Pacha is continuing its birthday celebrations with another huge show: Fedde Le Grand is coming to the NYC hotspot this Friday, and bringing incredible up-and-comer Deniz Koyu with him. Dancing Astronaut wants you to be a part of the fun, so we’re giving away another pair of VIP tickets… but we’re also throwing in a meet-and-greet with Fedde himself and a DA/Pacha prize pack. We know you want to be there when Fedde turns Pacha into “Paradise” and Deniz gets “Dangerous” behind the decks, so enter now! We’ll pick a winner on Thursday at 6pm EST.
Laidback Luke may have just played in NYC, but we’re already missing his high-energy, genre-bending sounds. Lucky for us, we won’t have to wait much longer to see him again in the Big Apple: Luke is spinning a special “Super You & Me” party at Pacha on New Year’s Eve. Sandro Silva and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano will open and, with a suggested “superhero” dress code, midnight champagne toast, and a 2012 countdown with Luke himself, we’re guessing things will get wild. Tickets are on sale now through ClubTickets – $54.43 gets you an early-bird GA ticket, while the $110 tickets include a 4-hour open bar.

The big room at Pacha can be an unforgiving place for newcomer DJs. It’s crowd, much like the city it calls home, is a mash of people from all walks of life. E-kiddies, house heads, businessmen, casual clubbers, and even the occasional bachelorette party all funnel into Pacha week after week after week. Sure, there may have been a portion of the crowd that was there to see Fadil El Ghoul, the Dutch producer known as R3HAB, but most of the people we spoke to had never heard of him. All that immediately changed the second that R3HAB descended into the DJ pit that overlooks the big room, cued up his first track, and brought New York’s largest night club to its knees.
Everything about Afrojack is larger than life: his music, his personality, and certainly his 6+ foot stature. His presence exudes energy, and if the sweat stains that appear on his trendy t-shirts are any indication, he’s definitely doing more than just pushing play when he gets behind the CDJs. He took over Pacha NYC this past Thursday, and the completely packed club was there for one thing and one thing only: to hear Afrojack music from the man himself. Well, we can tell you that he delivered, and he did it in a big way. Keep reading for the full breakdown… or don’t, and miss out on loads of awesome photos from the night.
Pacha has long been one of the names most synonymous with house music scene, but mostly for its iconic and legendary outpost on the “White Isle” of Ibiza. You don’t have to travel across the ocean to experience Pacha for yourself, as there are now 25 different Pachas worldwide — including one in New York City. With the EDM scene heating up in NY like Steve Angello when he gets a track request, the club has gone all out with an extensive lineup for the summer, including Avicii, Afrojack, and Dirty South. We were lucky enough to attend Dirty South this past Saturday, and had our passports been checked, we might’ve been mistaken the island of Manhattan for the island of Ibiza. Read past the break for a rundown of Dirty South’s epic set — and a whole lot of eye candy to make you wish you were there.
All DJs know: Podcasts are a great way to let your fans know you care. Free, extended sets with hot tracks and killer mixes, downloaded directly and automatically to your favorite music device? It’s like a diamond bracelet and a love letter in one.
For five years, PACHA NEW YORK has prided itself on compiling and hand-delivering all of that DJ love to you, the Pacha patron. Our diverse collection of podcasts has introduced you to new talent (Avicii, Chuckie), cozied you up to your favorite local jocks (Chriss Vargas, Mario Calegari), prepared you for big PACHA events (Jonathan Peters’ Halloween, Boris Classics), and clued you in to what your favorite superstar DJs are playing right now (Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta).
Can you get that from any other nightclub? We didn’t think so!
Now, Pacha is proud to mark its 100th podcast with a very special set from our own chairman of the board, ERICK MORILLO. Perfect for summertime, the mix features the walloping bass and singalong melodies that are the Subliminal signature, including timeless super-classics like Masters At Work’s “To Be In Love” and Ministers De-La-Funk’s “Believe.”
Watch this space as PACHA continues this new tradition, adding new podcasts regularly.

As if we needed any more reason to love Pacha, New York’s premier house hot spot is starting the New Year off in a big way. I’m talking Afrojack & Laidback Luke big..back to back this weekend! Pacha’s recent bookings have been nothing short of spectacular, with line-ups resembling that of DJ Mag’s Top 100. See photos from David Guetta’s set last month after the jump.
Both shows are sold out! Stay tuned for exclusive coverage and photos!
Pacha was in top form on Saturday night in anticipation of one of Sebastian Ingrosso’s consistently superb sets. The energy was palpable and electric . Never before had I seen the place so packed and ready to party. Even the secluded, safe, and oh-so-cozy VIP area saw people wrangling with each other just to get a glimpse of Swedish House Mafia’s most charismatic member. And charismatic he was, making quick use of the air horn in tandem with his opener, “Miami 2 Ibiza”. The rest, as they say, is history. The capacity crowd rocked out all night in what Ingrosso called “his best gig here by far”.
