Everything you need to know about this late-night party on the High Line

Written by

The High Line is breaking its curfew for one night only, and you certainly don't want to be the square that chooses Netflix over this late-night shindig. 

We told you last month that the elevated park will remain open past its usual 11pm closing time on Thursday, July 21, and now we have even more details about what you’ll see during that extra scandalous hour.

The event, organized by Friends of the High Line and dubbed “Up Late,” includes a series of live performances and plenty of surprises, including dancers, musicians and visual artists who will be decked out in jaw-dropping illuminating outfits—get your camera ready. 

Remember, this shindig is totally free, but make sure to arrive an hour early—the space will fill-up fast!

Here is the performance lineup, courtesy of Friends of the High Line:
