Laidback Luke’s Super You&Me: Island of Superheroes
On Saturday, June 16th, The Governors Beach Club on Governors Island (just off the southern tip of Manhattan in NYC) was transformed into a wonderland of superheroes and electronic dance music.
The eight hour party (presented by Made Event), was a cross between Electric Zoo and Comic Con. Fans were encouraged to dress like their favorite superheroes as they danced the afternoon and evening away to the sounds of Laidback Luke and friends.
Laidback Lukes’s Super You&Me parties have become legendary events, taking place from Miami to Ibiza. Joining him on the decks at the Governors Beach Club were Oliver Twizt, Peace Treaty, Tommy Trash, and Datsik.
Fans began lining up for the free ferry ride to Governors Island well before the 4pm start time of the event. The ferry ride provided amazing views of Manhattan as well as the sunset later that evening.
Once they exited the ferry and set foot back on dry land, fans wasted no time getting the party started. It seemed like the more dressed up someone was, the more fun they were having. Evidently a ripped up batman shirt qualifies as a superhero costume these days. Villains beware!
From the main sound tent (which was decorated with giant inflatable superheroes) to the beach area behind the stage, everyone was getting down.
The sound system was super on-point. Huge speaker stacks, both up front and behind the crowd, really let the bass kick but remain clean with none of that ear piercing feeling.
All of the DJ’s brought their A-Game for this one. Laidback Luke was hyped and smiling like a little school girl all night. He he really fed off of the crowd’s energy and enthusiastically played up to them in return.
This will be just one of many events on Governors Island this summer. We can’t wait to see what else is in store. Laidback Luke will be returning to NYC on Labor Day weekend to play the Main Stage at Electric Zoo.
