“Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.”
Being “free” is living in a country where you can express yourself without limitations. Whether that form of expression is found thru music, dancing or simply interacting with other humans; choose a path that tells your story the way you want it to be told. It may seem like 4th of July is all about sparklers, budweiser and flags, but being patriotic in my eyes is about being proud of where you are and how you got there. Reach for the stars and strip away the stripes of censorship.
Magnetic wishes you all a Happy 4th of July!

FRIDAY JULY 4
HUMANLIFE & MORE/POP INN LA
MAR VISTA, CA
Celebrate ‘Merica on the westside in a cute ass boutique hotel with first class sounds...
The venue, a 1940's estate, originally built by Ed Evans, the first champion NASCAR motorcycle racer, has been 'upcycled' and converted into an AirBnB hotel. The transformation is impressive. His home was one of a kind, a unique and sprawling compound, one of the largest lots on the Westside. The first time I visited the popINN, I fell in love, as it is charming and harkens nostalgia to the golden age of Los Angeles.
Multiple art installations, DJs, bands, circus performances, gourmet food, massage, vending and plenty of swimming pool for an ocean of bodies.

DOC MARTIN & MORE/DEEP DIVE
OASIS DAY CLUB. WOODLAND HILLS
An oasis for your ears...
RSVP for free entry by 3pm, $10 after.
“For our first ever pool party, we couldn't think of anyone more appropriate than the legendary Doc Martin. A true house music pioneer and hometown hero, Doc's dance-floor prowess speaks for itself, with everyone from Dixon to Ricardo Villalobos and Craig Richards lining up to share the decks with him. If that alone wasn't enough, he's joined by our own Anton Tumas, Moontribe's Ben Annand, and Ralph Macho: a special B2B vinyl set from Jeniluv and Heidi Lawden.
Such a tasty line-up would be nothing without an appropriate set and setting to enjoy it. Warner Center Marriott Hotel is entrusting us their pool for a complete Subtract takeover. Needless to say, we're bringing out the big guns for this one! A special Danley Sound Labs / Turbosound system that will blow your flip-flops off, as well as all the usual trappings of a Subtract Music event!” -SUBTRACT MUSIC
