When Steve Angello throws a party, you know it's going to be huge. And the former Swedish House Mafia member has a big one in store for New York on September 27 and 28 when he will unleash his second annual "SIZE in the Park" festival at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park.
"New York is one of those places where it just creates this warmth inside of you," Angello told MTV News during last weekend's "mental" Tomorrowland 2013 Festival in Belgium. "As a kid growing up, I always looked up to New York as a city. So it's always great to do something like that."
The superstar DJ/Producer and founder of Size Records has promised that the second "SIZE" will be bigger and better than the 2012 inaugural voyage. Expanded to two days, the September event will feature new production elements and support from a number of special guests and members of the SIZE family, according to a spokesperson.
Though the lineup has not yet been released, Angello told us he'll, of course, be on hand, as will Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Max Vangelli, AN21, Third Party, Qulinez and the legendary Junior Sanchez, as well as some other as-yet-unnamed guests.
The festival will also feature a private "pop-up" stage at the front of the house, designed exclusively for "SIZE" by international venue Provocateur that is described as a "fully self-contained luxury installation built to provide the finest hospitality."
Angello said the setting, in historic Central Park, is also a huge part of why "SIZE" is such a big deal to him. "Central Park for me was magical," he said of last year's show. "It was raining and, to be honest, thank God for the rain because they don't allow us to do a lot of stuff over there as production, so ... the rain saved the day."
