Mexican Sensation DJ and Producer Alex Acosta has taken over the world with his fresh, upbeat and energetic sound. On top of being a chart-topping producer, he plays all the hottest music festivals and clubs around the globe. Acosta returns to Chicago this Friday, Aug. 12 to headline Neverland’s Imperial Harem party at Metro Chicago, 3730 N Clark.

Are you as excited for Market Days as we are? 

DJ Alex Acosta: Yes! I'm so happy to be back again this year for my third consecutive Market Days. And I'm more excited to come back and play for my Chicago boys this Friday. I haven't seen most of them since February.

How would you describe Market Days for someone who has never been?

DJ Alex Acosta: It's a great gathering of friends and a place to make new ones. Walking up and down the street of the fair and catching some of the best singers performing live is simply amazing. On top of that, at night there are some awesomely produced events that will keep you dancing till the wee hours of the morning!

Why is Imperial Harem destined to be the party of the weekend?

DJ Alex Acosta: The Neverland team is known for their production, from stage design to costume design. Prepare yourself to be wowed. Having said that, music is another component to make an event successful, so I'll make sure to serve the right beats, starting with my first track of the night. 

What will you be playing?

DJ Alex Acosta: A whole bunch of sexy beats layered with high-energy tracks.
