Renowned Welsh DJ and producer Jamie Jones is bringing his “Paradise” party to New York City for the first time this Saturday.

The Ibiza-born bash will be taking place at The Brooklyn Mirage, a massive outdoor music venue in East Williamsburg.

The party series is considered one of the best on the White Isle for its excellent lineup of DJs, extravagant decorations and debauchery-filled nights that extend well into the next day.

Artists on the bill for the Big Apple edition include Jamie Jones, Dubfire, Tiga, Honey Dijon, Doc Martin, Nathan Barato and David Berrie.

The 12-plus hour affair runs from 4 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. and is one of the final shows at The Brooklyn Mirage this summer. The venue has, after a few hiccups, become a staple of the underground music scene in Brooklyn.

And with tropical florae adorning the venue and the party stretching well into the wee hours of the morning, attendees might even feel as though they are on the small Mediterranean island known for its 24-hour parties.

In addition, The Brooklyn Mirage is strangely reminiscent of DC-10, a former airplane hangar turned club that hosts Paradise in Ibiza.

Fans will be eager to see how Paradise head honcho Jamie Jones plans to preserve the vibes of the White Isle, while also bringing a unique New York City feel to the event.

The Brooklyn Mirage is run out of an industrial lot at 140 Stewart Ave. and is operated by Zurich-based entertainment company Cityfox.

The club encompasses an outdoor portion of a 6,000-person, 80,000-square-foot complex that also includes indoor and year-round facilities. The outdoor space is 12,000 square feet.

The entire compound is known as Avant Gardner.

Tickets are available at residentadvisor.net/events/996437.
