The Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro is currently at the epicenter of one of the world's biggest parties—the World Cup. During the daytime hours, millions of soccer, or fútbol if you will, fans are spending their time screaming at the top of their lungs while watching some of the most epic showdowns in the history of sports. But when the sun goes down, the real party starts, and most people hit the streets in search of a rocking dance party.

Dutch DJ hero Nicky Romero however knows that partying on the ground floor is so last year, and decided to take his CDJs to the roof of an LED-lit hotel in Rio to throw down a killer DJ set for some lucky attendees. In this video, watch Nicky take it up a notch while surrounded by packs of beautiful and dance-hungry Brazilians, soundtracked by his crazy new hit "Next Level." We think it's time for a flight down south—who's coming with us?
