It was a very good year. Two coasts. Fourteen nights of dancing. Six different DJs, six Float Planners, four photographers, two drivers, and many more donating their time and energy. And nearly three hundred beautiful amazing fantastic Floaters. We met lots of brave as hell Float Virgins, and so many of you have come back time and again. We couldn't be more grateful to you. You are Float. You really are....

What The Float
We're collaborating with Forward Flux Float in Seattle again this summer! Grab your tickets for June 24 in Capitol Hill and July 30 in Ballard!
Fall For Float, our 25th (!) NYC Float is over and done with. Incredible effort and results from first-time DJ/route-planner/Float-leader EXTRAORDINAIRE, Daniel Seth aka Floatstradamus. Some of Adam Wamsley's sick pics are already up. More to come on Instagram and facebook.
New borough, new jams: October 17. Village Halloween Parade, October 31. Then the long, cold, Float-less winter.
In the meantime, here's some tracklists for ya.........
Hope you're as excited as we are! We'll see you tomorrow, starting at 9:00pm at The Irish American Pub at 17 John St. near the Fulton ST. 2345ACJZ subway stop. When you arrive, head over to the glowing table, where we'll get you checked in and decked out in your own glow wear! Once you glow, you'll be entitled to the What The Float drink specials at the bar. Mobile FLOATCHECK will be waiting nearby and will follow us throughout the night.
if you don't have tickets yet, you can get them at the door for $25 or save $5 and...
At 10:00pm we'll step outside and UNLEASH THE POWER OF THE FLOAT. At roughly 11:00 and 12:00, we'll be taking short bar/bathroom breaks, and you'll once again have easy access to your checked belongings. At about 1:00am, the night's festivities will conclude, but you're welcome to join us at one final bar to cool down from your adventure.
We highly recommend downloading the three mixes ahead of time and loading them onto to your mp3-playing devices. At the bottom of this email you will find download links. You can listen to the mixes from your personal device OR use our wireless receivers with either your own headphones or our wireless headsets.
If you choose to download the music in advance, DO NOT LISTEN TO IT YET! YOU WILL RUIN THE SPONTANEOUS VIRGINAL JOY OF THE FIRST TIME LISTENING EXPERIENCE. Seriously. Don't do it.
If you choose to use our receivers, please bring a credit card or $20 cash to hold as a deposit. (You aren't being charged, we just need to make sure you bring our stuff back).
FINALLY, A NOTE ON WARDROBE. Please, please, please wear shoes that will let you dance and jump and run. It's no fun if you're hobbling all night, so skip the heels and the strappy sandals, no matter how cure they are. The weather looks like it's gonna cooperate, but we'll be dancing outside, no matter what. FLOATCHECK will hang on to anything you don't feel like carrying or wearing. Also, please wear comfortable shoes.
See y'all at The Irish American Pub (17 John St. near the Fulton St. subway stop) THIS SATURDAY!
We'll be on site at 9:00pm, with drink specials, LED headsets for those who need them, and more glowing stuff than you can shake a stick at.
Music will be posted SO SOON YOU WON'T BELIEVE!
Get 'em while they're hot! Don't listen to them ahead of time though, or you'll ruin the spontaneous virginal joy of the first time listening experience. Seriously, don't do it.
See you tomorrow night at 9:00pm at The Four-Faced Liar (165 W. 4th St.)! Advance tickets still available here. Limited tickets will be available at the door as well.
