Benny Benassi and Alesso do Dayglow at Pier 94 on New Year’s Day: photos of the craziness
Pier 94 didn’t just play host to Avicii for a New Year’s Eve celebration, but the venue went hard in the motherf**king paint for the one and only Dayglow on New Year’s Day. DJ David Solano kept the music pumping until Benny Benassi took the stage, playing a bunch of his own hits and some from his friends. R3hab’s remix of “Close To Me” was a highlight of his set, as was his transition from Laidback Luke’s remix of “Cinema” into Skrillex’s.
It was Alesso, however, that took the decks afterward, drawing us in for a set filled with bangers flown in straight from Sweden. He opened with an acapella of his first hit, “Heiress of Valentina,” before lots of originals from the Swede. We were still recovering from Avicii’s Pier 94 extravaganza so we didn’t stay for the whole night, but check out the photos on Facebook to see the craziness for yourself.
