WATCH: Inside that Pink Party in West Philly over Valentine’s Day weekend

DJ Astro 8000’s bash is so popular it’s heading to South by Southwest.

It's a fashion event.

It was a Valentine’s party, but the focus wasn’t vibing with bae.

Instead, it was all about the color pink.

We previewed the popular event last week, talking to its creator, local DJ Astro 8000, about what inspired him and how his vision has quickly evolved from a Philly warehouse dance party to a don’t-miss jam that’s expanding to other cities — and will even be part of the official lineup at this year’s South by Southwest festival.

Then we had to see it in person.

Thanks to videographer Holli Stephens, who captured the moves, the fashion and the attitude, you can also see what the Pink Party is like. Check it out below.
