As Disco Donnie Presents celebrates its 30th anniversary, James “Disco” Donnie Estopinal has announced the company will be rebranding as Disco Events.
What we have built is bigger than just me now – it’s about The Disco Events team and the Disco fan community and it deserves a name that exemplifies that,” Estopinal said in a statement. “We’re excited for a fresh start as we head into our biggest years yet.”
Along with the name change, the company has unveiled a new logo, with Estopinal writing in a blog post that it’s retro-inspired style pays homage to Disco Presents’ early years. Donnie admits in his letter that the name was “riped off the logo of the vegetable oil-brand Crisco,” and that the logo will be exclusively used in 2024 as part of the brand’s celebrations. He also emphasizes that this new transition and name change, “is not just about me but reflects the collaborative spirit and dynamic evolution of our entire team at Disco Presents.”
To kick off the 30th anniversary celebrations, Disco Presents has announced 30th-inspired sweepstakes, special ticket deals, festival activations and fan contests. Disco’s Zoolu, a three-day festival during Mardi Gras, officially kicks off the 30th anniversary celebrations, with this year’s headliners including Illenium and RL Grime. Rabbit in The Moon (Live) s also joining for a special throwback event, “Zoolu Allstars.”
This year, Disco Presents is also launching a once-in-a-lifetime event, Texas Eclipse, taking place at Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, Texas, during the full-eclipse from April 5 to 9, with performances by Zeds Dead, Subtronics, LP Giobbi, Bob Moses and more.
Disco Donnie made headlines in 2020 after becoming the first electronic music company founder to buy back his company from the defunct SFX. In 2021, Disco Presents became the first music festival to successfully take place post-COVID with Ubbi Dubbi. The company acquired Lights All Night in 2022, partnered with emo and rap festival So What?! and joined forces with Illfest, Tahoe Live and Probably Nothing.
With the rebrand, the company’s URL and emails will switch to discopresents.com.
