Carnaval 2008: Sampa, Rio or Floripa?

It looks like Brazil will get invaded, not only by foreign tourists during the Carnival 2008, but also by several international DJs. They have been booked to play in either São Paulo (Sampa), Rio de Janeiro (Rio), Salvador or Florianopolis (Floripa), but mostly will ended up in Floripa, and I'm loving the flyers from "the Week".

Carnival will take place at the beginning of February this year, and even our beloved Stéphan Grondin is scheduled to play in both Rio and Floripa.

Although Rio is the most famous city, Floripa is becoming the super hot gay spot, so much that even "The Week" and "Flexx Club" are opening branches in the city - I just don't know if these new spots are going to stay open during the whole Brazilian Summer, or if they are open just for carnival. Obviously we cannot forget to mention the local clubs (Warung and Clube Green Valley), which are also bringing heavy weights in both house and trance music.

Among the DJs that will find themselves in Brazil between February 1 and 5 are: Deep Dish, Peter Rauhofer, Offer Nissim, Chris Cox, Sander Van Doorn, Stéphan Grondin, Fatboy Slim, Booka Shade, Marky, David Guetta, Tony Moran, Tiesto, Mischa Daniels, Brett Henrichsen, Sasha, Eric Entrena and others.
