Last week we reported that Time Warp was facing backlash from Brooklyn residents who feared the Techno festival would cause a disturbance in their neighborhood. Festival organizers don't wish to disrupt the local community and have agreed to move the event to their 2014 location at the 39th Street Pier in Brooklyn. An official statement from Time Warp reads:
"As techno fans, we are members of a global community that celebrates inclusion and equality. That spirit manifests at the local level too. Out of respect to the community of Crown Heights, we have agreed to move Time Warp US 2015 from the Bedford Union Armory to the spectacular site of Time Warp US 2014, just 5 miles away."
Warehouse style events have been facing heavy scrutiny from officials after a Halloween event was shut down due to toxic chemicals being present at the site. Time Warp aimed to put on their event in a safe environment, but the community in the neighborhood had their concerns. With that being said, it looks like Techno will take over the 39th Street Pier once again with the industries leading figures to take us on a journey.
Time Warp will take place on November 20 and 21 at the new location of 81 39th Street, Brooklyn. Get your tickets here.
