Multiple event concepts fall under the Longturn umbrella, sharing values of immaculate professionalism, a music-first ethos, and a playful identity.
Our longest-running party, Forge, showcases big-room energy in an intimate space, matching up-and-comers and industry veterans like Josh Butler, Dimmish, and Eli Escobar with local visual artists. These pairings sow the seeds for new collaborations and facilitate a unique experience for the eyes and ears. Our goal with this event is to FORGE new experiences and connections between our network of artists, party lovers, dancers, and fans.
Reverie is an opportunity to explore the melodic side of dance music with bookings
like Jody Wisternoff and Enamour alongside captivating decor and lighting installations. The series is curated by Longturn residents Brendan Barstow and CJ Cooper alongside decor mastermind Roxy Oglesby. At a Reverie party you can expect soul-stirring, evocative productions carefully blended to keep the dance floor moving and the mind musing. Typically hosted in the beautiful and newly renovated 3rd floor of Market Street Grocery, these DIY parties create an atmosphere of airiness replete with a view of the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. These inspiring views are complemented by one of the finest audio kits in the city provided by Manifest Soundsystem.
