New York City’s Teksupport has announced a brand new offering for the East Coast, set to take place on Memorial Day Weekend.
Called Gather, the two-day event will run on May 25-26th on Holiday Mountain in the idyllic Catskills, a mere 90 miles from Downtown Manhattan. The event will pair unique production and some of electronic music’s finest curators within one of the East Coast’s most beautiful regions.
The Catskills is a region rich in musical history that will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock this August. Gather will take place at a mountain resort, and be held lake-side in this deeply forested region, offering an easy escape from the city, soundtracked by world-class selectors in techno, house, electronica and more.
Its debut billing features an array of pioneering house and techno magnates, featuring breakout stars like Amelie Lens and Mira alongside industry stalwarts MK, Moscoman, Audiofly, and beyond. Gather pays homage to America’s dance music roots, with legendary appearances by Stacey Pullen, Danny Tenaglia, Doc Martin, and the familial legacy of Floorplan.
Following electronic music’s emergence into the live performance sphere, the inaugural event will see avant-garde showings by Gaiser and Matador with their full kits in tow, and Mr. G making his US debut in the same fashion. Finally, the venerable Desert Hearts crew, who took away DJ Mag’s 2018 ‘Best Of North America’ award for their festival will also be in attendance, along with Burning Man favorite Francesca Lombardo, Berghain/Panorama Bar resident Ryan Elliott, and Mimi Love alongside SF burner institution Pink Mammoth, to complete phase one.
Attendees will be able to camp on-site or stay at any number of neighboring resorts and hotels. Outside the musical programming, ticket holders will be able to partake in an array of seasonal activities. A shuttle service to and from Manhattan will also be provided.
