MIDTOWN — Hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash will headline a dance party in Bryant Park next month.

The pioneering DJ, who appeared on the Netflix series “The Get Down,” will take the helm at the second-annual Barefoot Ball on Wednesday, July 26, the Bryant Park Corporation announced Monday.

General admission tickets for the event, which runs from 7 to 11 p.m., start at $75 and are available online. The ball includes an open bar, food for purchase and other activities.

“This year’s barefoot Ball provides a great vehicle for celebrating our 25th anniversary, and for the public to participate in an occasion that will mark this milestone,” Bryant Park Corporation’s executive director Dan Biederman said in a statement.

“And we’re honored to have Bronx native Grandmaster Flash at the helm."
