUT XL, discoVERS XL, and the weekend’s main event, KINETIC: KINK, will take place at various venues throughout Washington, D.C. Tickets for all KINETIC events are available now at www.kineticpresents.com.
“With the monumental news that the senate has passed the same-sex marriage bill, we are celebrating freedom at this year’s KINETIC: KINK,” says Jesus Quispe.
“We have secured the city’s best venues for our MAL Weekend parties,” Zach Renovátes adds. “We welcome every person in the queer community to our KINETIC: KINK dance floors to unleash their wildest urges this holiday weekend.”
KINETIC: KINK Weekend kicks off Thursday, January 12th with the BOOTCAMP party at Soundcheck. Here, men will have their first opportunity to get geared up for the weekend as drill sergeant Diego Barros, one of Only Fans top performers, readies all for the next three days of sinful debauchery. DJs Conner Curnick and J Warren will provide the essential training beats.
Friday night is UNCUT XL, where international superstar DJ Alex Acosta and DJ Onyx will man the decks at BLISS Nightclub, commandeering all three of its massive rooms. While the perpetual beats pound the dance floors, partiers can cruise the labyrinth of extended play zones, unleashing their most intimate fantasies until the wee hours of the morning.
The weekend’s main event, KINETIC: KINK, takes place Saturday night at Echostage, the prodigious venue recently voted the #1 Club in the United States. International Superstar DJs GSP and Ben Bakson headline. RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Alyssa Edwards will serve dominatrix lewks that whip the audience into submission. There will also be live kink acts and triple X performances.
On Sunday, KINETIC: KINK closes the festivities with discoVERS XL, an event included with the MAL Full Weekend Package. Grammy-nominated DJ Abel and disco diva Alexis Tucci will usher in a night of jubilant disco and house music with performances seamlessly integrated into their sets.
