A brand-new concert series is surfacing at the Piers of New York City, with over 50 boat parties held in one city. Crust Nation presents the iBoatNYC Summer Concert Series hosted by Hornblower Cruises & Events

Teaming up with some of the best artists, labels, and brands in the dance music scene, the summer concert series has a killer event schedule built out, and each party promises to be a unique and exciting experience. The boat party festivities begin on May 3rd and will be sailing through September 15th with over 50 different incredible experiences to choose from.

The season’s kick off event, Croatia Squad presents Squad Goals, will be drifting through the Hudson River with his deeper house sounds and nu-disco style. Continuing the premier weekend are the underground sounds of the Rawthentic boat party, taking place on Saturday, May 4th. The label represents a contemporary take on the old-school house and techno sound. The Rawthentic boat party offers an array of talented artists such as Proudly People, AJ Christou, and techno titan Carl Lio. The month of May will also bring dark techno sounds by Noir, Ramiro Lopez, and Juliet Fox as well as more groovy electro house by Henry Fong and Disco Fries.
