New York

Stand up! Over the next two months, we’ve picked some of our favorite to-dos for you to start and end your summer with including AFROPUNK Brooklyn.

Everyday People: July 3rd and 4th

There’s been a real thirst for day parties and live music events especially post-pandemic. People want to have fun and be in community and meet new people and be outside. Everyday People want that too.  Across the summer, Everyday People will be hosting day events that’ll have you in bed by a respectable time to later parties and that extra outside feeling. It’s a win win for everyone! Tickets can be bought here or via Dice. EP events are not limited to NYC, and will be having events throughout the year and internationally.
