Soak in Sun and Beats this Summer on Governor's Island in NYC

Let’s be serious: there’s really nothing better than an outdoor dance party. From festivals to roof parties, summer in NYC has its fair share. But if you realllllly want to hit that sweet summer spot, Clubplanet suggests making several, several trips to Governor’s Island. This mini isle is but a stone’s throw from downtown Manhattan and is classically known for bike rides and low-key, easy breezy picnics, not DJ dance parties. Get ready kids, because this island is about to get turned the F out. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

This summer, Governor’s Island will be bringing your ears and your booty shorts the following...

June 30, 2012 - Dash Berlin f/ Tritonal Starting things off trance-y, Dash Berlin will be rocking with newer kids on the block Tritonal, a Texas duo who recently ripped the faces off of clubbers at EDC NYC (and no we do not mean that literally, i.e. with bath salts).

July 4, 2012 - Victor Calderone  The man. The legend. Victor Calderone is notorious for crowds of shirtless hard bodies. And what better occasion to whip your chest-hair back and forth than on the 4th....of July, that is? Don’t miss out this BYO red, white and blue body paint party.

July 7, 2012 - Alesso’s 21st bday party f/ Arty and Otto Knows Our fresh faced Alesso will be cracking his “first” bottle of champagne at this fete, celebrating his 21st birthday. He’ll be joined by fellow junior mastermind, Russia’s Arty. Needless to say these guys, joined by Otto Knows, will undoubtedly be bringing down the house.

July 14, 2012 - Juicy New York: Robbie Rivera, EDX, Sultan + Ned Shepard, Stefano Noferini  This bill is a nice mix of trance and house - like an EDM smoothie! Robbie Rivera is basically your house-y host, with Sultan + Ned Shepard bringing their talents to the trance table. Stefano Noferini will add techno flavor while EDX keeps thing going with his own up-beat style of beats.

August 4, 2012 - Gareth Emery This party advertises special guests and the only way to find out is by hopping on the ferry to see and hear for yourself! The flyer also has the David Lewis logo - a practical calling card for guaranteed party success. Gareth Emery has been blowing up lately, bringing crowds to their knees, begging for more.

August 11, 2012 - John Digweed/Danny Tenaglia Fore score and seven years ago...Well, less than that long ago our founding fathers of dance music turned some original tables. We couldn’t be more stoked to see this line-up at Governor’s Island. Mark our words (and our experience seeing these two at EDC Vegas): this show is NOT to be missed.  

August 12, 2012 - Thomas Gold  Make an investment in your EDM futures with Thomas Gold. This man with the midas DJ touch will be rounding out the summer series of Governor’s Island fetes. Thomas Gold has a flawless track record and continues to throw down wicked dance floor beats on club floors and in festival tents, alike.
