In a world of sold-out after parties, world-class artists, and venue takeovers that are nothing like you have ever seen, it is safe to say The Brooklyn Mirage is the king of them all. They made us all see and accept that at its fifth season of live music programming earlier this year.
However, shortly after, The Brooklyn Mirage announced its full venue redesign. These redesign plans are enhanced by a 200 feet long and 30 feet high 15k resolution video wall, an upgraded VIP area, a 100-foot custom-built stage roof, enhanced viewing from elevated catwalks, and increased food and beverage options. The redesign is done, and The Brooklyn Mirage is set to have its biggest season-closing series.
What it’s all about
The Brooklyn Mirage, located in the 80,000-foot complex known as Avant Gardner, has announced its season-closing programming to run for three weeks. This year, there are a few major surprises.
One of those is a two-day edition of Cityfox: Transcend Festival which is the first of its kind. The Transcend Festival opens season-closing series beginning on the 1st – 2nd of October. This festival promises a mix of DJs, best-of-live sets, and Brooklyn Mirage debuts.
The 2-day festival will also feature four other stage hosts plus Cityfox – Desert Hearts, Gray Area, Higher Level, and Sunday School.
Performances from Ben Böhmer (live), Henrik Schwarz (live), and Mikey Lion will take over four venue stages (The Brooklyn Mirage, The Great Hall, Kings Hall, and The Village) in 20 hours of live music.
Other events feature will also feature performances from SG Lewis, John Summit, rock band Turnstile, Purple Disco Machine, and Grammy award winner Black Coffee.
What to expect
Cityfox and The Brooklyn Mirage are coming in with the biggest energy, starting strong with Cityfox’s first ever 2-day festival, “Transcend,” featuring 20-plus hours of nonstop upbeat music. On festival day one, it’s a total venue takeover for The Brooklyn Mirage, The Village, Great Hall, and Kings Hall, and festivities continue on day two.
October 3rd is all for the rockers as Turnstile brings their a-game to their first stop on their North American tour. October 7th is the debut of SG Lewis’ disco-inspired live show.
Weekends are for parties, and it will be on a whole new level with DJ John Summit making his debut at The Brooklyn Mirage for his Off the Grid Showcase.
The party continues disco style on the 9th with German disco Purple Disco Machine and live improvisation artist Marc Rebillet on the 11th.
