Counting back the months, it has been almost two years since the last live Nation of the Nightkids featuring Fracus & Darwin, a collaboration with Hard Dance Texas and Project Shiromayu, which eventually became HakubiVerse; furthermore, it would over one year since San AnTokyo 3 featuring Zoe VanWest, our last live show with Hard Dance Texas at all before the COVID-19 pandemic put our daily lives at a screeching halt. Eventually we tried to fill the void with a 2-night virtual festival and as successful as the Okashicon At Home after-party was, no online event could replicate the live experience we had pre-pandemic. Now that people are getting vaccinated and we are returning to normal life, it is time to rally the Nightkids and restore the rave once again in Texas. HakubiVerse, along with Dream Drop Productions (Hard Dance Texas), brings to you the 3rd annual Nation of the Nightkids at 800 Live Bar in San Antonio, Texas.
Unlike the 2019 edition of Nation of the Nightkids, this year’s edition will focus on the pure dance sounds of Trance and House featuring two veterans of the San Antonio EDM community in the main event, Texas legend Shawn Jackson and the AnimEDM RAVEmaker, Sephi Hakubi. Shawn Jackson will be celebrating his 20th year of his DJ career as a pioneer of San Antonio’s EDM scene, teaming up with his protégé and the innovator of rave. Jackson & Hakubi have been working together the last few years working to further build HakubiVerse and revitalize San Antonio’s rave scene. First meeting in 2013 and eventually performing together at the same lineups starting in 2017. They have officially performed back to back on Sephi Hakubi’s Twitch channel through Hakubi First Fridays; however, Nation of the Nightkids 2021 will officially be their tag-team debut live on the main stage.
This is not all the news just yet after all as there’s much more to come with our guest support announcements; furthermore, Nation of the Nightkids 2021 will also have AFTER-HOURS! San Antonio literally going to rave all night until the night ends. Stay tuned to our Twitter; as well as, our event page on Facebook for additional news and announcements; although, don’t wait until the cats are out their bags and it gets too late as DISCOUNT TICKETS are ON SALE NOW on Loop-1.
