FOLD Festival NYC 2015

Dj Mag us partners with Nile Rodgers’ star-studded FOLD festival

Teaser 2015

Magazine to curate ‘the DJ Tent’ with artists: Autograf, Bad Royale, Cevin Fisher, EC Twins, Eric B, Greg Cerrone, GTA, Lea Luna, Lenno, Q-Tip, Slander, Thomas Gold, The Martinez Brothers and Ultra Naté.

Nile Rodgers’ star-studded FOLD (Freak Out Let’s Dance) Festival is the ticket of the summer. As an inaugural event, it’s pretty spectacular, hosting main stage talent that any music loving person born before the last millennium are ravenous about. Duran Duran, Beck, Pharrell, Keith Urban, CHIC and of course Nile himself, will all take the stage in the stunning vineyard setting of Martha Clara in Riverhead, NY. Adding to the mix, Nile has brought in DJ Mag US as partner on the DJ Tent, a showcase of the best and brightest in dance music today.

Nile has put a lot of love into the world and, where some see dollar signs, he sees musical notes. And his friend’s do too. They’re proud to be part of the festival and know it’s something incredibly special for fans and artists alike. He’s certainly not your typical promoter. Nile is bringing together his friends to create a space that that is organic and pure, nothing contrived –a jam full of magic is going to be had.

And so it stands to reason that Nile, the true dance music Godfather, would secure a place for today’s dance music artists to thrive. It’s exciting that music spawned from sparkly disco balls, bell bottom pants, and a few brilliantly timed cow bells has morphed into the industry of today. Yes, disco is dance music kids, and no matter what you’re into today, you have tie-dye, free love, and Nile’s funkified riffs to thank!

Nile has embraced dance music for so long that he is actively bridging the gap between yesterday and today. He is royalty in the world of music. Musicians and fans adore him because he is a true icon in the industry. But Nile is a true lover of today’s dance music too. So, who better to partner with then longtime friends at DJ Mag US to curate a proper electronic stage.

If you don’t like dancing to a variety of high quality music with the gorgeous Hamptons as backdrop, then go back to your backyard barbeque and test Pandora’s Nile Rodgers channel - as if that encompasses the unique nature of this first-ever gathering. I am honored to partner DJ Mag with FOLD Festival. We at DJ Mag live and breathe dance music … and Nile is our oxygen.

Poster 2015

The DJ Mag stage will feature an unfettered array of what is truly happening in dance music today, giving play to up and comers along with some established talents. The stage will showcase artists curated by DJ Mag and Nile himself, to offer a snapshot of talent that are making fans and industry excited at this very moment in time.

Talk about finger-on-the-pulse, if these two powerhouses vet you out, you better believe there is something substantial behind it!

The DJ Tent will feature talent from many genres, and an eclectic mix of music for your dancing pleasure. It’s not something that a commercial festival has ever done before, and it really shows the power of dance music on a linear timeline. What’s underground today is the pop of tomorrow. But the real fact is, deep down, music is music.

The first day I walked into a disco and heard a DJ play Donna Summer with two turntables, my life forever changed. The quality DJs we have playing FOLD, will change another life too!

Being able to cross-pollinize so many musical genres gives a festival the ability to create an environment where people can actually hear something new. If you like Keith Urban, you may not ever see Duran Duran. If you love Pharrell or CHIC, maybe you’d never choose to hear the Martinez Brothers. Record shops don’t exist anymore, and festivals have gone from one all-or-nothing stage to 5 or more. The Fold Festival gives people the opportunity to be part of something that is just about the music. You can still discover something. You can still be moved by music.

The DJ Tent is a throwback to the rave days, where artists will play extended sets to allow a picture to be painted in music. It’s not about hype or posturing, it’s just about music.

Come and enjoy yourself and leave your selfie stick at home. You should however, bring your dancing shoes.
