Facilitating multiple dance events as part of In The Soil Arts Festival.


Killer Beets Collective was formed in early 2013 between a group of friends and fellow DJs with a goal of fostering a community oriented dance culture in St Catharines, to support each other in the development of our DJ skills and careers, and to share those skills with others in our community.

We specialize in dance party production and promotion, providing soundsystems and lighting, and booking DJ line-ups for various events. We also facilitate free workshops for aspiring DJs.

We are best known for our Rise Above Revival dance parties, but have a lot of experience creating alternative dance events in a variety of settings. Other past events include SCENE Music Festival, In The Soil Arts Festival, and the Sunset Sundays series of family friendly dance parties on the NAC rooftop patio. We’ve also provided music and soundsystem services for yoga classes, weddings, magic shows and private house parties.
