full moon, fullmoonnyc, the knocksThe third annual Full Moon will be held on the beach at Governors Island in New York Harbor on Saturday, June 22nd. If the scenic location is not enough to woo you into coming maybe these acts will?

10. Antoine Karl
France-by-way-of-New York producer, Antoine Karl is a nu disco specialist. His mixture of hand-clapping beats and sexy pathos should play extremely well on Governors Island.

09. Miami Horror
Headlining Full Moon will be Miami Horror. I just imagine how great their brand of tropical synth pop will sound under a full moon on the beach.

08. Darius and Le Crayon
French producers, Darius and Le Crayon are both well versed in deep and French house. Expect things to get a little sexy during their set.

07. Cyril Hahn
Sweden-by-way-of-Canada producer, Cyril Hahn has gained a reputation for making remixes filled with lush synth pads and deep house grooves. His music actually reminds me of the Avalanches which is pretty awesome.

06. Vikas Sapra
If Vikas Sapra‘s DJ mixes are any indication, the crowd at Full Moon should be ready for a wild ride through hip hop, club, funk, and disco. No matter the genre, it is clear the Brooklyn producer knows how to party.

05. Wild Belle
Wild Belle may be from Chicago but their sound is straight out of the Caribbean. They essentially sound like a dub version of Lykke Li, the perfect summer jams.

04. Haerts
Haerts is one of the latest signing to HeavyRoc, the label that brought you The Knocks. Their brand of sun-soaked pop should play well with the location.

03. Little Daylight
Electronic duo, Little Daylight are largely known for their remixes. If they bring half the goodness of their remix of The Neighbourhood‘s “Sweater Weather,” then beachgoers should be in for a treat.

02. Tanlines
Last year, Tanlines‘ “All of Me” made our “Best of…” list of singles. The track walked the line between synth-pop and 80-retro; it made for a fantastic dance track. Hopefully their entire set will be as good for their hometown fans.

01. The Knocks
After their strong performance at Governors Ball, there is no reason to think the Knocks won’t bring the party to the beach at Governors Island. Even though it is only a DJ set, their set should be worth the price of admission.
