The Freedom Party®
The Freedom Party® is NYC’s most legendary old-school dance party! Created in 2003 by Herbert Holler, DJ Cosi and Marc Smooth, Freedom’s purpose is to bring different people together through a classic NYC dance party. Playing predominantly hits from the 80s, 90s and 2000s, be it hip-hop, R&B, pop, rock, reggae or house, Freedom fills its dance floor with people from all walks of life, all ethnicities, races, creeds and colors, from all over the world, looking to have fun, celebrate life, make new friends and be free.
In 2010, Freedom won Papermag‘s award for “Best Party (Peoples Choice),” and received an honorable mention in URB Magazine‘s “Best Party” nationwide. In 2015, Freedom won Village Voice’s highly coveted award for “Best Dance Party.”
In the summer of 2011, Freedom flew Midwest to begin a new journey. Now in its fifth year, Freedom Party® CHI has quickly become the Second City’s #1 party destination. Each month, Freedom brings hundreds of discerning partygoers to its dance floor (now at Beauty Bar, 1444 West Chicago Ave), spreading that NYC love to new listeners and growing the Freedom family.
Now in its 13th year, the Freedom Party® NYC continues to pack its dance floor at highly sought-after events throughout the month, and add the most legendary dance destinations in town to its resume, including our annual anniversary at Central Park Summerstage, “One Step Beyond” at the American Museum of Natural History, Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Spring Gala, First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum, Celebrate Brooklyn at Brooklyn Bridge Park and more.
Thousands of people are in attendance at these events.
Thousands of people dancing to the sounds of FREEDOM!
