Suma Beach, rising from its ashes

Before Suma Beach, who would have started their big Saturday night by taking the subway to Haciosman and getting into a Kilyos-bound shuttle with a bunch of strangers? Remember those first Suma Beach parties early summer 2013? While Gezi was shaking the city, we had our little oasis that provided moments of relief during these crazy times, allowing us to chill at the beach during the day, enjoy great DJ’s at night and dance until sunrise. After that golden year, Suma Beach’s second season was marked with lots of rain and a bitter ending: a big storm destroyed most of the facilities and equipment.

Needless to say, we were thrilled to hear that the Suma guys had rolled up their sleeves to rebuild everything and reopen for a third season. On the menu this summer: a new decoration, a large covered area for the rainy days, a self-service restaurant and, of course, an amazing line-up (Richie Hawtin, Jennifer Cardini, Nu, Acid Pauli, Mind Against, Rhadoo, Osun Lade and many more).

So mark your calendar: the opening party is on June 5th. After that weekend, most parties will happen on Saturdays but keep an eye on their Facebook page for surprise Friday events. See you in Kilyos!
