Two festival weekends in a row and I’m still standing. Elements Lakewood helped me tap into that youthful energy that is oh so necessary during the summer party season. The good vibes I found in the Poconos kept me flying into Governors Ball, and well, there’s no sign of slowing down now! I’m slugging maca smoothies and cat napping like a pro this week. I hope you’re taking care of yourself, because we’ve got a lot of fun coming our way. I know you’re hitting Northside Festival, but if you still have energy to expel in between panels and after hours, here are some club sets you won’t want to miss.
1.) Flux Pavilion @ Output (Thursday, June 7th) – I Can’t Stop. It’s a song that rings especially true to my heart this week as I prepare for more shenanigans ahead. The creator of this timeless party anthem is Flux Pavilion, UK-based dubstep producer who is as cool as he is talented (check out our interview with him from Electric Zoo 2016). He’ll be going B2B with his friend Doctor P at festivals across the country, but you can catch him flying solo at Output tonight. Get tickets HERE.
2.) Good Looks Collective presents Goldfish (live) @ Output (Friday, June 8th) – South African house duo Goldfish will bring the sounds of summer to Output’s main room on Friday night! Their jazz-inspired instrumentals are sure to keep you dancing well into the morning hours. That said, you’ll want to arrive early because Good Looks Collective has curated a totally fire lineup. Local heroes AKKI and The Golden Pony will be kicking things off, and house producer Croatia Squad will also be in tow making this one of the most eclectic and exciting lineups we’ve seen on Wythe Ave. this season. Get tickets HERE.
3.) Dubfire (Classic House Set) @ The Roof (Saturday, June 9th) – Dubfire is no stranger to Brooklyn. The Armenian born, DC-based techno producer has played numerous headlining and open to close sets over the year at Output, The Mirage and others over the years. Though we’ve come to love Dubfire’s dark, drilling beats, our interest is piqued by this particular booking. Head to The Roof this Saturday afternoon for a glimpse of the lighter side of Dubfire when he delivers a classic house set that will send you soaring into sunset. This one’s going to be funky, no doubt. Get tickets HERE.

4.) Mayan Warrior (Art Car Debut) @ The Brooklyn Mirage (Saturday, June 9th) – Known for their exceptional displays and performances at Burning Man, Mayan Warrior will make their first east coast trip to the Brooklyn Mirage this Saturday. The Mexico City-based party brand has gained notoriety after years of bringing their jaw dropping art cars and unique production to Black Rock City. In this New York debut, the art car will deliver a true multi-sensory experience thanks to its 20 installed speakers, elaborate and towering lighting and decor featuring ancient sources of geometry, an RGB laser show, neon panels and more. Get tickets HERE.
5.) MADE EVENT presents Dim Mak Neighborhood @ The Brooklyn Mirage (Sunday, June 10th) – Bringing mainstream mayhem to the hood is EDM’s enviable Dim Mak label. Headed by industry superstar Steve Aoki, this mega-roster is quite unlike the typical house and techno events you’ll find at The Mirage. Names like Dada Life, Smokepurpp and Carnage share the bill, so prepare to dance til you drop as you’re bombarded with Top 40 favorites and the occasional flying cake. This is sure to be the ultimate Sunday funday! Get tickets HERE.
