Although Tanjerine is focused on food, fashion, film and cocktails, we couldn’t forget the music! We have put together a DJ lineup for all four nights of Tanjerine that we’re sure you’ll enjoy. We won’t be surprised if Tanjerine turns into a dance party each night…we’ll probably join in!
“Being in the Midwest, Indy still gets a bad rep for our lack of fashion and food sense,” said DJ Gabby Love. “I am looking forward to seeing and experiencing all the talent at Tanjerine that can change that rep for Indy and prove that Indianapolis can be a force in both the worlds of fashion and food.”
Meet the four DJs that will be providing the soundtrack to Tanjerine!
