Lawmakers, politicians and members of the media were shocked today when legendary rave promoter Disco Donnie announced his bid for President of the United States at an impromptu press conference held at a seedy after-hours location in Las Vegas. Disco Donnie will hit the campaign trail beginning at Sun City Music Festival September 5th & 6th, 2015

Washington, DC – Donning a gold jumpsuit with zebra-striped velour dress shoes, Disco Donnie announced not only his bid for president of the United States of America, but also the formation of a new political party called the Party Party. In an effort to reinstate the basic ideals of partying to the 2016 election and to seek music festival and clubbing reform, the Party Party stands to fight for every American’s basic civil rights to party in the United States.
Disco Donnie will begin his campaign trail starting September 5th and 6th at Sun City Music Festival in El Paso, TX where he has planned to join with his fellow people to rally support around this new political party. You can also follow along with his campaign on www.DiscoDonnieLand.com.
When asked why he’s decided to take on the difficult task of launching a presidential campaign and new political party, Disco Donnie partially unzipped his jumpsuit, exposing a tasteful amount of chest hair, and shared the following insights:
“My fellow party constituents. We are a people whose heart beats, with beats. We are a people, founded under the belief that all genres are created equal. That they are endowed by their listeners with certain unalienable rights at festivals, club events, and raves. However, listeners no longer feel listened to.
I fear we have lost sight of our original goal. We hardly see multi-genre shows and festivals anymore. We hardly see new artists on announced lineups or hear the names of the old school when some Ravers discuss which DJs are “killing it.” I stay up at night worrying about whether future kids will learn the names of Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, and Juan Atkins in their music plurriculum at school.
The Party Party fights for those who are in rave turmoil. Those who have lost their job because they showed up late after experiencing a layover while traveling back from TomorrowWorld. Those who eat nothing but ramen noodles while saving up to go to WMC–ahem, sorry, “Miami Music Week.”
Hearing about these situations breaks my heart – I look around me and I see party people are looking for a change in the status quo. What our scene needs now is a great leader. Someone who can take the party and make it truly great again. A leader who understands partying is a job and that you shouldn’t be fired from it.
That’s why I’ve decided to announce that I am running as the Party Party President of the United States.
On Capitol Hill, I want a House [Music] of Representatives that reflects the best of our great scene and addresses the growing challenges of partying:
We must restore the role of DJs to create proper vibes so that the party can prosper and flourish. We have to unify the ravers around the values we all share:
Other party leaders have had their chance to create the best party and they have failed. The Party Party is willing to take these challenges head on with new leadership, fresh ideas, and a different approach.
I am running for Party Party President because I want to help create a neon, blacklight-approved vision of growth and opportunity for everyone who parties in America.”
