Platinum selling DJ, producer and multi hyphenate artist Dillon Francis has signed an historic nightclub residency deal with Boston-based entertainment conglomerate Big Night for a multi-date residency at their award-winning nightlife venues including Big Night Live, The Grand, Memoire, and Shrine. The agreement also comes in-tandem with planned record collaborations with Big Night Talent managed act ESCAPΞPLAN, which is comprised of two members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT family ETHan (#4321) and zeETH (#309).
The unique proposition places a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT at the center of the agreement, exemplifying the value of the BAYC collection and multifaceted applications of trading NFTs in the current Web3 landscape.
“We couldn’t be more excited to make this historic deal with Dillon Francis and host his return to our venues throughout 2022 and beyond. With each of us being rabid NFT and BAYC enthusiasts, solidifying this engagement and marking our partnership with a Bored Ape couldn’t have made more sense.”

“Having Dillon on-board to work with ESCAPΞPLAN is a monumental step in pushing the project forward, shattering the paradigms of music and the NFT landscape, and building innovative talent brands in Web3, IRL, and beyond.“
