This has been going on for 12 years now. To celebrate the anniversary, he’s rallied a who’s who of local synth-players for a one-day festival this Sunday in the parking lot on N 6th Street in Williamsburg (right around Music Hall of Williamsburg). Ghostly’s Matthew Dear caps off a day that will also see sets by Juan MacLean, Metro Area, Rub n Tug, DJ Nature, Blondes and McSweeney himself.
