During the roaring twenties, Gatsby’s Mansion had a real life counterpart in a more tropical setting: Casa Bacardí, where thousands of guests were invited for legendary weekend long parties in Cuba. History saw the move of Bacardí to Puerto Rico, and the family had to start again during the sixties, but instead of closing their doors they brought Casa Bacardí to a whole new level.
Whether at the fabulous visitor centre they set up in Cataño, Puerto Rico, or at a pop up Casa like the one they will open at Electric Picnic 2016, the hospitality and fun-loving spirit of almost one century ago is taken up to eleven and serves as inspiration for anyone wishing to host an unforgettable fiesta.
Turn your house into Casa Bacardí for a night and throw a party that your friends will remember not just because how good the food or the drinks were, but for how welcomed and appreciated they felt. Begin with choosing the right tunes: we came up with this playlist with a selection of tracks from the line-up that will keep Casa Bacardí at Electric Picnic 2016 dancing all night.
