Holy Ship 2018 kicked off in fine fashion with a slew of talented DJs on the lineup and plenty of mischief. Here’s a look inside the feted event.
ADID brings a pop of New Year’s color to LA (Photo Gallery)
There are few better ways for house lovers to ring in the New Year than All Day I Dream. The Lee Burridge-headed brand is known for parties that foster an intimate, familial vibe among its attendees by way of ethereal beats and equally whimsical decor. Since its foundation, ADID has made LA part of its New Year’s celebrations, amassing thousands of jubilant fans together to dance forward in time.
2017 saw the return of the brand to Gin Ling way in Chinatown, where magic and color ensued. Dancing Astronaut has selected just a few photos from the affair to show just how lovely the party can be.

Reminisce on dreamier times with these ADID LA photos (Event Gallery)
Lee Burridge aimed to “make people smile” when he created his All Day I Dream parties, according to a recent interview with Billboard. Over the past six years since he started the organizing events on a summer Brooklyn terrace, All Day I Dream has since grown exponentially to be heralded as both one of the most well-loved events on the underground house circuit and as one of the top labels for melodic, ethereal music.
Summer has officially wound down, but the landing has been made considerably more graceful for All Day I Dream fans. Lee and his motley crew of fellow dreamy house purveyors have been making one last round of stops across the United States and the world, providing fans with blissful tunes that match the surrounding weather.
On September 23, the party touched down in central Los Angeles, where the following images captured just how magical the afternoon and evening were.

City Hearts captured: photos from CHLA capture the real magic of Desert Hearts
Desert Hearts’ spring iteration passed by half a year ago, and festival season is coming to a close. This means that it’s officially time for Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, and Porkchop to deliver their mantra of “house, techno, & love” as far as they can — and they’re doing just that. The core crew is right in the middle of their City Hearts “Take The Ride Tour,” which sees them traveling across the United States as well as global locations and providing loving audiences with a raucous party that carries their high spirit.
Their growth has been so vast as of late that 2017 has opened up a new chapter for the movement: an entire festival around City Hearts. Come November 12, LA will become the first city to receive the fledgling event, with all proceeds going to the homeless.
Those intrigued by the City Hearts festival can proceed onward for a gallery of the most recent City Hearts iteration at The Belasco theater in Los Angeles, where the joy ensuing that night is palpable through sheer imagery.
