NEW YORK, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, New York-based creative agency, Team Epiphany and Complex Media announce the return of the highly anticipated #SUMMERFRIDAYS event series. For three consecutive Fridays beginning on July 29, #SUMMERFRIDAYS will host NYC's most influential tastemakers at private parties throughout the city.
"Now in our seventh year, #SUMMERFRIDAYS has evolved into a flagship cultural and social event for New Yorkers who don't flock to the Hamptons like everyone else for a weekend getaway," said Coltrane Curtis, Team Epiphany Founder and Managing Partner. "Alongside our partners, we're excited to offer our influential friends and family a series that celebrates all the things that make summer in New York special."
DJ Wonder, Executive Producer and DJ of Sway In The Morning, will be gracing the turntables as the official #SUMMERFRIDAYS 2016 resident DJ. Each of his sets will be recorded and distributed for download courtesy of premium audio brand JBL. Avión, the world's best tasting tequila, will provide custom, themed cocktails for each of the events and global beer brand Heineken will provide beers for guests to enjoy. FoodKick, New York's premier same-day food delivery service will be joining this year's program by providing attendees with fresh fruit and snacks.
The dates and themes for #SUMMERFRIDAYS include:
- July 29th – "OH Ship!": #SUMMERFRIDAYS kicks-off with an all-white themed party aboard a luxe private yacht. Oh Ship! will set sail on a scenic cruise around the island of Manhattan, with a VIP lower deck gifting suite hosted by JBL.
- August 5th – "The Sleepover": Tapping into the nostalgia of the 90's house party, "The Sleepover" is a pajama party reinvented for adults. Held at a cornerstone nightlife venue in Brooklyn, the event will include live performances by two of the hottest up-and-coming artists in the music industry.
- August 12th – "10 Pins": This year's finale heads to a Williamsburg hotspot where 10 of NYC's most influential brands, restaurants and companies will compete to have the highest average score in a charity bowling competition. The winning team will have money donated to the Harold Hunter Foundation in their name. Teams will include: Pintrill, Jason Mark, Mighty Healthy, Sweetchick, Greats, Married to the Mob and more. The event will also include a special guest DJ and amazing eats provided by Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken.
"It's always great to partner with other influential creators and curators who share a passion for making culture pop and providing memorable experiences to our community," said Moksha Fitzgibbons, Complex Chief of Brand Partnerships. "We're thrilled to join forces with Team Epiphany once again to bring one of the year's most anticipated event series back to the city."
Originally launched in 2009, the series was rebranded in June 2012 as #SUMMERFRIDAYS, and has since become the go-to event for New Yorkers in-the-know.
