Going To Ape Fest? The BAYC Wants You To Take This Survey, Plus What We Know About The Event So Far:
The Bored Ape Yacht Club’s first ever Ape Fest, is less than a month away and the club is asking apes who are planning to attend to fill out a short survey.
“Hey apes! If you're planning on attending Ape Fest, please fill out this survey (gated to BAYC/MAYC) to help with headcount,” the BAYC posted on Twitter and Discord. “We want to make sure we're accommodating overflow events/spaces.”
The First annual Ape Fest is set to take place in New York City and has five confirmed events taking place between October 31st and November 6th. Ape Fest will overlap with the larger NFT community event, NFT NYC, that’s scheduled during the same time.
“Since many members of the broader NFT community will be descending on New York City at the start of November for NFT.NYC(and the unofficial/offsite events being organized around it), we thought this would be the perfect time for our first annual APE FEST," BAYC Founder, Gordon Goner previously wrote in the BAYC Discord Announcement channel. “We wanted to share some info about what we have planned so people can be prepared.”
Ape Fest Activities begin on October 31st with “APED NYC” at Bright Moments Gallery from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. After 6 p.m., the next event will be “APE FEST MUTANT HALLOWEEN PARTY." The party will run until the gallery closes. More information on the party and how to RSVP will be made available soon. After the party, the next Ape Fest event will be “APE FEST YACHT PARTY” at Pier 40 Halloween night.
Tickets for the “APE FEST YACHT PARTY” are free for Bored Apes and Mutant holders. Apes and Mutants that are interested in attending the yacht party can get their tickets on a first come first serve basis during the APED NYC at Bright Moments Gallery event earlier that day.
In order to verify who is an ape/ mutant holder, the Goner said the club will be utilizing a one-time passcode system. This system will be similar to the one that the club has previously used for merchandise drops. Apes and mutants Will need to bring this passcode with them to the APED NYC at Bright Moments Gallery event in order to get a ticket.
Next, The BAYC will be hosting an APE FEST MERCH POP UP on November 1st and 2nd from 11 a.m.- 7 p.m.. The Club will provide more information on the pop up as it becomes available.
Following the MERCH POP UP, the next event will be the "APE FEST WAREHOUSE PARTY" on November 3rd. The party will take place at Brooklyn Steel, which was previously ranked as one of the best live music venues by Rolling Stones Magazine. Admittance for this event is free to Bored Ape and Mutant Ape holders. In order to get in, the club will be handing out wristbands for the event during the MERCH POP UP. Just like the yacht party, apes and mutants will need a passcode to prove that they’re club members.
The final confirmed APE FEST event is a VIP CHARITY DINNER on November 6th from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.. “Our very own OhhhShiny is arranging a VIP dinner at Carbone for November 6th! Capacity is limited, so tickets will be auctioned off with proceeds going to charity after costs are covered,” Goner wrote. “All are welcome. Details for ticket sales and more information to follow.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to report on any new information regarding Ape Fest and let you know when more details become available.
