‘King of New York’ brings music community together

The ‘King of New York’ was formally known as Rob Fernandez, a nightlife icon and globally respect event promoter, he helped architect New York’s nightlife, becoming a primary figure in the city’s entertainment culture for over 25 years.
Sadly passing away on 10th July earlier this year, his legendary status among artists and members of the industry is no small thing.
‘HOUSE OF ROB CELEBRATION’ on 16th September aims to bring together the music community to celebrate the life and legacy of Rob Fernandez, and none other than Pacha, NYC. With 100% of the proceeds going to his family, you get the feeling its something Rob would do himself, making it all the more suitable and fitting.
The beloved ‘King of New York’ was renowned for inventive parties, a keen eye of tends and talent and a kind-heart nature for stars, peers and up-and-comers, the global music industry is going to miss his presence deeply. With an outpouring of tributes from agents, DJ’s, fans, friends and many more, the line-up for the mega-promoters farewell event is a true reflection of his impact on so many individuals and the scene as a whole.
