Giant Step Takeover Weekend Kicks Off Tonight – Fri, 6/24 – Mon, 6/27

Summer is finally here and we are ready to rumble! With 6 events over 3 days, Giant Step is taking over New York City this weekend. Featuring performances by Thievery Corporation, Raphael Saadiq, Katy B, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Fitz & The Tantrums, KING, Louie Vega, Pucho Brown & His Latin Soul Brothers, and so many more, whatever you are in the mood for, we got it for you.

Tonight, at Williamsburg Waterfront, Thievery Corporation takes the stage with special guests Raphael Saadiq, Dam-Funk & Master Blazter. Doors open at 5:30pm and show starts at 6:15 come rain or shine.

Tomorrow, Saturday June 25th, Giant Step’s annual party at SummerStage, Central Park marks the official start of summer for us featuring Lee Fields & The Expressions, Fitz & The Tantrums, KING, and DJ Rich Medina. Doors open at 3pm, and show starts at 4pm. This is pure fun in the sun, so come out and bring the kids too!

After recouping from all the sun and fun at SummerStage, make your way over to FOUR at YOTEL New York for the SummerStage after-party, and the first event in our YOTEL New York Weekender series (yes more of this goodness to come every month until the end of November). Music will be provided by Louie Vega, and live performances by Anané and Josh Milan, this party kicks off at 10pm and will keep bumping as long as you do. We are keeping the list open until the last possible minute for this event so tell all your friends, and tell them to bring all their friends too!

Sunday Brunch in New York is practically an official institution at this point in the game. As part of our YOTEL Weekender we invite you to make reservations for this all you can eat brunch at Dohyo at YOTEL New York that will feature music by DJ Bobbito Garcia, and live performances by Pucho and His Latin Soul Brothers. After the brunch is over (4pm) head on upstairs to the Terrace at YOTEL to get down to the sounds of Libation with DJ Ian Friday, Manchildblack, and Afro Mosaic Soul.

Just because its Monday doesn’t mean the weekend is over. Giant Step and Steve Madden Music want to introduce you to a fresh new face from across the big pond, and we promise it will be worth the outing on a school night. Get ready to meet London’s latest dubstep sensation, Katy B, in an intimate stripped down performance with special guest DJ Dhundee behind the DJ booth. Since the event will be at Le Bain, The Standard New York, don’t forget to bring your bathing suite.
