Green Velvet Presents La La Land at The Brooklyn Mirage
New York’s premier open-air venue continues to light up the summer with a slew of dope events. Brooklyn Mirage is enlisting the talents of Chicago icon and house hero Green Velvet as he brings The Big Apple to La La Land. The highly anticipated NYC debut will take place at The Brooklyn Mirage on Friday, August 3. Tapping into a stacked lineup featuring the La La Land mastermind Green Velvet, special guest Carl Craig, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ Set), Prok & Fitch and many more, fans can look forward to impeccable house music along with stellar audio and production synonymous with one of New York’s most impressive venues.
Emerging on the Chicago house scene nearly 30 years ago, Green Velvet has gone on to become one of the most well-respected names in underground electronic music. With over 20 years of releases under his belt, the Relief Records frontman still keeps things fresh in 2018 with pulsing singles like “Pez,” on his own imprint in July. Detroit techno legend and Planet E Communications label head Carl Craig, who shared his intricate electronic-classical album Versus in 2017, will join Green Velvet for a special guest appearance along with British sensation Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs with his only announced US performance for the rest of the year. Rounding out the lineup are UK house duo and Toolroom Records signees Prok & Fitch, longtime Green Velvet collaborator and Chicago house queen DAJAE, and Brooklyn’s own JDH & Dave P of the duo FIXED.
Although La La Land debuted just this year at Holy Ship!, the roots of the series traces back to 2001 when Green Velvet released his classic single, “La La Land.” The party-centric track goes hand-in-hand with the fun-loving vibe of La La Land. With the series already touching down at Miami Music Week, EDC Las Vegas and Electric Forest in addition to its Holy Ship! debut, New Yorkers can look forward to an evening of non-stop dancing augmented by bubbles, balloons, and stunning visuals.
“I am so excited to be bringing La La Land to NYC because it is one of my favorite cities in the world. Celebrating its diversity of culture, music, and fans is what La La Land is all about. And bringing it to the iconic Brooklyn Mirage is nothing short of awesome!”
