As the sun started to go down, a summer breeze pushed party smoke across the bronzed bodies. The pool was dotted with bikini-clad girls hitting AMP Radio beach balls back and forth while AMP Radio’s own Ruby Sparks , DJ Diversity and DJ Mad Mike got the crowd ready with obscure electroclash nuggets from Fannypack and old-school Cali hip-hop jams.
The crowd started to get into gear, taking shots and scoping out hotties dressed in the sexy summer uniform of acid-wash booty shorts, sky-high wedges, and perfectly-coifed beachy waves.
Best friends posed for sunset selfies, balancing beach balls and drinks with celeb-style stature. One EDM-loving beauty wore a red and white baseball raglan that she customized with the words “Jessica Loves Tiesto.” She held a sign decorated with red glitter letters that said simply and perfectly, “Club Life.”
Huge skyscrapers loomed over the scene, including the four sci-fi perfect towers of the iconic Westin Bonaventure, where the amazing event was being held. Inside the buildings, you could see jealous business people looking down, finishing up their day.
Thanks @ampradio Radio for a great party last night!
As the lights started to dim across the urban horizon around 8pm, Dzeko & Torres double-teamed the decks with a steady mixes of Blur into club bangers prompting the crowd to put their “hands up.” More people started to crowd the dance floor; guys in striped muscle tees balanced tiny girls pumping frenzied fists on their shoulders.
When Tiesto came out to cheers, they slipped down so that they could dance; blinking light rings gifted by Bud Light flashing across the night sky as they danced.

Flanked by multicolored strobes and dope graphics, Tiesto brought the feeling of an Ibiza island party to the 4th floor Bonaventure rooftop. Smoke and glitter covered the audience while he mixed songs from John Legend, Icona Pop, Coldplay, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and a slew of bass-throbbing EDM craziness that sent the audience into a flurry.
Midway though his set, Matthew Koma joined Tiesto with their collab, “Wasted.” Balancing a guitar, cutie Koma asked the audience to give it up for the blissed out and blessed Tiesto who was clearly enjoying his “day” job.
When he mixed a song into Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be,” it felt like he was dedicating the song to himself and the whole crowd. Because, truly, there’s no place else we’d rather be.
