Techno visionary Richie Hawtin is a titan of touring. Whether it’s DJing famed Ibiza clubs or a festival set on the beaches of Croatia, the minimal mastermind is always ready to put on an impressive show. Hawtin took things to the next level in 2017 with the debut of his audio-visual production, CLOSE, at Coachella last year. Now Richie Hawtin has announced the only 2018 North American date of the highly coveted performance, coming to New York City this winter.

The show will be hosted by OUTPOST Events at Avant Gardner, the large-scale, multi-room Brooklyn venue that has been providing some of the strongest house and techno lineups in the city. Hawtin will set up shop in the spacious Great Hall, which boasts 15,000 square feet of space and a seriously destructive sound system. Featuring elaborate, improvised sets that have been praised as a groundbreaking testament to Hawtin’s live performance skills, this show is poised to be one of the most anticipated events of the year. Supporting acts for the show have not yet been announced, but tickets are available from Avant Gardner now.
