Through his legendary residency at New York’s Paradise Garage, Larry Levan elevated DJing to an artform and provided the soundtrack to one of the most fertile moments in the history of dance music. Levan’s sessions throughout the ’80s at the Garage were dubbed “Saturday Mass,” an acknowledgement that – to many – going to the club was a weekly ritual of the upmost importance.
As part of the local initiative to rename King Street Larry Levan Way, the Red Bull Music Academy is proud to pay tribute to the legacy of Levan along with some of his most ardent supporters at the place that mattered to them most. Join us as we take over King Street between Varick and Hudson on May 11th with François Kevorkian, David Depino, Joey Llanos and some special guests for the Larry Levan Street Party.
