Global party series and all-around force to be reckoned with, HYTE, returns to NYC on July 2nd for the second installment of Independence Day Weekend celebrations. After an almighty indoor/outdoor Brooklyn warehouse party in 2016, this year HYTE will be stationed in a never-before-used location on Governors Island. With panoramic views of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, this isolated island provides the perfect sanctuary for a two stage, day and night party of epic proportions.

And this year HYTE brings the heat like never before with a who’s who of house and techno heavyweights; Stage 1 will host the techno grandmaster Richie Hawtin himself, house music aficionado Maceo Plex and Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann. Along with minimalist analog grooves by Rødhåd, the stage will also house veteran rhythm controller Matrixxman and the unparalleled military chief of dance, Julia Govor. Stage 2 will see the synthesis of Chris Liebing and Speedy J’s electronic music project, Collabs, along with sets from HYTE regular and Desolat boss Loco Dice, and top notch selectors Maya Jane Coles and Jackmaster. Up-and-coming groove maestro Peggy Gou and more local acts are set to perform as well; ensuring a memorable occasion of impolite melodies and a lit up dancefloor.
