Paul van Dyk returns to NYC, plays at Pier 54 Aug. 16
Edited Press Release
For five consecutive years Paul van Dyk's
annual concerts in Central Park have been one of New York City's most
anticipated live music events. In 2007, over 10,000 loyal fans from
around the world descended upon New York City with the sole purpose of
experiencing their favorite artist in this surreal environment. 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.
For the first
time ever in New York City, Paul van Dyk's four-hour live set is to be
accompanied by a full sound system installation engineered specifically
for this event by acclaimed sound design company Integral Sound. Fans
in attendance at Pier 54 will enjoy Paul van Dyk's music in its purest
form and at an unmatched level of clarity.
Historically, Pier 54 was considered one of New York's key launching
spots for ocean liners and it even provided a point of origin for the
Lusitania's first voyage. 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!
