Secret NYC location will host nudity, alcohol, “being touched”… and Giorgio Moroder
by Kristian Brito
On September 9 & 10, an abandoned factory in Brooklyn will play host to a reimagined 70s nightclub experience called I FEEL LOVE, featuring performances from electrodisco visionary Giorgio Moroder, Studio 54 mainstay Nicky Siano, and contemporary dance acts Jackmaster, Oliver, Armand Van Helden, Kungs, and Soul Clap. Not much more information has been released about the mysterious event, including its secret Brooklyn location, but its ticket website offers an intriguing list of warnings:
I Feel Love isn't a typical event. We welcome all shapes and sizes, freaks, vagabonds and dancing darlings!
That being said, this experience isn't for everyone.
* Please be prepared that you should be comfortable standing, walking, climbing stairs, being touched, interacting with participants, or being alone.
* Throughout the experience you may be offered alcoholic beverages, if you do not wish to partake feel free to decline. Also note, this experience may include nudity.
* Exact venue location will be provided to attendees approximately two weeks before the event. Please note the event will be held in Brooklyn, NY close to major subway lines.
* We want you to have a special experience, here in our world, so please keep mobile phone usage to a minimum and taking photographs is strongly discouraged.
* Due to the unique nature of this event all guests are asked to arrive between 9pm and 11pm. Late entry will be accommodated at the discretion of I Feel Love staff.
According to a creative director Toby Benson, the I FEEL LOVE "was born out of a reaction to the homogeny that we are all currently feeling in dance music" and promises to be "an experience unlike anything in the current NYC club landscape." Tickets for both days are on sale (at your own risk), and you can check out a scintillating trailer (featuring, of course, Donna Summer and Moroder's epochal 1977 single of the same name) below. Also check out BV's recent interview with Moroder, in which he talked Skrillex, synthesizers, and his recent return to producing.
