Every year, NYC's Gay Pride festivities culminate with the massive Dance on the Pier, which draws thousands of revelers eager to continue the party after the NYC Pride March makes its way through the city. Today, Heritage of Pride (which produces all official New York City Pride events) announced that the DJs for the 28th incarnation of the dance will be international circuit spinner and remixer to the stars DJ Grind, and Italian native DJ Pagano, best known for his residencies in London's Heaven and Fabric boîtes.

The party will return to Pier 26, so celebrants will get a primo view of the sun setting over the Hudson, as well as the fireworks that fill the sky near the end of the dance. There's no word yet on performers, but in 2013, American institution Cher headlined the Dance on the Pier, along with gay-beloved singer Deborah Cox. Past Pride performers—many of whom were not announced in advance—include Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Whitney Houston. Unsurprisingly, the event tends to sell out, so don't dally: Get your tickets when they go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am—along with tix for the official Gay Pride Women's Dance, Teaze (formerly Rapture on the River), for which DJs and other details are still TBA.
