New York City is home to one of the world’s most exciting and diverse electronic music scenes. Whether you are a fan of good old EDM, experimental electro or minimal, the city’s got you covered with its many musical events and social hubs for music lovers. Here’s a few spots for fans of electronic music.
Rough Trade: not only a record shop, but also a book store, a café, a bar and instrument shop, and more importantly, a concert venue that often hosts some of the best electronic music in the city. The Brooklyn venue is known to host many free events, so check back often.
Output: The Output club is probably Brooklyn's most famous hotspot for electronic music and not only. The venue hosts some of the most sought-after DJs and producers on a local as well as international level: you might also find yourself surprised by unannounced special guests and other treats. Admission fees range from free to reasonable, depending on the event.
Moma PS1: Not only a major art museum, but also home to some amazing parties in the heart of Manhattan. This is where electronic music jumps out of the club scene and becomes a multi-media experience for all senses.
Bossa Nova Civic Club: With an outstanding sound system and a consistently great line-up of artists and DJs, this club is quickly becoming a star on the rise in Brooklyn.
Marquee: this club is a classic venue for nightlife and electronic music in NYC. Known for its ample lounges and great DJ performances, the Marquee always attracts the most discerning crowds and it is making a huge comeback on the map of NY’s best nightlife.
