RA's next New York party is a marathon, not a sprint. We've teamed up with Nowadays to book 24 hours of DJs, live sets, panel discussions and film screenings spread out across their indoor and outdoor spaces.
In July, we're heading to New York, where we'll be spending 24 hours at Nowadays, a multi-purpose space in Ridgewood, Queens, with high-spec sound and a beautiful back yard garden.
2018 is the first full year since NYC repealed its prohibition-era Cabaret Law, which had long been an albatross hanging around the neck of the city's nightlife communities. There is now a feeling of hopefulness and optimism as the city moves into an era where dancing is no longer regulated. To celebrate, we're teaming up with Nowadays and bringing together a host of artists to highlight the vibrant communities that make New York the amazing place for nightlife it is today – while also giving some nods to the city's vaunted past.
When we start at 8PM, we'll be presenting a special edition of PLANETARIUM, Nowadays' deep listening session. We’ve invited a pair of the New York's headiest DJs to play sets interspersed by live performances by one of the city's most exciting contemporary minimalist/ambient artists for a fully immersive experience. Bring pillows, blankets and sleeping bags, and get ready to get lost in music.
At 12AM, we'll pick up the blankets and launch into the proper CLUB NIGHT, with three generations of the most exciting names in New York nightlife taking the reins for a night of house, techno and plenty more besides. Meanwhile, the garden will host some of New York's finest selectors playing back yard barbecue jams, followed by a late-night film screening.
At 5AM, we'll move outside for an ambient SUNRISE set from two of New York's favorite producers and the world's premier digger of fourth world sounds.
At 11AM, we'll begin a series of CONVERSATIONS looking over New York's storied nightlife history, while outside we'll have an intimate HANG soundtracked by stars of the thriving local radio scene.
Come 3PM, we'll do what Nowadays does every Sunday – have an afternoon dance in the sunshine at the legendary MISTER SUNDAY.
Each ticket tier allows you access the entire event from that point onwards. Re-entry will be permitted.
