Looks like Traviswild made quite the impression in the Hamptons last year, as his signature soiree will be returning to the East End for three major holiday happenings this coming summer.

A West Coast-based DJ, Traviswild (aka Travis Peitz) has made a name for himself as the host and selector of an event known as the Animal Party. Usually based in San Francisco, it’s a jungle-themed affair where guests are asked to come attired in animal prints and beastly accessories – and to further the feel, an Animal Party space is decorated in fun, faux greenery, while blow-up giraffes, monkeys and other inflated fauna get bounced around the crowd as Travis spins energetic sets of pounding, bass-fueled EDM beats.

Already a success story in California since 2012, ‘Animal' briefly migrated to the East Coast in 2013, stopping twice in the Hamptons – once at Sienna Ultralounge in East Hampton and again at Georgica in Wainscott – but in 2014, Sienna is to be the sole LI site of the bash as Traviswild and his program are slated to return for Memorial Day Weekend (Sunday, May 25), Fourth of July Weekend (Saturday, July 5) and Labor Day Weekend (Saturday, Aug. 30).

No tickets will be sold for these events, but reservations can be made via email ( and by phone (646-957-6089); for more information visit
