The night is lined up with live entertainment, DJ, music and dancing



Biks has been making noise behind the decks for years, which propelled him to becoming a highly in-demand DJ worldwide. This notoriety  brought him the attention of international pop star Jay Sean, who signed Biks  to be his official tour DJ in 2004. For over 15 years, Biks has continued to tour with Jay Sean and perform at concerts, festivals, and radio performances globally!
