For most people summer Saturday’s mean sleeping in, unwinding, and relaxing from a busy week at work. But to us New York City electronic music heads, it simply means another Saturday to party all day on Governor’s Island. And while the temperature tomorrow may be one for the record books, don’t be deterred, because so will the party.
This Saturday will be like no other show at Governor’s Island. Why you ask? Because it’s not just a show, it’s a giant birthday celebration! That’s right, Alesso will be turning the big 2-1 on July 7th, and he wants to celebrate it with YOU. Already having been on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ List in 2011 and named an EDM artist to look-out for by MTV in 2012, it’s hard to believe he is only turning 21.
And joining him to get the party started will none other than Otto Knows and Arty! You may know Otto Knows from his hit track ‘Million Voices’ or from his newly released remix of Dada Life’s ‘Kick Out the Epic Motherfucker’. Regardless, you will not be disappointed the second this man takes the stage.
Arty will prove to be another fantastic addition to the birthday festivities. Since his first production back in 2009, Arty has continued to grow and gain recognition in the EDM world. Also featured in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ List both in 2010 and 2011, it’s exciting to see what he has next in store. And for more on Arty, check out what he had to say when TheBeatMill crew had a chance to sit down with him at Spring Awakening Music Festival here!
This event is SOLD OUT. So I suggest you hang on to the ticket you got, or start frantically searching for a friend to give you theirs. Because when Alesso turns 21 on an beautiful island in NYC, things are sure to get a little crazy.
But if you can’t make it over to the island never fear, because Arty and Alesso will be continuing the birthday celebrations late into the night with an after party at Pacha NYC. Tickets are still avaliable for this- so don’t miss out!
