Framework Music's 8th Anniversary Extravaganza...


Theme for this year is... "The Glitter Fantastic!" Take whatever concept from the realms of your fantasies, manifest whatever fantastic character you can conceive, then throw a glitter bomb on it! Sparkle Unicorn? Glittered Faerie Princess? Bedazzled Banshee? Your imagination is your only limit as you trip The Glitter Fantastic!

We go over the top with sparkly, flashy, glittery deco for this event. If you went to any of our previous German Sparkle Parties, you know we like to give you plenty of eye candy! But this night is not only about a visual feast... we've got serious treats for your feets in the way of some top-notch music lined up for you as well!

We are VERY excited to host the return to Ottawa of one of our favourite DJ's from San Francisco, whose party-rocking ethics and good vibes have been lighting up dancefloors across North America and Europe for decades:

Framework Music is turning 8 years old!! The German Sparkle Party theme is inspired by a worldwide sensation music video of the same name by "The Something Experience". This is our chance every year to be silly and outrageous, let loose and have fun.



A German Sparkle Party (GSP) is a fun and frolicsome celebration of all things shiny, blinky, glowy and dazzly, set to a soundtrack of the best underground house and techno the city has to offer. Trust us... it's the PERFECT bright and light-hearted way to celebrate the arrival of spring after the dark winter months that seem to drag on forever in the national capital region.


SPARKLE PARTY COSTUMES, fun and bright outfits are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED! This year's theme is "The Glitter Fantastic". Sparkles, Sequins, Blinky Lights, Glitter... let your imagination run wild! Bring your best look from the realms of fantasy and sparkle up Mercury Lounge with us!

Watch the German Sparkle Party video linked above to get some great ideas for your outfit - you'll be inspired along with us to rock sparkly accessories and makeup, rubber boots and of course your party pants!


A little something for those guests who want to add that one missing element to their sparkle costume and really take it to the next level!

* * Framework Music will provide all glitter tattoos and face painting FREE OF CHARGE for EARLY ARRIVALS, ending at 11pm. * *
After 11pm, tattoos and face paint design are still available for the extra low price of only $5 each! So make sure to arrive soon after our doors open at 9pm and let Framework help you SPARKLE YOURSELF!


Do you feel you need some more sparkle in your step, more flash in your Friday night? As always, we'll set up our ever-popular SPARKLE STATION in the loft, allowing the woefully unprepared to get into the theme with some complimentary sparkle accessories
