N.E.R.D., M.I.A., Hot Chip for Brooklyn party
N.E.R.D, MIA and Hot Chip are set to perform at the New York leg of a party that will happen in 18 cities across the globe on October 11.

They are among a string of acts who will reportedly collaborate at the event, which will take place at Pier 3 on the Brooklyn waterfront with views of Manhattan’s skyline.

Tokyo, Beijing, Dubai, Athens, Amsterdam, Milan, Zurich, Munich, Paris, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Oslo, Helsinki, London and Sao Paulo will also host events on the date, with the finale of the celebrations taking place in the Big Apple.

The event, entitled ’Rock and Roll Circus’ will be hosted by the Diesel clothing brand, and is set to include all the elements of a theatrical circus from fire-eaters to trapeze artists

More acts will be announced in the coming weeks, with a surprise special guest to be revealed on the night of the party.
