Taking NYC's underground by storm, Verboten's first StageONE summer music series already looks like a scorcher with one of the most anticipated July 4 parties. Kicking off the epicness, heavyweights Sasha, Guy Gerber, Maya Jane Coles, Davide Squillace and Bill Patrick are in charge of energizing the waterfront dance fest in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Sasha’s acclaimed 'Never Say Never' party has earned its rep by giving the people what they want, "beautiful music in beautiful locations," and the Verboten team is going all out with a custom designed D&B surround sound system, high tech lights and video projection by Waking Dream and state-of-the-art production by Mad Dog Presents and Highline Ballroom.
In 2012, Verboten was voted ‘Best Party’ in Time Out New York, ‘Best Promoter’ in Paper magazine, and nominated for ‘Best Event Promoter’ in 2013′s International Dance Music awards. The StageONE summer series features upcoming international DJ acts Luciano, Carl Craig, Moodyman and Agoria on the July 27 lineup.
StageONE also is setting up a photo booth by fave photog, Nicky Digital, awesome outdoor games like Giant Twister and Giant Jenga, select food vendors and special performers. Oh yeah, be sure to check out the Provocateur-hosted VIP section with priority entry, prime viewing, couch seating and a full bar.
