The brainchild of Made Event, NYC's foremost electronic music promotion company, Paul van Dyk in Central Park has grown exponentially. From its inception in 2003 what began as a one time, late afternoon event has transformed into a two-day concert extravaganza. Paul van Dyk's incomparable DJ style ensures that no two concerts are ever the same due in part to his one-of-a-kind rig that has taken the art of DJing to an entirely new level.

Paul van Dyk received a Grammy nomination in 2005 for Best Dance/Electronic Album for his original album "Reflections" - this marked the first time NARAS recognized this category. His original productions from "Reflections" have been synced into major motion pictures such as Into the Blue, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, television's Entertainment Tonight and MTV's Cribs international ad campaigns for Motorola, HBO, Land Rover, and most recently for JEEP this spring. With over 3 million albums sold worldwide, van Dyk travels around the world over 16 times each year to sold out performances internationally.

Aside from his musical activity, Paul van Dyk has always dedicated a significant part of his life to politics and social justice: from his youth, when he fled over the Berlin Wall to the West, to his children's charity in India's Mumbai, and his partnership scheme with the German Red Cross to help poor children in Berlin. In 2004, van Dyk was the only electronic artist involved in a nationwide tour with the Rock The Vote campaign, where he joined the likes of Bono, P Diddy, the Black Eyed Peas and George Clinton in campaigning for America's youth to sign up to vote in the presidential election. He most recently received Berlin's Medal of Honor (Landesverdienstorden) in recognition of his work with Ruckenwind.
