The Float will transport you physically, emotionally, mentally and also physically. Floating is your destiny. Just ask Metro New York. Or Portland Theatre Scene. Or any of these faces.


For those unfamiliar with the idea of a "floating dance party", allow us to explain.

We're gonna lead you on a mind-expanding dance adventure through the streets and plazas and parks of the city. All you gotta do is bring your bad self to our starting location, where we'll set you up with a receiver and a pair of glowing headphones. Or bring your own headphones if you like.

Our DJs will have the music swelling in your ears and in your hearts, while we remain completely inaudible to any observer we may happen upon. Meanwhile, the pied pipers of Float will guide you on an exploration of a different neighborhood each month. While under the thrall of the dance we'll "float" through the streets, parks, and buildings of the city as the music and the night inspire us, creating joyful dance mayhem wherever we pause. Find out more!

How To Float


Everything you need to know to have the best night of your life.

We can't wait to take you on a silent mobile dance adventure. Here, in six easy steps, is everything you need to know in order to FLOAT:

1. SAVE MONEY WITH ADVANCE TICKETS

Tickets are already available for our first Float on May 20 & 21! The first block of tickets is just TEN DOLLARS(!), but as each Float approaches, the prices will rise, peaking at $25 at the door.

2. Dress Yourself APPROPRIATELY.

Attire yourself appropriately for epic dancing. WEAR COMFORTABLE, RUNNING-FRIENDLY SHOES. Costumes, makeup, anything glowing, normcore, whatever. Look like your bad self.

3. READY YOUR MIND AND BODY FOR THE EXPERIENCE.

Drink responsibly. Responsibly. WEAR COMFY SHOES. Seriously. Stretch. Hydrate. Round up all your cool friends. Also round up your lame friends. Make them wear comfortable shoes too.

4. Join us.

Join us at [TOP SECRET EVER-CHANGING DRINKING ESTABLISHMENT] and avail yourself of drink specials if you so choose. Mingle. Or psych up solo. Your call. BYO headphones

5. Dance.

We'll lead you on an epic, one-of-a-kind dance adventure through a new neighborhood and new music each month.

Our Float Families


What The Float calls both Los Angeles and New York City home. Our reach is ever-expanding though, and we have events planned in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. later this summer.

New York City

THE ORIGINAL EUPHORIA

New York is What The Float's first home. We've been staging floating dance parties throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn since 2011. Our ever-expanding cadre of Float creators sequence mixes, shepherd Floaters on their psychedelic dance journey, provide mobile bag check, design accessories and cover art, and more. They've got even more to share with you this year.

Los Angeles

HIGH OCTANE UPSTART

In 2013 What The Float expanded its reach to Los Angeles, where we get down year-round. WTF:LA has already established a deep well of hard-working creators, and SoCal weather allows for constant mobile musical mayhem. Here's what you need to know to attend a free Float in LA.
