Inside the Diesel XXX Party

Brooklyn's Pier 13 was a three-ring circus (literally) last night when Diesel celebrated its 30th birthday. Filled with celebs, musicians, artists, fashionistas and locals, the sounds were blasting through the speakers and the liquor was flowing. Rope acrobats and other sideshow entertainment added to the fun, but Diesel didn't stop there. Aside from performing their own sets, Hot Chip shared the stage with Chaka Kahn, T.I. collaborated with MIA and Franz Ferdinand and MIA and N*E*R*D grooved to their own addictive beats. It was so explosive that the NYC Fire Department also made an appearance.

UK import Hot Chip bring their experimental electronic dance pop sound to Dumbo.


Chaka Kahn joins the guys onstage and added flair to the set.
She gets every lady on her feet with "I'm Ever Woman".

T.I. brings 'em out.

Franz Ferdinand back T.I. up on "Live Your Life".
The firemen stopped the party for a bit and did some crowd control.
But no worries the Scots rocked their set soon after.
And the crowd surfing begins...


MIA drives the crowd mad—looks like she came out of retirement, even for at least one night.
The beat's so infectious she can't help but shake her bump.
N*E*R*D join the fun on stage.
Pharrell's appearance also gets the crowd jumping.

No one could avoid taking pics on the purple carpet.
