Hustla Ball Returns
Le Cabaret Promises Sex Positivity and World Class Talent
By Joslyn Hatfield
HustlaBall returns to Las Vegas January 13-16, 2022, for its eighth year of sex positive mischief of the highest order. The worldwide phenomenon returns bringing some of the hottest international names in entertainment and nightlife, as it has for nearly a decade. From Televiv to Berlin. Vancouver to Las Vegas. HustlaBall promises an inclusive multi-day party built on respect, consent and yes, a little pushing of the envelope.
According to Executive Producer Fabrice Marino, HustlaBall is for anyone who wants to escape the mundane and explore Le Cabaret, the 2022 theme for the event. “It’s the only event of its kind in North America that combines erotica, bondage, kink and in a welcoming environment,” said Marino. “HustlaBall is an inclusive space that celebrates body positivity and every identity represented in our beautiful rainbow.”
Marino established himself in the nightlife industry with HustlaBall and is a key member of the production committee for Fire Island’s famed Pines Party. His newest venture is executive producing Tech Maison (the newest Burning Man Inspired after-hours party) in jungle of Tulum, Mexico.
Marino beams with pride when he speaks about the caliber of entertainment, he has amassed for the Las Vegas event. “We have an outstanding lineup with some of the hottest DJs in the world and we’ve done a lot to differentiate this experience from the typical circuit party,” he said. “You take someone like Pagano out of London, UK who is a really big techno name with a long list of credits. And pair him with someone like Isaac Soto out of Mexico,” he continued. “Soto’s roots are as a conductor of classical music. What he did for Zero Day Festival in Tulum is insane,” said Marino. “At 24 years old he is exploring incredibly interesting things musically and quite different than his peers.”
HustlaBall is home to arguably some of the most erotic dance parties in the world and boasts a weekend full of face time with the hottest LGBTQ+ Adult entertainers in the industry. The annual descends on the Artisan Hotel for a complete takeover. Visit www.hustlaball.com to purchase tickets.
