Daylight Disco Returns for a Third Season Starting 5/19 at Cerise Rooftop [Chicago]
Summertime in Chicago is full of street festivals, farmer’s markets, and daytime parties. Some of the best parties are the ones we least expect. The folks at React Presents and Effen Vodka are coming together for the third year of Daylight Disco, one of Chicago’s best-kept secrets. However, with the lineup this year, the secret won’t be kept very long. This year’s daytime rooftop party is sure to bring joy to each month over the summer. This year’s lineup is bigger and better than ever with some of the most versatile and unique DJs from around the world. Cerise Rooftop Bar and Nightclub welcome The Knocks, Bakermat, Nancy Whang, Neon Indian, and Colette & DJ Heather AKA The Second City Sessions for this year’s monthly event.
The Knocks made a name for themselves in recent years producing for some of the biggest names in music. This year they plan to release their second album featuring collaborations with Foster The People, Sofi Tukker, Method Man, and more. They kick off this year’s event series on Saturday 5/19. Coming to Cerise on 6/16 is Dutch DJ Bakermat, who has been hibernating and creating a “shit ton of new music” ready to premiere on the rooftop. In addition, July’s artist is LCD Soundsystem vocalist, keyboardist & co-founder Nancy Whang. This special DJ set is one to catch 7/14. August welcomes chillwave superstar Neon Indian for a rare DJ set everyone must catch on 8/18. Last but not least, September brings the party back to the locals with a B2B set from Chicago natives Colette & DJ Heather.
