Wow, what a great 18th annual Purgatory, Heaven & Hell 2023. I normally do a follow up post a few days after. But this year i rested up, got alot of feedback, and enjoyed all the party photos across social media. Seems that as I worked behind the scenes I missed one hell of a party. But I love watching it from the guests and my videographers view point. A small vision coming to a huge fruitation 18 years later excites me and motivates me for the next hotel takeover.
Before I get to what everyone has been asking. I would like to quickly thank you the guests whether it was your first time or have attended Purgatory before. I, We, have a tremendous team that make this event possible. Jen/Alex with the Dirty Vibes immersion photo booths, then the DesirousParty/Dirty Vibes Travel booth team full of host couples.from all over the U.S..These host couples feel the vibe of the brands and reflect it as well. The Dj's and their incredible energy. Having four stages it takes artists that can cover all the music genres. Hence why we had 22 DJ's this year. I know we can't make everyone happy music wise. But the DJ's damn well try across the event. We can have an amazing event, sexy crowd but we need Dj's that feel and know the vibe to move those bodies. Purgatory 2023 definitely had a great team of artists this year. Then the man who has been behind the majority of the hotel takeover sound/light designs is Miguel with Aura Systems. We dream up a design each year to bring you something uniquely different. This year's grand ballro om design has been on my wish list for the last 3 years. Expect to see it again with a few tweaks and alot more haze to amplify the light show. I then roll into the hotel staff who has welcomed us the last 4 Purgatory's to the DoubleTree. This team loves our guests and welcome us with open arms each year. It has been a pleasure to work with them and we look forward to Purgatory 2024 next year back at the Doubletree. Lastly my front door staff and security team. They along with the hotel front desk team are the first faces you see as you get to the party. They set the welcome impression for you and keep the welcome feelng flowing all weekend long over some really long hours. It is a big Purgatory framily for them and they love it.
Ok closing this out. Over the weekend we did right at 1400 people with all event and or two night combo tickets. Then we had our walk up crowd buying single event tickets over the four days and nights that was on top of that large number. Let's just say it was our largest attended Purgatory to date. Which is amazing as you will read below. The crowd was extremely sexy and a huge statement as to what and why DesirousParty.com was created for back in 2004.
i want to close out this year with comments that I received and or saw posted from Purgatory 2023 guests across social media. These are just comment captures as all guests are anonymous for their own privacy. But thank you for all the comments.
