Jamie xx, Maya Jane Coles, Andhim and More Slated for Verboten's STageONE Festival, 8/23
Returning to the Brooklyn waterfront at 50 Kent Ave, Verboten's StageONE Festival presents the second edition of its top-notch four-event summer series on Sunday, August 23 with a first-rate lineup of talent, striking production of lighting and visuals, and its luscious menu of food and beverages. With his highly acclaimed debut solo album In Colour released earlier this summer, prolific beatmaker and producer Jamie xx joins Verboten resident Maya Jane Coles, a live set from Matador, German superhouse duo andhim, Ukrainian sensation Nastia, and Verboten mainstays Bedouin. The event is hosted by THUMP.
Supplying fuel for the dancefloor, Verboten's executive chef Chris McLaughlin offers a deliciously crafted menu of Tex-Mex favorites including chili dogs with queso fresco and tortilla crumbs, and a variation of carnitas, chicken, shrimp, and veggie tacos topped with mouthwatering options. Indulge in a champagne float by local ice cream company OddFellows, in addition to a variety of beer and wine options from the bar. Cool off with Gino's Italian Ices bringing their authentic recipe straight from Italy, or stay energized with help from Vita Coco's rejuvenating coconut water.
This edition of StageONE will also feature unique art installations by Brooklyn street artist Deter Ris, and brings back the hyper-surreal and otherworldly visions from Muffinhead Inc. in the form of interactive costumed performers. Delivering the best in production and visually stimulating imagery, StageONE's sound system is provided by D3 Audio, who bring the clearest, cleanest, quality sound.
Throughout the day, discover apps that are changing the approach to a night out with services such as Jukely and Flux. Take a break from the dancefloor and visit Ibiza Love Child's pop-up shop of imported clothing straight from the island of Ibiza, or play a game of Cornhole against fellow festivalgoers brought to you by Century 21.
Following the event, join the afterparty down the street at the Verboten club where Jamie xx will continue to play into the early morning hours and experience the highly anticipated US debut of Nocturnal Sunshine, Maya Jane Coles' bass-driven alter ego, as they're joined by bonus sets from andhim and Matador [live].
The series is produced with the support of New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA). Proceeds from the concert series will be used to help maintain, activate, and further develop the Park.
