The Story - Backup
It's one of fire, of granite and gorgeous
nights. It's born from generations of
artists, of seekers, of fearless
creators - consummated in
the darkness, on dance
floors, in the kisses
You are invited to explore three distinct events, across a landscape
of music and performance within a location that is stunning,
historic, and unlike anything else in New York.
FRIDAY JULY SEVENTH

Our patrons and benefactors will experience The Plant, a hulking and gorgeous ruin on the edge of the Hudson River. This night will be an exploration of an incredible wonder, made live with intimate performance acts from The Night Circus, champagne, hors d'oeuvres and desserts by Dilara Erbay, and an exclusive music performance all within a never-before-experienced New York relic.
SATURDAY JULY EIGHTH
THIS IS A STORY OF ORCHIDS & ASHES
the exploration • the fever • the night
Saturday takes place at The Manor, a sprawling gothic mansion set on 33 acres of gardens that feel a world away from the City. You are invited to explore the theme of “orchids & ashes” built across the dozens of rooms, meadows, woods, and intimate music stages.
Performances are curated by The House of Yes, Caravan Gitane, Shanghai Mermaid, The Hobo Roadshow, The Birds Nest, Dina Nur, and Marc Dizon, along with the up-close and personal feats of The Night Circus.
SUNDAY JULY NINTH
THIS IS A STORY OF CHAMPAGNE AT SUNSET
THE sunshine • THE SPECTACLE • the closinG
Sunday begins in the meadows with Ecstatic Dance and The Get Down followed by the weekends headline music performance set against the sunset on the Hudson river and a closing set by Wolf + Lamb. Within the Manor explore the sounds of SEMA, knowledge and elixirs by Alchemist Kitchen, as well as hidden bars, artful food, performances and the secret spa.
We started off,
a dozen years ago,
throwing free renegade
events in the streets with
thousands of revelers, marching
bands & musicians, soundsystems
& fire spinners, cops & circus acts,
helicopters & coast guard boats,
subway trains turned to dance
parties, the night, the
water, the city
