The longing uncertainty and concern for live music, events and those that work to keep it alive in the U.S. is as real as it can get. With venues closing, events being postponed into 2021, I wonder to myself what do those next steps look like?

Now with some hope in sight “United By Dance” seeks to make sure that will all begin to change with a live music, socially distant, camp-in music experience! See the press release below;

The daytime to nighttime gathering lands upon the spirit of the ‘60s at Bethel, New York is bringing with it a new generation of art & music to Yasgur Road, home of Max Yasgur and the Woodstock reunions.

The 18+ open-air venue will be hosting the first electronic music and art installation gathering with NYCtophiLA after producing a full summer of drive-in style events. With 18 hours of non-stop house, tech house and techno, attendees will attend a socially distanced conscious permitted event, enforcing all CDC and WHO recommendations for a safe event. Cars will be setup in a strategic way to provide plenty of space on a large beautiful field in a dream like setting, with designated walk ways and a mobile ordering system for food and vendors (for those that don’t take advantage of the BYOB & BYOF). Temperature readers will also be in full effect with mandatory mask wearing when attendees are not in their car zone area – and there will be an incentive to arrive with proof of a recent COVID test too!

Featuring a well rounded line up of dance music icons and future super stars; FM broadcasting as well as amplified sounds will accompany an intense mega-laser show and a variety of art installations providing eye candy throughout the gathering. For those that want to take a break from the music, there is plenty of space in the campgrounds to pop up your tent and relax in the magic of the forest. A very limited amount of GA/VIP car passes will be available to maintain social distancing guidelines, going on sale Saturday September 12th at 10am.
