Damian Lazarus works tirelessly to transform the modern party with Get Lost and Day Zero, fine tuning the medium to craft alternate realities that push the boundaries of celebration. Today he reveals the details and lineup for Get Lost’s NYC debut, a marathon two day event at Knockdown Center October 11-12, welcoming live acts and selectors at the forefront of underground electronic music.
Fostered as an intimate after-hours alternative amongst the growing commercialism of US dance music, the annually sold out Get Lost Miami has become one of the can’t miss moments of the year, with its global reach extending to sessions in Los Angeles, London, Mexico City as well as stage takeovers at festivals like Tomorrowland. Now the brand sets its sights on this long-awaited and highly anticipated New York edition to offer a unique experience in one of electronic music’s capitals.
Friday October 11 will see the debut of the Get Lost Live concept, an audio-visual experience aimed to redesign the way a live show is experienced. Presented in association with The Bowery Presents, attendees can expect the immersive theatrics that Lazarus’ events have become known for coupled with forward-thinking live performances by emotive Lebanese indie electronic group Mashrou Leila and the exceptional modern pop icon Kelsey Lu, alongside DJ sets from one of the most talked about duos of the moment: BEAUTIFUL SWIMMERS, and NYC’s alternative selector, WHITNEY FIERCE.
The party continues on October 12 with a sixteen hour multi-environment journey soundtracked by friends and family of the Crosstown Rebels movement. Get Lost’s signature outdoor celebration will open its doors at 2pm before another four areas open from 10pm for this not to be missed experience.
Bronx’s own Martinez Brothers will represent their city alongside Detroit techno legend CARL CRAIG, minimal German producer ROBAG WHRUME, the illustrious FELIX DA HOUSECAT and Belgrade’s of the moment star TIJANA T.
Crosstown and Rebellion’s diverse label roster will be on full display with performances from Ae:ther (Live), BRINA KNAUSS, DAVI, DENNEY, DJ THREE, FRANCESCA LOMBARDO, JOESKI, MAGIT CACOON, SERGE DEVANT, Tibi Dado and others. Of course it remains the party’s scion who’s sets remain the most celebrated within the Get Lost saga, with Lazarus’ enchanting sonics and revered catalogue acting as a guiding beacon of underground curation.
The unexpected has always been the true flagship of leading event, offering a sense of immersion that seems to bend time and alter realities. Through sunset and sunrise, Get Lost NYC will continue the series’ journey towards crafting the remarkable and evolving all definitions of rave.
