Just steps away from the Financial District, Pier 17 at the Seaport District NYC is snugly located close to The World Trade Center and also Wall Street. This makes sure the audiences it draws are diverse and eclectic, from tourists to the financial mavens of Wall Street. While the Seaport District is drenched in history, the re-launch of Pier 17 along with its rooftop featuring top of the line art and technology to the culinary goodness on offer, has been a game changer.
Five stories high, with stunning views of The Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State building and NYC skyline views from your dreams, the Rooftop at Pier 17 is a 1.5-acre outdoor space. The space offers food trucks, VIP cabana lounges, and an opportunity to watch some of your favorite artists in a cozy yet comfortable setting. Optimizing the use of this stunning space for live events by way of the Concerts Series programmed in partnership with Live Nation, there are a number of noteworthy acts making their way here.
What kicked off the Concert Series in grand fashion was a free community concert by Jon Batiste and the Dap-Kings on July 28! Through the summer, the series saw performances by some of music and comedy's best! From Kings of Leon to Amy Schumer and Trevor Noah!
With music programming to fit a number of musical tastes, the series will continue to play out through the Fall. Featuring acts like deadmau5 and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to Sting & Shaggy , we really meant the mix was eclectic when we said it! Find the full list of acts taking to the stunning venue later this year here.
In addition to its breathtaking views, the Seaport District collaborated with Alexander Green and Symmetry Labs to create a groundbreaking stage design called “Dematerialized.” The innovative design is made up of 400 individual cube elements comprised of 150,000 controllable LEDS controlled by Symmetry Labs’ patented volumetric lighting software. It’s the first stage design to use volumetrically mapped LEDs: every single LED has its 3D position precisely measured through computer vision.
On September 8th, deadmau5 is bringing his stunning Cube 2.1 setup to the Rooftop at Pier 17 along with music from his latest mau5ville: level 1 which released this July and hopefully a host of new music with the rumored release of level 2 not too far from release! For anyone who has experienced a deadmau5 show live, we know its an audio-visual spectacle in itself, but what we can't wait to experience is how the spectacular setting of The Rooftop at Pier 17 is only merely going to elevate this very experience to a new level!
