On February 23rd, we're headed back to the West End Lounge, to co-produce another night of singing and dancing! At 7:00 a couple dozen mega-talented member of our community will take the stage to sing some of the highlights of last year's Float season, then at 10:00pm, an elite handful of DJs will serve three channels of the dance party realness you know and love. If you missed out on last year's tribute to Carly Rae Jepsen, this is your chance to see some of the superstars you didn't know you've been sleeping on.
Hi Los Angeles. We've missed you. Let's do this. It's FLOATING DANCE PARTY time. Culver City, here we come. Lions and tiger and bears, oh my! It’s off to The Emerald Float we go!
What's a “floating dance party”, you ask? It's kind of like a dance club, except without walls, borders, or limits. It's mind-expanding, heart-pumping, booty-shaking glory. It's all the best parts of dancing on your own or being part of a giant rave, with none of the downsides of either. It's FLOAT.
We'll meet at [TOP SECRET STARTING LOCATION TBA SOON] no later than 8:30pm for drinks and check-in, but from there we’ll explore the night and the city as the music inspires us, dancing through streets, plazas, parks, and more.
The music - mixed by Float Angel DJ Baby Oil Danger aka Jenny Leon and two brand new DJs making their Float debuts - will be piped directly into your brains via our GLOWING HEADPHONES.
To everyone else, we'll seem completely silent. All of Los Angeles will will become an endless surreal dancefloor, the mild-mannered will become fearless booty-shaking superstars, and the night will be ours. You will experience the streets of the city in entirely new ways. The power of the FLOAT will swell within you, and you’ll give yourself entirely to the dance in a way you never dreamed was possible.
HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO:
1. Buy a ticket! The first batch is just $15, but prices will rise as tickets sell!
2. RSVP YES, YESYESYES, or HELL YES. Pass the event on to EVERYONE you think deserves to be happy, at least for one night. Text your friends. Email them. Pester them face to face. This is the most important thing that will ever happen.
3. READY YOUR MINDS AND BODIES FOR THE EXPERIENCE. Please ready your minds and bodies responsibly. Stretch. Hydrate. Dress to move. WEAR COMFORTABLE MOTHERFLOATING SHOES so you can dance and run and jump and climb. This is not the time for cute heels or strappy sandals; you will regret them. Dress as fancy as you wanna. We’ll make you glow.
4. Meet us at the bar early, early, early for drinks and camaraderie! If you are late, you may, unfortunately, be left behind! We'll set you up with a pair of our glowing headphones.
5. At 9:00pm SHARP, we'll step outside, where the shared musical experience will swell within us, and the dance will lead us into the night. The adventure has begun.
The fine print:
All tickets are nonrefundable. Tickets are transferable to a different night/event until one week before Float or in the case of a weather-related cancellation. We Float rain or shine. Float is an age 21+ event.
We've spent most of our off-season on the Upper West Side, so we thought it was high time to give Brooklyn some love. We hope you'll slink on down to our secret subterranean silent disco. Bluebird Brooklyn has been so kind as to offer us their underground dance floor once again for another night of joyous silent disco abandon. Please join us (and some of your favorite Float DJs) on Friday, March 8th from 10:00pm-2:00am for three channels of no-holds-barred musical mayhem at Bluebird Brooklyn, 504 Flatbush Ave., near the Prospect Park B/Q/S subway stop.
What's a silent disco, you ask?
Well, we'll tell you! When you arrive, you'll see a whole horde of people dancing their butts off with headphones glowing blue, red, or green, but in complete silence. Each color receives perfectly synced live music from a different one of our DJs. Pretty immediately, you're gonna feel a little left out cause damn they're having a blast, so we'll set you up with your own pair of headphones (and grab your ID to hold onto until you bring 'em back at the end of the night), and you'll have complete and immediate control of which channel to listen to and how loud the music plays, just flipping a switch on your headphones. If you need a break, just pull off your headphones, and suddenly you can talk without having to scream your throat raw, just like that!
Okay, so what's What The Float?
It's us! You’re on our website! We're a both a team of highly varied creators and a warmly welcoming community of joyful fans. Our community boasts New Yorkers of all ages and from all walks of life. You'll find yourself getting down among some literal professional dancers side-by-side with lawyers and doctors who discovered they like being able to let loose and get a little weird, and everyone in between. In the warmer seasons, we're known for our "Floating Dance Parties". It's like silent disco, but we take the show on the road, leading you on a dance party that's also an adventure through dynamic spaces both world-famous and close-guardedly secret. Our Floating Dance Parties have woven their way through spaces as varied as Central Park, Penn Station, the Staten Island Ferry, SXSW, Santa Catalina, the back alleys of Beijing, and more. There's nothing quite like it in the world, and we hope you'll join us for one this summer as well!
