"Oakland’s most exciting New Year’s Eve party"!


La Pelanga!

La Pelanga is a DJ collective born out of Cali, Colombia, and based in Oakland, California. Since 2008, they’ve been bringing community together around a crazy, positive dance floor with the freshest sounds from Kinshasa and Cartagena, Port au Prince and Nueva York, Oakland and Abidjan. 


For nearly a decade, La Pelanga has been building community around a crazy, positive dance floor – cooking up sonic flavors from all over the globe, melting down borders in time and space, whipping up a frenzy of the freshest beats from their own backyard in the Bay, to Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and beyond.

Born out of Cali, Colombia, and based in Oakland, California, La Pelanga mixes music from Nueva York to Port au Prince, Kinshasa to Cartagena, Oakland to Abidjan. They unite the old with the new, the city with the village, the popular with the obscure: cumbia, dancehall, afrobeat, reggaeton, soukous, hip hop, salsa, champeta, kompa, coupé decalé, currulao, and much, much more.

The night kicks off at 9pm a vinyl-only hour of tracks on wax that have crossed oceans and borders into the depths of La Pelanga's crates. From 10pm onward, the dance floor transforms into a party connected across decades and continents – celebrating how music and culture transcend, transform, and live on.

Nadie te quita lo bailado.  /   Nobody can take away what you’ve danced.

"Compared to fancy hotel and club parties happening in San Francisco, OAKNYE's tasteful events are uber-affordable and will likely have a more enjoyable, intimate vibe." – East Bay Express 2017 | 2016 | 2015
