DJs often begin as avid record collectors, much as orchestra conductors often start out as people who just have a ton of French horns lying around.

Arrival NYC brings the beach to Manhattan, converting the roof of Pier 92 into a tropical resort on the Hudson complete with delicious food, cool drinks, and DJ sets from dance-inspiring musicians. Hip-hop artist Wyclef Jean, known for hits such as “Gone Till November,” thrills fans with a DJ set. Praised by the New York Times for his "head-spinning eclecticism," crunk mastermind Lil Jon also grabs the turntables, splicing stomach-quaking beats to whip dancers into a frenzy. The EC Twins and Serge Devant warm up the speakers, tag-teaming tunes for 12 hours of nonstop dancing.
From their perch atop Pier 92, partygoers can take in the Macy's fireworks show above the Hudson and gaze on panoramic views of the midtown skyline. A full cash bar keeps throats cool and bodies primed for all-day dancing, and hungry partiers can chow down on fresh cuisine from some of the city's most popular food trucks, including Phil's Steaks, Milk Truck, and Sweetery (not included with this Groupon). Vendors will also be grilling such quintessential Fourth of July fare as hot dogs, hamburgers, and decrees from King George III.
