Verboten is pleased to announce StageONE, a new summer music event series taking place outdoors on the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront. The series will kick off its inaugural event on the July 4 holiday with Sasha’s highly acclaimed Never Say Never party imported straight from Ibiza. Verboten, recognized leaders of the New York electronic underground, are bringing together all the best elements of a festival to StageONE. The outdoor stage will feature global DJ talent and cutting-edge production, along with artisanal foods, and entertainment to the shores of the East River all summer long.
StageONE’s inaugural event on July 4 will feature Sasha’s much lauded Never Say Never party. Created in Ibiza in 2010, the idea of Never Say Never is simple: it’s Sasha in his finest form, playing music that he loves, with DJ’s that inspire him. Never Say Never is a party for party people, with its focus set firmly on the dancefloor, and known for featuring exciting, forward-thinking guest artists. The Brooklyn edition will feature Supplement Facts boss Guy Gerber, who will be taking off for his newly appointed Pacha Ibiza residency Wisdom of the Glove for the summer season. Additional special guests include queen of the underground Maya Jane Coles, Italian tech house innovator Davide Squillace, and underground stalwart from Berlin Bill Patrick. The following edition of StageONE, to be held on July 27, will feature Cadenza Records label head honcho Luciano, global techno icon Carl Craig, and Detroit mainstay Moodymann. More dates to be announced!
StageONE is the perfect antidote to the dog days of summer. This reoccurring one-day massive event will bring a new set of world-class DJ talents all to one stage, so you can enjoy each one all day without missing a beat. Spend the day along the picturesque waterfront location with a selection of beer and wine, range of local food vendors, and exciting outdoor games to entertain you, along with unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline. For this unique series, Verboten will bring together a collective team of industry experts with production featuring high tech lights and video projection mapping provided byWaking Dream and a massive custom sound system.

Verboten is a leader in the New York underground dance music scene, booking, producing and promoting a number of deep house and techno parties at a variety of large clubs, boats, festival stages and music conferences. Verboten was started by Jen Schiffer and John Perez over ten years ago with the goal to bring much-needed high quality production, friendly customer service and the best international DJ talent to an eclectic crowd of discerning music fans. In 2012, Verboten was voted ‘Best Party’ in Time Out New York, ‘Best Promoter’ in Paper Magazine, and was nominated for ‘Best Event Promoter’ in 2013′sInternational Dance Music Awards. The word Verboten, German for “forbidden,” is a reference to all the fun New Yorkers weren’t supposed to be having in New York in years past. The parties’ re-occurring branding and custom visuals takes this satire a step further, depicting a crumbling, futuristic dystopian surveillance state where fun and dancing are completely outlawed. Music is Verboten, indeed.
