Amid the EDCs, Summerbursts, Glastonburys, and Spring Awakenings of the world, there is certainly still room for a good old Full Moon party. This weekend in New York, Governors Island will play host to an extraterrestrial beach party, best served with lots of indie dance and nu disco. In case you’re still a bit unclear what this music may sound like, Air Zaïre has put together a perfectly poised mix for both partygoers and wallflowers. The party, designed as a tribute to Thailand’s famed Full Moon parties, is pulling names like Yuksek, The Knocks, Cyril Hahn, Tanlines, Miami Horror, and Wild Belle to New York’s favorite island that’s not Manhattan (sorry…Randall’s and Long Island). If this makes you boogie enough to buy a ticket, they’re certainly still available for purchase here.
