Manhattan puts on the red light

This winter, New Yorkers can party for a cause when the Meatpacking District turns red for World AIDS Day.

Taking place on 29 November 2012, (BELVEDERE) RED Night Lights is a giant free outdoor party on Gansevoort Plaza, at Ninth Avenue at Gansevoort Street. Chromeo’s unique brand of electrofunk provides the soundtrack to the night, and the plaza will be bathed in red light and lined with Belvedere’s iconic brilliant-white trees.

Looming large will be a giant 250-litre bottle of Belvedere vodka, designed in collaboration with (RED), the initiative which, in partnership with high profile brands, has raised more than $190 million for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

In previous years, landmarks worldwide – including the London Eye, New York’s Empire State Building, Sydney’s Harbour Bridge and Cape Town’s Table Mountain – have turned red to mark the day.

World AIDS Day takes place 1 December 2012 ( For more information about (RED), visit (Belvedere) RED Night Lights kicks off at 8pm; no ticket required.
