About Never Bored Ape Party
The Never Bored Ape Party made its debut in Dubai as an official satellite event of this year’s Dubai International Boat Show, organized by Bored Ape and Mutant Ape NFT holders for the global community. The BAYC and MAYC community centers around a collection of 10,000 unique hand-drawn Apes and 20,000 Mutant Apes, each possessing distinct personalities and traits. Bored Ape NFTs have emerged as highly coveted digital assets worldwide, commanding prices that soar into the millions.
The event will feature an electrifying performance by DJ Ape, who will leverage AI to infuse elements of the metaverse into the real world. This Official Afterparty encapsulates the essence of the Web3 community — a dynamic fusion of music, art, culture, and technology that blurs the lines between the virtual and physical realms. Attendees will have access to exclusive BAYC merchandise as they immerse themselves in the “phygital” ambiance.
“Partnering with BlockDown for IBW transcends mere music. It’s about the people, the atmosphere, and our shared commitment to Web3. This event isn’t just a party; it’s a testament to our collective journey through the Web3 universe,” remarked DJ Ape. “Never Bored Ape Party isn’t a one-time occurrence. We’re curating a series of experiences and a digital nomad BAYC family that traverses the Web3 event landscape.”
Organized by EAK Digital, the Web3 Creative Marketing and Communications Agency, BlockDown Festival, and the Never Bored Ape Party event promise an unparalleled fusion of Web3 culture. The Official Afterparty is open to all ticket holders and will groove to the beats of DJ Ape and Switch2Smile. Istanbul Blockchain Week is slated at the Istanbul Hilton Bomonti Hotel from August 22nd to 23rd, celebrating decentralized culture and trade while gathering forward-thinking leaders from across the globe.
