Paul Van Dyk Plays Pier 54

Paul Van Dyk Plays Pier 54

No vocalists. No grassy dance floors. No live percussion. No trees hosting laser projections overhead. No guests gracing the stage and pumping up the crowd.

But with an independent sound system, light show and the Hudson River breeze, Paul van Dyk’s performance on Pier 54 this Saturday will vie with the superstar DJ’s previous NYC summer shows.

The Made Event team, who are producing this year’s show and have steered past PvD events in Central Park, say they’ll lure as great and diverse a crowd as ever in 2008.

“We expect the crowd to be similar to what we’ve seen over the past five years,’ says Made’s Mike Bindra. “Paul’s loyal fans combined with international travelers and those just out for a nice dance on the water.”

During the five-hour set expect to see new LED video screens, a 30-Watt laser and (fingers crossed) shorter bathroom lines. “At Pier 54 we determine the number of bathrooms so that should not be an issue this year,” says Laura De Palma of Made.

In addition to improved facilities, better food should also be available via Two Boots, a new vendor to the show. And adding “green” to its boasting list, Made is powering the whole thing with biodiesel fuel (www.greenow.org).

“We wanted to offer something new and different to the fans,” says Bindra. While De Palma adds, “Paul feels a very special connection to the city. We are all excited about the change in venue, and we’re sure that Paul has been anticipating the event."

Following the Pier set, van Dyk will play an “Ibiza style” after-party at Webster Hall modeled after his “This DJ is F**king Crazy” events on the club-hub island. There, local artists Jason Jollins, Matt Darey and others will join him in entertaining the post-Pier crowd. “Electronic music fans who can’t get to Ibiza will have a taste of it right here at home,” says Bindra. “There won’t be palm trees and paella...it’s about the music.”
