NEW MONTHLY


With summer just around the corner Shine Music x Marz present: 613 ALL STARS

Come by Babylon every last Thursday of the month to see a rotation of the finest DJs in the capital. Every month comes with a new round of local DJs that have added to the foundation of Ottawa’s music scene. This non-genre specific night gives these turntable masters the freedom to play the music they love, and show us why they are notorious in this city. Don’t miss the first round because this All Star team is going to light the stage up.
