Resting amidst breathtaking 360 degree views of the Manhattan skyline, fans dance the night away under dreamy sunsets and a warm, radiant, lively atmosphere. Highly recognized designer Pao Lopez is returning for her third year to pull out all the stops in dressing up The Roof with her signature style of lush foliage and paradisiacal embellishment.
OUTPUT has arranged the days and weeks with numerous jam packed genres, themes, and music icons to fill the coming months with nothing but energy and outstanding performances. Going hand in hand with crisp New York City spring vibes and warm summer breezes rolling around the corner, The Roof Sunday series are bound to be one major highlight of the festive season.

With more already lined up and further acts to be announced, Sundays are reserved for The Roof in NYC.
Both Fridays and Saturdays are no slouch when it comes to reigning in heavy hitter performances, literally creating an entire weekend FULL of festivities. Friday Night Live will appear on select Fridays throughout the summer, starring full bands and top tier electronic musicians. Opening at 5pm as afterwork events, sunsets with Roy Ayers, KiNK, Giorgia Angiuli, Stavroz, Crussen, and more are simply idyllic combinations.
Saturday afternoons also kick off at 2pm and waste no time jumping in with headliners like Dubfire, Anané & Louie Vega, David Morales, and Victor Calderone.

Danny Krivit is set to switch it up with a soulful set at his ‘718 Sessions’ parties, while Alex Cruz’s Deep & Sexy house nights will light up New York with bangin rhythms.
