Do Not Sleep Lands At Halcyon Nightclub For San Francisco Debut

Do Not Sleep, the infamous party brand and label from Ibiza will be taking over San Francisco’s newest 24-hour club, Halcyon, on 18th February. This is a rare opportunity to catch another one of Ibiza’s most popular names in the U.S. and is the first ever Do Not Sleep label showcase in California. Do Not Sleep, a name synonymous with the best in underground house and techno music, with a firm philosophy of a no frills, no nonsense, non-conformist, nomad party, will be led from the front by brand resident and house music superstar, Darius Syrossian. Also stepping up to the coveted Halcyon turntables is renowned, Canadian groove master, Nathan Barato. Do Not Sleep is yet another illustrious addition to the Halcyon line up which has been receiving high praise from clubbers and  across the global dance music industry.  Tickets for the event are available here:

Halcyon opened its doors in November 2016 with a mission to set the highest standards in clubbing. Since then it has welcomed some of electronic music’s most talented artists to the helm, including, Dubfire, Fritz Kalkbrenner (live), Madmotormiquel, Jan Blomqvist (live), Sharam, DJ Sneak, Serge Devant, Visionquest (Lee Curtiss & Ryan Crosson), Kenny Dope, Tiefschwarz, Lee Burridge, Marco Bailey and more.

“To say we’re excited to bring this party to Halcyon is an understatement. Bringing such a well known global dance music brand & their artists to San Francisco,  truly underlines our passion to create world class clubbing experiences in our venue,” says Gina Milano, Halcyon Owner.

Do Not Sleep took Ibiza by storm in 2015 with its residency at the legendary Space nightclub. Since then it has grown rapidly to encompass a record label and worldwide monthly radio show, while its Ibiza 2016 season at Space took the party to dizzying new heights. Now Darius Syrossian is taking the Do Not Sleep party to the world’s best clubs, including Halcyon, for its Californian debut.

Ibiza continues to show its influence at Halcyon, as Do Not Sleep follows Cocoon in choosing Halcyon to create parties with a unique Balearic vibe in San Francisco. These giants of the white isle have been enticed by the multi-sensory clubbing environment created by the Halcyon family, which includes a hand-picked sound team, creative director & talent buyer, dancers and costume designers, all of whom hail from Ibiza. This team has ensured Halcyon is the first club in San Fran able to deliver events similar in quality and vibe to the best parties in Ibiza.

“Really excited about playing in San Francisco,” says Darius Syrossian. “It's easily my favourite place in the states to visit as the crowd are always so up for the party. Plus, I've heard amazing reviews of Halcyon, especially around the 24hr license which means we can take the party late. It's going to be great to hook up with my bro Nathan Barato too, bringing the Do Not Sleep Ibiza vibe to California.”

Darius Syrossian is one of electronic music’s most passionate and refreshingly outspoken characters. As well as his weekly residency with Do Not Sleep at Space, he found time to deliver a compilation for the esteemed Balance series, provided a coveted BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, produced records for taste-making labels such as Mobilee sister label, Leena, Material, Definition: Music, as well as massive tracks for his own Do Not Sleep label. Forthcoming this year are releases / remixes for Kaluki Music, Mobilee and 20:20 Vision, with much more to come. Expect Darius Syrossian to tear up the Halcyon dancefloor with his inimitable style of house and techno.

Nathan Barato has carved out a reputation as one of dance music’s most diverse and prolific DJ / producers. Hailing from Toronto originally, he has risen to international prominence. His music has appeared on some of the most prestigious imprints in the industry, including Hot Creations, Rekids, Cajual, Saved Records, MOOD, and his own, Roots And Wings label. A regular at Do Not Sleep Ibiza, Nathan Barato has filled dancefloors around the world, including BPM Festival, Ultra, Fabric, DC10, Warung Beach Club, Amnesia, Ministry of Sound and many more. This is a DJ guaranteed to deliver something special to the Halcyon crowds. 

For those who hold Do Not Sleep as a mantra, there’s no better place to dance than Halcyon, a nightclub that holds one of San Francisco’s (very rare) 24-hour licenses.

Do Not Sleep brings Ibiza’s best party to Halcyon, a club designed to astound the senses like no other. This clubbing combination should not be missed.
