City of New York denies permits, forces cancellation of high profile EDM events



“Pier of Fear”  from NYC promoters Pacha NYC and RPM have been forced to cancel two upcoming events a part of it’s PIER OF FEAR Halloween events. Permits were not granted due to “recent events” ( cough cough Electric Zoo ) and the event has now become 3 days, forcing the cancelation of SUPER YOU & ME presented by DJ/producer Laidback Luke.

Here’s the official press release:


It is with great regret that we have to inform you that this years Pier of Fear will now be a three day event. Although we were originally granted permits for five shows, due to recent events, the City of New York has denied permits for two of the days. There will now be three shows taking place October 26, October 31 and November 2.

This means that our Super You & Me show scheduled for Friday October 25 has been cancelled. We can’t tell you how this breaks our heart as Luke already missed the opportunity to play New York when the Sunday of Electric Zoo was cancelled. So to ensure that some of his fans still get to see him play we are putting together a Laidback Luke & fans event at Pacha on that same night, October 25. We know it is not ideal – but it’s the best we can do.

You can exchange your Super You&Me ticket for a Pacha ticket and receive a 20% refund (on a first come first serve basis) or if you wish you have your purchase fully refunded please reach out to or TICKET BUYERS CAN EXPECT AN EMAIL IN THEIR INBOX SHORTLY.

Details will be forthcoming about Steve Aoki’s November 1st show.

After the sell out success of Pier of Fear last year, this was set to be another blow out event during Halloween. Please be assured that the we & the artists tried every possible way to have the show go on, however due to recent local events (which were out of our and the artist’s control) it was simply not possible.

We will make this up to you.

Our deepest apologies,
Pacha NYC & RPM
