The Bored Ape Yacht Club’s annual ApeFest is heading to New York City this year, coinciding with this year’s NFT.NYC.
This year’s ApeFest is cast in stone. Per the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s (BAYC) official Twitter announcement, the famed apes will be taking over New York City’s Pier 17 from June 20 to 23 for ApeFest.
It will be remembered that BAYC moved up ApeFest’s date to coincide with this year’s NFT.NYC. BAYC and Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT holders can come to the event free of charge.
Going Bananas over ApeFest
The NFT.NYC is a conference that focuses on companies and individuals using NFTs to further the adoption of blockchain to a mainstream audience. Last year was NFT.NYC’s first major conference but it drew more than 5,000 NFT collectors and enthusiasts to New York. Featured speakers from last year were Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk.
The event’s organizers announced the final dates early to allow NFT holders enough time to make travel plans. Hence, a bigger turnout is expected this year. And with NFT.NYC moving up the conference’s date for 2022, ApeFest had to follow suit.
As early as February this year, BAYC has been giving feelers about the event. Last April, they even gave both BAYC and MAYC holders and non-holders a chance to bid on two tickets for the ApeFest. Getting their hands early on the tickets would mean BAYC and MAYC holders can skip the long lines during the event, while for non-ape holders, bidding on the tickets would mean donating to a charitable cause.
At any rate, the date has been set for 2022’s highly- anticipated IRL event, and what better place to hold this year’s event than in the city that never sleeps.
Last year’s ApeFest was the highlight of NFT.NYC, starting with a yacht event and marking the first time when a huge number of BAYC community members gathered in real life. That first installment was a huge success, and since then, the BAYC NFT project has grown to epic proportions.
In fact, the Bored Apes are now considered the NFT space’s rockstars, with a remarkable floor price of almost Ξ 100 or roughly $202,500 each. So it’s not surprising that BAYC and MAYC NFT holders are excited for this year’s ApeFest, knowing they’re in for a treat.
What’s in Store for Attendees
The BAYC community is in for four wild nights of unforgettable performances. The chosen venue for ApeFest 2022 is Pier 17, an indoor/outdoor waterfront venue that offers panoramic views and an epic 1.5-acre rooftop. The venue’s capacity is 3,400 for each of the ApeFest’s four nights, double the estimated attendees from last year’s.
Further details about ApeFest 2022 are expected to come out in the next few days leading to the event. Ape community members are advised to fill out a quick survey in Discord if they plan to attend. They can take the survey without needing to connect their wallets.
Strict guidance is also given to the entire Ape community not to entertain any communication regarding ApeFest in any form, as BAYC will not be sending anything other than through their official channels.
