Haitian Kings of New York, a.k.a H.K.N.Y, established in 2006, are a band of brothers who are tastemakers and trendsetters in their own right, led by Lovens Gedin, aka DJ Stakz. They all saw the need to fill the void with amazing events, which was lacking among the urban Haitian-American demographic. They brought the cool back to Kompas parties and haven't looked back since. For years DJ Stakz has dominated the music scene with events created to celebrate Caribbean-American culture. Throughout the years, thousands of supports have come together to celebrate with him. DJ Stakz is trusted amongst revelers everywhere with tons of events like Miami Carnival, New York Takeover Weekend, and Spring Break Haiti. In conjunction with Haitian Flag Day Weekend, DJ Stakz main objective is to create an unmatchable experience that is cutting edge and disrupts the digital community.
May is Haitian Heritage Month and during the third weekend in Miami, it is celebrated with concerts, parties, and festivals honoring the Haitian and Haitian American culture. For the past few years, HPMG/HKNY/DJ Stakz has brought a new element to what is called the HPMG/HK Miami Take Over Weekend. From May 16 - May 20, DJ Stakz will offer an action packed sell out weekend with events attracting over 5,000 or more patrons.
HPMG/HK Miami Takeover will consist of multiple events that will bring travelers, music enthusiasts, taste makers and trendsetters of all kinds.
