America’s Best DJ: Double Duty in New York City

By  | 

New York — We spent a weekend under the stars in Denver, CO, but the America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented By Pioneer DJ & DJ Times is back home in the city that never sleeps.

This past weekend, we headed to the Mile-High City to party in the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre for Global Dance Festival 2015. The three-fest boasted over 50 artists, who performed on three different stages across the legendary venue. Six #ABDJ2015 nominees—Kaskade, Flosstradamus, Seven Lions, 3lau, Green Velvet, and Manufactured Superstars—were amongst this year’s lineup, joining the likes of Tiësto, Above & Beyond, and more at the packed festival.


As always, we held down a dedicated ABDJ booth to collect votes and give fans a chance to win a variety of amazing prizes (including a trip for two to San Diego for our official closing party on October 11 at Omnia San Diego and more gear from Pioneer DJ).

This weekend, we’re two-timing it in New York City with a pair of events tonight.

First, we’re off to Marquee New York for a night with our favorite married nominee pair: Sleepy & Boo. The duo is back from a trip to Ibiza and is armed with new productions—taken from recent EPs on Nervous and De-Noize Records—to rip into the Chelsea nightclub as part of their signature Sleepy & Boo + Friends event. If being nominated for #ABDJ2015 wasn’t enough reason to party, this night will serve as the official birthday celebration for Sleepy! Grab tickets here.

Gabriel & Dresden will spin some classics at Cielo tonight.

Just a few blocks down the road, we’ll also be on-site at Cielo to go on a trip down memory lane with Gabriel & Dresden. The pair will throw down a six-hour set consisting only of their favorite trance classics, which is sure to take attendees on a retrospective journey through the nominees’ artistic history. We chatted with the duo about the tour and the tracks always in their record crate here. Grab tickets here.

Two venues, one night. Come down, hit the dancefloor, and cast your vote for America’s Best DJ 2015!
