For 10 years, it was the home of the New York-style 24-plus-hour marathon; where Electronic Music tested its chops and earned its stripes; where stars were born and fans were converted. This January, Pacha New York is closing its doors for good.
This is very sad news for the end of the year 2015 which was already very bitter for the world of electronic music. And now – Cherry on the cake – it also disappears, with the announced closure of the legendary Pacha New York. Eddie Dean state on Pacha’s NYC blog :
“The average nightclub lasts 18 months–we lasted 120, It’s been a wild ride that none of us will ever forget. Our final parties will celebrate the different artists, styles, and scenes that have made Pacha great.” – Eddie Dean, Pacha New York’s president
On December 12, the Pacha team will bring out Erick Morillo, its founding resident DJ, for the official tenth anniversary party celebrating the decade-long tenure the best way they know how: by partying. Other artists booked for the month-long swan song include Puff Daddy, Carnage, Dirty South, and Markus Schulz, and will end out with a 72-hour New Year’s Eve music marathon featuring nightlife staple Jonathan Peters.
This year also saw the club host the “House of Rob” tribute for New York nightlife don Rob Fernandez, who died in July. Many of the DJs who Fernandez believed in as Pacha’s music director played on the night, including Kaskade, Kenny Dope, Chris Liebing, Erick Morillo, and Laidback Luke.
