We teased you a few days back about the upcoming series of events in New York dubbed Cosmic Opera. Well, we were actually teased too since we didn’t know much about the happenings. The only thing we knew is that the folks behind the event were promising to deliver an “extrasensory dance event” that’s going to change the landscape of dance music forever. Talk about a loft statement. It got our attention, tho. Anywho... they dropped the curtain a bit today—the inaugural headliner (and partner in production) is none other than Swedish House Mafia member and EDM icon, Axwell.
It’s all going down at New York City’s historic Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday, February 24. Advanced tickets go on sale next week, Tuesday, January 17 at 10 am EST. General tickets go on sale Wednesday, January 18 at 10am EST. We’re not sure as of yet about Axwell’s supporting acts for the night—we’re told they will span a variety of genres.
When I was formulating the idea for Cosmic Opera, finding the right venue was one of the most important decisions I needed to make. Hammersteins legendary history of iconic performances and profound architecture gave me much of the inspiration for the vision of Cosmic Opera. When I first walked in to discuss the idea, I immediately knew it would be the perfect home for this event series. –Justin Cohen, Founder & Creator of Cosmic Opera
