We’ve teamed up with Resident Advisor to present the New York installment of their global 24/7 event series. It’s a packed schedule of events — listening sessions, an all-night party, late-night film screenings, radio broadcasts and more — all going down over the course of just twenty-four hours. Check out what RA has to say:
2018 is the first full year since NYC repealed its prohibition-era Cabaret Law, which had long been an albatross hanging around the neck of the city’s nightlife communities.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. Here’s how it’s all going down:
When we start at 8pm, we’ll be presenting a special edition of Planetarium, Nowadays’ deep listening session. We’ve invited Maria Chavez and Josh Dunn, two of New York’s headiest selectors, to play sets interspersed with live piano performances from ambient/minimalist composer Bing & Ruth.
In order to make this portion of the night as special as it can be, we’re only selling a handful of tickets so that you can stretch out, lie on the floor and get totally lost in music. Bring pillows, blankets and sleeping bags to get totally stuck in. (Don’t worry–you can put them in coat check when the next portion of the evening begins.)
At 12am, we’ll pick up the blankets and launch into the proper club night, with three generations of New York DJs taking the reins–Stud1nt, Adam X and Fred P–for a trip to the deepest recesses of the dance floor until late morning.
OUTDOORS AT NIGHT
Meanwhile, Nowadays’ garden will host Elbin Reyes, Shawn Dub and DJ Voices, some of New York’s finest selectors, playing back yard barbecue jams, followed by a late-night silent film screening with a DJed soundtrack from Unscented DJ. The outdoors will be free and open to the public for this portion of the evening.
At 5am outdoors, we’ll host an ambient sunrise session with live sets from Umfang and Beta Librae and DJ sets from Fergus Clark and Love Letters.
DAYTIME SESSION WITH THE LOT RADIO
Starting at 10am outdoors, we’ll have a session with one of the most essential staples of today’s New York dance music community, The Lot Radio, featuring some of their all-start hosts – Llyodski, Darker Than Wax and Christine Renee. Whether it turns into a hang or a full on dance party, we’re ready, and whether or not you can make it to the event, you’ll be able to tune in to this portion of 24/7 online.
At 11am indoors, we’ll begin a special RA Exchange series of conversations with some of the key figures from the past fifty years of New York’s storied nightlife history.
Come 3PM, we’ll do what Nowadays does every Sunday – have an afternoon dance in the sunshine at Mister Sunday, the party helmed by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter.
HOW TICKETS WORK
Each ticket tier is timed. You’ll have access to every part of the event from the time listed on your ticket tier until the end of the event.
For example, if you purchase a Planetarium ticket, you can come in and out of Nowadays for the entirety of the event, from 8pm on Saturday until the end of Mister Sunday – so essentially you’re buying a ticket to the special Planetarium session plus the club night, the sunrise session, etc. If you purchase a Club Night ticket, you’ll have access from midnight Saturday until the end of Mister Sunday. If you purchase a Conversation ticket, you’ll have access to Nowadays from 11am Sunday until the end of Mister Sunday, and so on…
Re-entry is allowed throughout the twenty-four hours. Just make sure you don’t wash your stamp off if you head home for a rest in the middle.ach ticket tier allows you access the entire event from that point onwards. Re-entry will be permitted.
We’ll see ya out there.
