New York, USA
A day-to-night takeover, Boiler Room Festival NYC featuring the city’s most vital artists, DJs and collectives–as well as special guest live performances and video installations. Intimate, raw & in-the-round.
The musically-diverse programme kicked off with two open-air live performances from critical rappers Dizzy Fae and Mick Jenkins, followed by a stacked lineup curated by Half Moon—the city’s most upfront radio station and hub—took us through till sunset.
Inside at night, the main room lined up a heady mix of emerging and established artists – including legends Ron Trent and Analog Soul alongside risers like Yasmine, Yung Neil, Bizzy Banks, and Polo Perks; each broadcast live and uncut to the world.
Meanwhile in room two, art collective Papi Juice and meme activists Patia’s Fantasy World presented a roster of artists, musicians and DJs from their spheres.
Elsewhere, Boiler Room’s film platform 4:3 collaborated with Rhizome – the not-for-profit arts organization that supports and provides a platform for new media art founded in New York in 1996 – to present a special one-off video installation.
