We’ve got a top tier lineup in store with our first headliner being the one and only DJ SPREE performing on a Function One Soundsystem.
They will be manifesting 3 unique themed rooms of top quality artists at The Brooklyn Bazaar for you to explore with a heavy focus on art, deco, visuals, lasers and unique activities. We’ve got a year of cucaws and we’re using them ALL. -2k

+ + + THE SAGA CONTINUES + + +
Long ago in a distant rave, Mainstream EDM, the shape shifting master of conformity, unleashed an unspeakable lameness into the rave scene. When all hope seemed lost honorable samurai promoters wielding a magic lineup stepped forth to oppose them. Before the final beat was struck, the villains tore open a portal in time and flung the samurai into the future where their lameness is law. Now the dancefloor warriors seek to return to the old school and undo the evil that is the Mainstream.
