LOS ANGELES — Helmy Inc. announced Tuesday the lineup and official sponsors for EroticaFest 2004 in Miami.

The Aug. 14 event coincides with the Internext-Expo in Hollywood, Fla., and includes live nude ringside wrestling from Carmen Electra’s Naked Women’s Wrestling League, as well as performances by Alien Ant Farm and Poet Name Life from Black Eyed Peas.

CE Cash, Hot Movies, Interclimax, Dating Gold, Real Wild Girls, Epic Cash, Web Air Hosting, Jade Entertainment and the NWWL are collaborating with Hollywood-based GigaCash for EroticaFest, which will be hosted by adult star Ron Jeremy.

"Our mission with EroticaFest has been to put together an industry event that is truly of grand scale, featuring leading rock acts, live adult entertainment and celebrity guests, as well as an entire VIP floor reserved exclusively for adult industry attendees,” Alec Helmy, president of GigaCash, told XBiz. “This will be an unforgettable evening for all.”

GigaCash Vice President Stephen Bugbee said that EroticaFest will be promoted to both mainstream and adult audiences.

“The lines between the two are getting closer over time,” Bugbee told XBiz. “We think EroticaFest will be the most memorable event at Internext.”

EroticaFest 2004 is scheduled for Aug. 14 at Mansion Miami in Miami Beach. Doors open at 10 p.m.

Organizers are expecting the event to sell out, though it will be free to attend for industry members and adult webmasters. Early registration is encouraged through the event’s official website.
