During this ongoing party series, guests can dance in the Museum’s Rose Center for Earth and Space. Guests can also enjoy the Hayden Big Bang Theater, located in the lower part of the Hayden Sphere, which features a dynamic multi-media presentation, narrated by acclaimed actor Liam Neeson, that takes visitors on a thrilling four-minute trip from Earth to the edge of the visible universe. Each ticket also includes one pass to the Museum for future use. One Step Beyond is presented with Brightest Young Things.

Metro Area (DJ set), headliner


The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, Metro Area was born out of the pair’s love for both the classic moods of R&B, disco, and boogie and innovative, modern dance music. Since 1999, Metro Area has produced many original releases, while continuing to remix and perform—touring as DJs around the world, from Norway to Japan to South America.

Blondes (Live set), support


After getting their start performing in DIY spaces, the duo—Sam Haar and Zach Steinman—released their 2012 debut album, Blondes, and began performing more throughout the United States and Europe. Their most recent album, Swisher, was released in 2013.

Kevin Graves, opening DJ
