One of the most exciting summer yacht party cruises we’ve seen in New York in awhile is Deep Root Records upcoming yacht party series. The first yacht party will feature sets from some of NYC’s best artists. Deep Root Records’ own Francis Mercier will be on the decks playing his vocal and groove driven deep house set with label mate Dean Mickoski before their European Summer 2016 Tour. NYC Resident DJ, Stephen Jervis who has made guest appearances at Highline Ballroom, The DL Rooftop, and Bryant Park Hotel will also be playing – his performance on last year’s cruise can be streamed here. To finish off the night, MEMBA, one of NYC’s biggest artist collective, will be taking the reign deliver some of the most forward thinking music out there! Think Hip-Hop meets Flume and Kygo – stream some of their records “New York” and their performance at Deep Root Records Secret Showcase at Hudson Terrace which has been making some headway in the past few months.
The Deep Root Records yacht party takes place on Saturday, May 21 from 6-10pm. The yacht has a capacity of 300 people so purchase tickets to this event early, as there is a very likely possibility of them being sold out the day of the event. The yacht will be sailing around NYC’s downtown harbor right by the Brooklyn Bridge, The Statue of Liberty, and more; allowing guests to enjoy some of the most breathtaking views of Manhattan’s sunset. Not only will there be drinking all night, there will be dancing, and lots and lots of it!
There are only 300 tickets that will be available for the first yacht cruise. If you somehow miss your chance of getting tickets, there will be 3 more yacht parties which will feature some of NYC’s, San Diego’s, and Miami’s best DJs, so watch out for when tickets go live for those. Confirmed acts that will be playing during this year’s Yacht Series are Deep Root Records’POSSE, 1WayTKT, Dean Mickoski, and NYC’s Truth & Lies, MGM, & Marlon Ace. Deep Root Records will also be flying in some of San Diego’s’ best, with KAOS and ESCOBAR slated to make an appearance, and Miami’s Jeff Molner.
Book your tickets today here. Don’t miss out on one of the hottest parties of the season, in one of the greatest cities in the world. Last year 100 early bird tickets sold out within the first 2 days. The after party hasn’t been disclosed yet, but we already have a feeling that it’s going to sell out quick as well.
