Thousands sample Argentine nightlife at Kelly's

More than 2,000 people from across Northern Ireland witnessed the best of Argentinean nightlife come alive at Kellys Portrush at the weekend as part of the region’s first Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange experience.

The event saw Smirnoff continue its global initiative which saw 14 countries swap the best of their nightlife on the same night last November with Ireland swapping with Argentina.

Performances from a host of Argentinean inspired acts including fire acts and stilt walkers helped create a wow factor to the night. Guests were welcomed on arrival by Paka the fire breathing horse and were treated to a flash mob of tango dancers who kept the crowds entertained with their blend of authentic Argentinean dance moves.

A diverse line-up of big name talent included DJ David De Valera who said: “I have played in clubs and venues all over the world but the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange in Kellys was one of the best nights I have ever experienced.”

Completing the music line up was Kellys resident DJ Col Hamilton who played his usual crowd pleasing tunes but with an Argentinean twist and one of Northern Ireland’s most popular DJ’s COOL FM’s Connor Phillips.

Niamh Henry, Smirnoff Assistant Brand Manager, Ireland said: “The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project created one-of-a-kind nightlife events in countries right around the world in 2010 with some 18 thousand people across 6 continents witnessing the best of global nightlife come alive on one night. We’re delighted to have been able to bring The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project to Northern Ireland and are thrilled that so many people came to Kellys Portrush."
