The "artRave" is the name of the "ARTPOP" launch party held in the Navy Yard located in Brooklyn on November 10, 2013. In the party Haus of Gaga's projects and the collaborations with Inez and Vinoodh, Robert Wilson, Marina Abramovic and Jeff Koons were exhibited, along with Volantis.


The project was officially revealed in Haus of Gaga's open letter on July 15, 2013. That same day, rumor has it that Gaga played "ARTPOP" songs in her car while she gave her each fan an artRave invitation. The rumor was quickly confirmed as a picture of the event appeared on and got much attention.

As the time passed by and the event got closer and closer, Gaga started tweeting to her fans about how excited she is and she revealed much more details about the project.

About the location, it's officially confirmed that is in New York City but nobody knows where's exactly. The invitations didn't feature exact address but it did feature an e-mail address for fans to RSVP the day artRave is held so they could get the time and the location details.


Vevo hosted a live-stream of the concert at 11:30 p.m. ET. on November 10, 2013. The event was available on, as well as Vevo’s free apps on iOS, Xbox and Apple TV. Rebroadcasts of the performance will run for 48 hours following the show.

On November 11 at 9 p.m., ET Clear Channel broadcasted a half-hour “Album Release Party with Lady Gaga” special hosted by Ryan Seacrest on more than 150 Clear Channel Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR), Rhythmic CHR, and Hot AC stations around the country. The album release party will be recorded and televised for The CW Network, and aired Tuesday, November 19 from 8 to 9 p.m. ET/PT.
