About this Event


Dear Framework Family & German Sparkle Party ticket-holders,

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart, and after strong consideration of the public health and safety that we have decided to postpone our events up to mid-April and potentially beyond. This includes event dates at Mercury Lounge on March 21, April 4 (<< German Sparkle Party), and April 12, and at City At Night on March 28. Along with our venue partners, we will be monitoring public health guidelines to determine when to reschedule our events.

Those of you who purchased an advance ticket to German Sparkle Party, the ticket will be honoured at the rescheduled event date. For now, don't be surprised that we've changed the event's date for German Sparkle Party to Dec 30 2020. This is just to keep the event as *pending* and active on social platforms, but we will adjust the date once rescheduling is confirmed and advise ticket holders of the new dates.

* * Please know that has suspended all promoter payouts and are holding all funds from ticket sales in their company's account, so your money and ticket are secured and guranteed for the new date.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. We are incredibly grateful to everyone in this community for their ongoing support and we are looking forward to seeing you again on the dance floor. All of us coming together and supporting each other and our community will see us get through this, and we'll soon be reunited on the dance floor.

While we are self-isolating, hopefully you can get some good living room dance parties going with dj sets from the Framework Music soundcloud. We have about 100 sets recorded live at various past Framework events. :)

Be safe! <3

- The Framework Music Team


Framework Music's 9th Anniversary Extravaganza...


This year's theme is a bit of an homage to the 70's... "Glitz & Glam!"

glitz (ɡlɪts)


ostentatious showiness; gaudiness or glitter

glam (glæm)


Flamboyant, extravagantly flashy glamour; Relating to glam rock.

We go over the top with sparkly, flashy, glittery deco for this event. If you went to any of our previous German Sparkle Parties, you know we like to give you plenty of eye candy! But this night is not only about a visual feast... we've got serious treats for your feets in the way of some top-notch music lined up for you as well!

For our 9th Anniversary celebration we decided to, for the first time ever at a German sparkle Party, have your Framework Music resident DJs provide the soundtrack for the night. We'll be back with a special international headliner and an Ottawa favourite for next year's 10th Anniversary.

Do you like to dancey-dance? Do you like to party-party?

Framework Music is turning 9 years old!! The German Sparkle Party theme is inspired by a worldwide sensation music video of the same name by "The Something Experience". This is our chance every year to be silly and outrageous, let loose and have fun.



A German Sparkle Party (GSP) is a fun and frolicsome celebration of all things shiny, blinky, glowy and dazzly, set to a soundtrack of the best underground house and techno the city has to offer. Trust us... it's the PERFECT bright and light-hearted way to celebrate the arrival of spring after the dark winter months that seem to drag on forever in the national capital region.


SPARKLE PARTY COSTUMES, fun and bright outfits are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED! This year's theme is "Glitz & Glam".

GLITZ: All the glittering and sparkling extravagance of Hollywood fashion, filled with metallics, sequins... the more ostentatious the better! Just let your imagination run wild!

GLAM: David Bowie was a pioneer of this fashion trend; glam rock men and women embraced metallics, ruffles, satin blouses, bold colours, tight pants, platform shoes, unique makeup and dyed hair.

Watch the German Sparkle Party video linked above to get some great ideas for your outfit - you'll be inspired along with us to rock sparkly accessories and makeup, rubber boots and of course your party pants!

GLITTER TATTOOS & FACE PAINTING from Glitter Tattoos by sparklingexpressions! A little something for those guests who want to add that one missing element to their sparkle costume and really take it to the next level!

* * We will provide all glitter tattoos and face painting FREE OF CHARGE for EARLY ARRIVALS (timeframe TBD * *

Afterwards, tattoos and face paint design are still available for the extra low price of only $5 each! So make sure to arrive soon after our doors open at 9:30pm to let Framework and Sparkling Expressions help you SPARKLE YOURSELF! * *


Do you feel you need some more sparkle in your step, more flash in your Friday night? As always, we'll set up our ever-popular SPARKLE STATION in the loft, allowing the woefully unprepared to get into the theme with some complimentary sparkle accessories.
