Ok, let’s get real. Its Independence Day weekend and here at Joonbug we take this holiday very, very, seriously. Our forefathers didn’t fight an entire revolution solely so we could live in freedom. No. They did it so each year we could properly commemorate our sovereignty and celebrate our liberty. And that is exactly what we are doing this weekend! Below are our favorite events to celebrate this 4th of July.
What is a 4th of July party without electro-beats? I’m sure our forefathers would be please with this, uh, “celebration.” Governor’s Island, in association with Cielo, Pacha and Glo Fridays, is hosting a four-day long party starting tomorrow July 1st until the 4th. The event kicks-off with a six-hour (six!) DJ-set by Paul VanDyk on Friday. Saturday will be all about Fat Boy Slim and James Zabiela. As the day gets closer, the acts get hotter. On Sunday Benni Bennassi and Laidback Luke will turn tables. On Monday, Brooklyn born DJ Victor Calderon will swap the (common? Unoriginal?) happy birthday song with some house and a lot of techno.
