John Digweed, 45; DJ; London
“For New Yorkers, it’s pretty special. I wish we had something like this in London. I think what’s nice about it is that it’s during the summer with the ocean air, so this is kind of like Ibiza on your doorstep.”

“It's a getaway, almost. You don't feel like you’re in NYC. The palm trees are dripping with lights, water, movement, energy and culture. People come from all over to events like these. It's an interesting mix”

"Governor’s Island is always a special place. From the moment stepping on the ferry, you get an immediate adrenaline rush. I have been here since [the party] started and this has been the craziest scene. I’ve been coming here all summer. For Digweed and Tenaglia, this is the most packed it’s ever been.”

Juan Garcia
It’s a sick party. I can’t wait to hear Danny T’s beats at Governor’s Island. It’s amazing; I love the vibe and the people. I wait every year for this music festival and I love that everybody kind of knows each other; they all enjoy the music and the DJ. That’s what it’s all about—embracing the DJ.”

The scene: Made Event at Governors Beach Club

Feeling a bit suffocated in those dark and dank dance clubs? You can always come for air at Made Event’s summer island parties, just a short ferry ride away from the southern tip of Manhattan. A breezy outdoor space lined with lighted palm trees and plenty of picnic tables, Governors Beach Club boasts a sandy dance floor large enough for the thousands of party people who turned out to hear London superstar John Digweed, beloved vet Danny Tenaglia, Pleasurekraft and Sleepy & Boo.—Natalie Gavilanes
