Freedom Party Celebrates 5 Year Anniversary with Slick Rick and other special guests

On Sunday, January 20th The Freedom Party, the most successful long-running dance party in NYC, will celebrate its 5 Year Anniversary with a birthday blowout at BB King’s NYC. Pairing their highly successful dance party with performances from some of the most legendary names in Hip-Hop, the event will feature performances from Slick Rick, Nice & Smooth, Chubb Rock, Lisa Lisa and other special guests.

The Freedom Party’s mission is to bring back the dance floor. As Freedom Party founders DJ Herbert, DJ Marc Smooth and DJ Cosi reminisce about the city’s golden era of nightlife, they remember a time when people went out to have fun, dance and really enjoy themselves. Those nights on the town and the places they visited were their temples of worship, where people from different walks of life came together to be free and rejoice to the music. “As a collective, we missed the days when going to a party didn’t depend on who you know to get in, or how much money you had. The best place to be was on the dance floor, not in VIP,” said founding partner DJ Marc Smooth.

DJ Herbert, who is also known for his weekly email “The Herbert Holler,” added “we decided at that moment that it was time for us to step up and make history. We wanted to provide a fond memory that people could look back on, and give people a place where they could feel FREE! Free to let loose and have fun without pretense. It was our turn to create an event that gave people what those legendary parties gave us. Over the past five years, that is what the Freedom Party has become.”

The Freedom Party is a main-stay for night owls across the globe. Hosting sold-out crowds each week, Freedom has welcomed party-goers from as far away as Los Angeles, Japan and Denmark. When they are in New York, they experience Freedom.
