EDC New York unfortunately ends on the earlier side at MetLife Stadium around 11PM, but thankfully the party will continue throughout the night — and probably well into the morning — at Pacha NYC, 4Sixty6, Bliss in New Jersey, and Cielo afterwards. There are three days of EDC, but Pacha has enlisted various different clubs to host afterparties each and every night.
On Friday, Fedde Le Grand will take over Pacha and Cosmic Gate will be at Bliss in NJ. On Saturday — well, that’s TBA. But leave it to the Jacked crew to close out the weekend, with R3hab at 4Sixty6 in Jersey, and Afrojack returning to Pacha NYC yet again. Tickets are on sale now, so head to Pacha NYC’s website for all the details!
It’s hard to believe that Electric Daisy Carnival New York is upon us, after months of rumors, announcements, and pretty significant developments (like the addition of a third day). Well, one of the final pieces to the EDC puzzle is the all important list of set times, which has finally been released by Pacha NYC and Insomniac. As expected, Saturday arguably has the most impressive lineup of the weekend, but Sunday and Friday aren’t too bad either. Begin making your schedule and find the complete list of set times below the break.
Robbie Rivera’s Dance or Die bus tour has been taking the US by storm since it kicked off immediately after Juicy Beach during Miami Music Week. Stopping first in Atlanta, this weekend it stops in Pittsburgh, PA and Pacha in New York as it approaches its final dates. We’ve been keeping track of Robbie and busmates PeaceTreaty and Bassjackers throughout their national crisscrossing, and with only four stops to go, the clock is ticking on your last chance to see the man who’s been known to “Live for the Music.”
In tandem with Robbie’s NYC appearance, we’re raffling off a pair of VIP tickets for his Pacha show on Friday. Get these tickets and enter our contest after the break.
Danny Tenaglia isn’t a name we often cover on Dancing Astronaut, but the heartfelt message he just posted to his Facebook page caught our attention. The 51 year-old DJ is “‘resigning’ (not retiring)” from the world of DJing after 26 consecutive years of WMC and 12 years in Ibiza. In his own words, “I HAVE SEEN THE MOUNTAINTOP as a DJ and I just need to STOP and smell the roses of my life.” He will be playing one final show for his belated birthday at Pacha NYC on April 28th, but all future gigs will be cancelled “until [he is] ready to return back to the decks.” In his career Tenaglia has racked up “over one million miles in the sky” and filled up three passports, but he simply wants to make some life changes and now seems to best time for him to do it. We wish Danny the best in all his future endeavors and will do our best to be there for his farewell show at the end of April. Read the full text of his message after the break.
Tickets for Electric Daisy Carnival New York are on sale again today at 12 Noon EST. Earlier this week, Pacha NYC and Insomniac Events announced the addition of a third day, and the tickets officially go on sale today. EDC NY is the first EDM event to take over MetLife stadium, and will be going down May 18, 19, and 20th. To purchase tickets, check the link below.
It’s the first Electric Daisy Carnival to hit the Northeast ever and it isn’t technically even in New York, but EDC NY is already bigger than originally planned. Pacha NYC has just announced that the event will now be taking place over three days — just like Ultra Music Festival — instead of the originally planned two. It all goes down May 18, 19, and 20th at MetLife Stadium — and as if that wasn’t good enough, there’s a new crop of tickets up for sale to go along with the additional day. The next round will go on sale Thursday April 12 at 12 noon ET to the general public. However, those who have already purchased 2-day passes will be able to buy passes for the additional day starting on Wednesday — one day before everyone else. (Pacha NYC will be emailing those eligible with further details.) For the complete announcement, keep reading below.
Our friends at Pacha NYC have been gracious enough to offer our readers the opportunity to attend not one of their many events going on in Miami next week but two. We’ve got a pair of tickets to the Kings of Ace Pool Party at the National Hotel on Wednesday, where you’ll be able to listen to R3hab and Bassjackers, along with scoring a meet and greet with the ladies of Nervo. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also giving away the same tickets and meet and greet opportunity for Sunday at the Spin Artist Agency Showcase, where Arty, Swanky Tunes, and Rebecca and Fiona will be providing the day’s soundtrack. Entry information can be found below, and we’ll be contacting winners on Monday.
Wednesday March 21 – Kings of Ace Pool Party @ National Hotel – Purchase Tickets
Sunday March 25 – Spin Artist Agency Showcase @ National Hotel – Purchase Tickets
When we first broke the news of an EDC in NYC it was nothing more than a rumor, a few days later our dreams became a reality when the dates were officially announced by Pacha NYC and Insomniac. It’s hard to believe that in 3 hours tickets will officially go on sale. There is still no set line-up (although there have been some rumblings about Kaskade headlining one of the two days) but Pasquale Rotella was kind enough to tweet out ticket costs and they are surprisingly reasonable for an event that will prove to be the biggest thing to happen to the dance music scene in NYC since the Swedish House Mafia took over MSG. This is going to be historic.
May 19 – 20th at MetLife Stadium
$147 for a 2 day pass, $99 for a single day, $322 for a VIP 2 day pass, and $171 for a single day VIP.
Don’t fall victim to greedy scalpers and be sure you are ready at 3pm to grab your tickets, this one is destined to sell out.
It’s officially official. Electric Daisy Carnival is coming to New York through a partnership between Insomniac Events and Pacha NYC. Billboard was first to break the news, though it does not provide a venue or lineup information. (We may be able to help you with those, however.) According to Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s CEO and founder, “I’m really excited to be working with Pacha to bring our touring experience of Electric Daisy Carnival to New York. The entire Insomniac staff is looking forward to this upcoming EDC weekend on the East Coast.”
