MTV brings to you the ideal Sundown party right around the bloc. (See what we did there?) With a view of the beach, a couple of brewskis and not to mention, tremendously engaging music, this doesn’t seem like a bad way to spend the weekend.

2.  The Exclusive Pre-Game Offer

On Saturday, Bloc Party concocted for all its attendees the “pre-game” offer. With two beers at the price of one, these happy party hours (3 to 5pm) deem this particular Sundown party outright irresistible.

3.  The Kickass Art Installations


This year MTV has gone all out with their art. Presenting equal parts avat-garde and funky art installations at the venue, BP 2015 will be an aesthetic affair, along with a musical one.
