The British electro duo are totally freaking awesome - tearing up Pride celebrations all over the globe, from Sydney's Mardi Gras - the next rainbow event on their worldwide DJ domination is New York City, and what better place to hang than the iconic Party on The Pier, run by Heritage Of Pride.
The Freemasons are no strangers to gay music (even though the boys are cutey straighty one eighties!) — they’ve reworked tracks for everyone from Beyoncé to Kylie, and spun at the White Party in Palm Springs. They’re headlining Heritage of Pride’s official dance this year, with an opening set from DJ Steven Oliveri and from what we hear, a stellar special suprise guest!
Like Mardi Gras Party in Sydney - this is THE iconic event to head too for New York Pride if you want to party party party with Pride.
