Were you at the second installment of Hyte Park Festival this weekend? If not, you missed some serious techno madness.
The festival took over Governors Beach Club for two fine days of sun, sand, and techno. Saturday’s line-up included the legendary Loco Dice and tINI, but overall felt like the warm-up to Sunday’s line-up of Radio Slave, Nicole Moudaber, Pan-Pot, and Chris Liebing, just to name a few. The main stage boasted an excellent sound system for an outdoor festival and there was always ample space to dance. Attendees could also wander over to the smaller tent on the hill, where couches and hanging lanterns cast a sweet glow on the park in the evening and where Hector was a highlight of the night. Plus, nothing beats dancing your heart out to that spectacular view of lower Manhattan while the sun is setting.
With such great new music coming out of the speakers, we thought we’d make it easy for you and share our top 5 favorite tracks from the weekend. That last track is more of a classic, twisted to suit Liebing’s dark style, but it was refreshed by Pan-Pot at Sunday night’s afterparty. Imagine hearing that at 2am on a Monday morning.
Check out the summer hits before they blow up!
