This year, van Dyk (pictured left) and Made Event leave the friendly confines of Central Park and travel west to the famed Pier 54 for a waterside dance music extravaganza on August 16 that's never been experienced before.

To this day, Pier 54's breathtaking original steel arch entrance greets visitors to what has become one of the city's largest performance spaces.

Tickets for Paul van Dyk at Pier 54 are available in advance for $45 dollars per ticket from Ticketweb.com. In the coming weeks Made Event will reveal the very special surprises and themes associated with Paul van Dyk at Pier 54. It's something that no Paul van Dyk fan will want to miss!
