JUBILEE - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Hailing originally from Miami, Florida and now based in NYC, the gifted DJ and nightlife expert Jubilee aka Jess Gentile provides a unique force in club culture, injecting as much fun as technique into her sets and productions.

For the versatile, forward-thinking DJ — who seamlessly moved through rap, UK grime, dancehall, R&B, and more - started throwing and playing these parties all around the city while establishing herself as a powerhouse musician and a mainstay on Dre Skull's label Mixpak. Much like her DJ style, her productions propel her forward as a respected artist known for her ability to balance party with progressive music.

Her debut album, "After Hours", came out on October 21, 2016 with much critical reception and praise from notable press outlets including Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, The FADER, and much more. Jubilee's music continually resembles an elegantly crafted nightlife narrative while changing frequencies on the Florida radio dial, an homage to partying in the 305.
Salt Cathedral - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Salt Cathedral
Big Waves / Small Waves, the debut record from NY based Colombian-born pop outfit Salt Cathedral is set for release in 2017. Heavily influenced by Brooklyn's Jamaican dancehall scene, the album features collaborations with dancehall legend Assassin (best known for his recent appearances on Kendrick Lamar's 'The Blacker The Berry') dub pioneer Lee Scratch Perry and Matisyahu. Set to perform at SXSW and Firefly Festival this year and with over 9 million streams on Spotify, Salt Cathedral is poised to be one of the most exciting emerging acts of 2017.

Onstage, the band combines live instrumentals, electronics, and choreographed lighting to create an immersive environment of "crackling energy" (Pitchfork).
