We're here purely for the love of Electronic Dance Music -- We love going to clubs and shows -- We love the music and the dancing... This includes EDM as a whole, and is not limited to any particular genre. For a full listing of all categories of EDM we enjoy, please see this link :-)
First and most importantly, our meetup group was createdas a place for lovers of EDM to come together, socialize, and create friendships built around our love of the music and the dancing. We don't rely on altered states of consciousness to do so...
Many other groups never actually "meetup".
We strive to run this group as an actualmeetupgroup -- we truly intend to meet each other at events. While this can be hard to do at clubs, shows, and festivals we do our best to plan times and places to meetup. A lot of us attend these events alone because our other friends do not enjoy EDM... We use this site to discuss and plan events and then actually coordinate getting together to enjoy them as a group and make new 'EDM friends'.
It seems as if many of the groups out there exist only as advertisements.
immaculate electronica NY is not run by a venue or promoter or for any advertising purposes. There is absolutely no connection between us and any artist, club, promoter or sponsor. When promoters sometimes post events on our site we do our best to ensure they are truthful in their listings, and to make it clear that they are not regular members. If they are abusive of our site (as has happened in the past) we will remove them. We are not sponsored by anyone - the meetup fees are payed by group members.
This group is intended to be a collaborative effort. We are all organizers.
Organizers do our best to post all events we know of in the immediate NYC area, whether we can personally make it or not. We strive to have no bias for particular genres of EDM or venues. That said, we mostly know about events that match our personal preferences. Our group relies on you as members to list as many events as possible. Every member has privileges to create new meetups and edit existing ones. immaculate electronica NY is a cooperative - please be an active member and do your part to improve and organize it!
