You know those amazing underground warehouse raves that are so cool because they are, well, illegal? BangOn! NYC has gone and made a legal one, renowned for its monthly parties in Brooklyn’s arty warehouse district Bushwick, that are beyond a DIY warehouse party and more on par with an indoor, all-night Burning Man situation. Each month all the details of the party, including the warehouse location, are kept secret until the day of, but each month you can rest assured that everything from the music to the lights to the activities and performances will not disappoint those searching for a monthly dose of crazy party vibes.
Secrets for New Year’s Eve however, be-gone, as we have the inside scoop on the theme and set-up for what is sure to be one of, if not the most epic NYE party in New York City. BangOn!’s NYE party is themed ‘Time and Space’, featuring a full visual and auditory experience including Burning Man style art installations, circus performers, food, dancing, the whole lot. Think Cirque De Soleil X all-night electronic rave. Things are going to get weird.
Mr. Hot Creations himself, Lee Foss, singer Anabel Englund, hip-hop beatsmiths Shiba San and Sweater Beats, Thriftworks, and Gladkill will deliver the electronic beats for the party sprinkled among Burning Man art cars, a flying saucer suspended 18 feet in the air for dancing on and an installation for 25 people to dance on, on a box truck chasis.
The state of the art live show on the night, featuring a huge holographic interface on the dance floor, will synchronize the frequency of the music, visuals and lights to create a synesthetic experience with sounds you can see and visuals you can hear.
If you’re headed to New York City these holidays, this is the party to be at over New Year for the ultimate, authentic warehouse party experience. WARNING: Not for the faint hearted.
