Bingo, St. Patrick’s Day, a rave – these are just a few components of an epically wild party coming to Vancouver this March.

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Bingo Loco promises to ignite your ‘good-time’ senses with a smorgasbord of confetti, conga lines, speed Macarena, lip-sync battles, dance-offs, foul-mouthed wind-up merchants, and more. Dubbing themselves “Ireland’s most outrageous party,” they offer wild prizes, outrageous props, and epic tunes.

And they don’t offer puny prizes, either. In fact, prizes include everything from a convertible to a Las Vegas holiday to a beautiful boat. In total, the prizes are valued at a whopping 150,000 euros spread across 300 parties.

But what exactly is Bingo Loco?

“We’ve taken a conventional game that was approaching extinction and used it as a focal point to get an extremely adrenaline fuelled party of the ground. What happened was an unprecedented demand for something completely new. Every event to date has sold out in advance for two years straight,” said William Meara, Bingo Loco’s Minister for Mischief.

The fun invades Celebrities Nightclub on March 15, and tickets are on sale now.
