Six hours. The time it takes to get from the city to Canada. The time it takes your girlfriend to get ready. The time it takes for you to truly experience the legendary Paul Van Dyk.
Next Friday, July 1st, the Dance.Here.Now. Festival on Governor's Island kicks off your holiday weekend with a exclusive six-hour set by the Grammy-award winner. Better abbreviated as PVD, this artist has been at the forefront of electronic music production since the nineties. With dramatic ascensions and sentimental vocals, PVD brings a beautiful playfulness that is best saved for a summer night.
From 2003 to 2009 thousands of electronic music enthusiasts flocked to Central Park to groove to PVD in the open summer air (an enjoyable break from the dank, smoky club), however the past two years he has not been scheduled to play. Back in February, PVD shook up the New York dance scene at Terminal 5, where the old Exit provided the perfect backdrop for a set that received rave reviews, with fans eager for him to prove again why he’s been in the business so long.
Next week, you’ll again have the opportunity to witness this maestro move you on a musical journey a whole lot more scenic than the drive to Canada. (Just leave your glowsticks at home this time and let the Manhattan skyline do its magic.) And with six-hour long sets usually reserved for Gatecrasher, the Birmingham UK party where PVD became a resident in 1998, it’s a wonder how the slew of party throwers managed to pull off such a booking. Unfortunately, no one was available for comment... Guess they”ll let the single headliner speak for himself.
