Split Rock Resort is the very image of the Poconos. 1980s architecture, tasteful chandeliers, earth tone color palettes, moose heads, a bowling alley, an artificial surfing wave — in short, the perfect setting for family fun. Of course, this is 2016 and the exact nature of that family is up for interpretation.
Boiler Room’s kin is club Illuminati, and so on November 4-6, the Ray-Ban x Boiler Room Weekender will be making Split Rock its very own familial VIP room. The RSVPs for the two-day convergence include some of the global club collectives that have made Boiler Room the celebrated DJ series it’s become over the last seven years.
Along with those crews, Virgil Abloh, Kanye West’s creative director, was tapped to provide curatorial skills for the festival. Here’s a partial look at Weekender’s lineup and some of its other curators: GHE20G0TH1K, NYC-Jamaica connectors Mixpak, LA’s Soulection, Discwoman, African crew NON, San Francisco’s Honey Soundsystem, Mexico City’s NAAFI squad, and Londoner Kamixlo of Bala Club. You’d have to be a globe-trotting club princess to have already caught sets by all the talent. As it is, attendees will need the endurance of a marathoner to make sure they give them all their dancefloor due.
Curators also lined up a host of extracurriculars, including films, virtual reality setups, dance classes, and a special presentation by Brooklyn zine Love Injection.
Accommodation options for the Weekender are completely sold out, but because you deserve it, Remezcla is partnering with Ray Ban x Boiler Room to give away two day passes for Friday and Saturday. Day passes do not include accommodation, but offer access to “performances and events Friday night and all-day Saturday, a pool party in the H20 Waterpark, and curated experiences including art installations, afterparties, and theater programming.”
Enter to win below. The giveaway runs until October 30, 2016:
