Pacha knows how to kick things off right by getting everyone “Maximal Crazy” with the one and only, Tiësto! When this party was first announced, I think everyone said the same thing– “NO WAY!” Tiësto at Pacha is going to be incredible! This Wednesday night party is sure to have everyone calling out of work on Thursday due to ringing ears, among other things. I was fortunate to have seen Tiësto for the first time earlier this year in Atlantic City, then again at Electric Zoo, and this will be my third show. His sets are always different and feature mostly new house tracks, an amazing light show with videos that go along with the music, and crowd-pleasing Tiësto tracks and remixes all night long. Wear your best dancing shoes and bring your “Work Hard, Play Hard” attitude. This will be an unforgettable night!
Opening set by Felix Cartal. This show is 19+ and tickets are available here.
Loco Dice – 12/2
Pacha will go loco when Loco Dice comes to celebrate the anniversary on Friday night. According to his website, his sets are, “spontaneous orchestrations fueled by the nuances of a night/venue/crowd.” I’ve never seen him live, but friends tell me he’s great so I’m looking forward to this party. He has hip-hop roots, but is making his mark on the house music scene. Get ready to roll the dice for a night of minimal and deep house music.
This show is 19+ and tickets are available here.
Martin Solveig, Hardwell, Quintino & R3hab, Adrian Lux – 12/3
This party should be called the “filthy five” because I don’t know how it is humanly possible for Pacha to put these incredible five guys together on one night, but they’ve done it and we’re ready for it! After Hardwell completely destroyed us at the Red Bull stage at E-zoo two months ago, everyone has been dying for his return to NYC. And I’m pretty sure we’re all looking forward to saying “Hello” to Martin Solveig again after his visit to E-zoo also. After his Pacha NYC debut in September, it’s a treat to have R3hab back to battle Quintino. Expect to hear his ‘epic’ remix of “Maximal Crazy”, among others. Make sure to get there early so you don’t miss “Teenage Crime” in the opening set by Adrian Lux. We’ll all need a day of ‘rehab’ after this party for sure!

Fedde Le Grand & Deniz Koyu- 12/9
When Fedde came to Pacha back in June for his USA Takeover Tour, he dropped “Tung!” by Deniz Koyu way before it was released and our faces nearly melted off when we heard it. So when Pacha announced these two artists would be together in one night, I instantly heard those loud horns blaring… bum bum bum, BA BA, bum bum bum, BUH DAA DAA, BUH DAA DAA (that’s “Tung!” in case you haven’t figured that out). We’re guaranteed to hear a lot of bangers on this night, as well as other Fedde favorites like his more recent #1 progressive anthem, “So Much Love”, as well as the deep and techy “Metrum”. I am also really looking forward to hearing “Hydra” by Koyu, and seeing him live for the first time.
Fedde Le Grand & Friends with more artists TBA. This show is 19+ and tickets are available here.
Erick Morillo – 12/10
Pacha’s anniversary celebration wouldn’t be complete without the Chairman of the Board, Mr. Erick Morillo. He took a trip down to the Jersey shore this summer and we saw him at Surf Club in early August. If you want to hear a set that goes on for hours, Morillo is the man to deliver! You’ll hear a ton of newer tracks and some by lesser known house artists that will make you take out your camera and record a clip (because we all know Shazam doesn’t work). His set seems endless, and his energy in the booth is infectious. The Chairman never disappoints and you’ll be “Dancin” all night!
Erick Morillo & Friends with more artists TBA. This show is 21+ and tickets are available here.
Roger Sanchez – 12/17
New York native and Grammy Award winner, Roger Sanchez will wind down the anniversary celebrations on December 17th. The S-Man will be playing along with more names to be announced. Whether it’s an upbeat electro track, or a drum pounding tribal beat, Sanchez always gets the crowd going. His latest release of “Animalz”, already supported by some of the biggest DJ’s around, marked the official return of Sanchez. Some of his well-known tracks such as “Another Chance”, “Lost” featuring Lisa Pure and “Turn On The Music” featuring GTO will be expected to be played on full blast this night. Come out to this event and “Release Yourself” with some great music and a magnificent way to end this three-week celebration!
Guest TBA. This show is 21+ and tickets are available here.
WHO WILL BE THE “ONE FOR GOOD LUCK”? Stay tuned for the big announcement from our friends at Pacha NYC. See you on the dance floor!
