    Dinosaur Jr. will be headlining the fourth annual free 4Knots Music Festival, being held on Saturday, July 12 from 1-8PM at New York City's South Street Seaport, rain or shine.

    Dinosaur Jr. joins previously announced artists Those Darlins, Speedy Ortiz, Radkey, Viet Cong, Nude Beach and Juan Wauters, who are all scheduled to perform, plus more to be announced soon.

    The Julie Ruin, who were scheduled to play this year's 4Knots festival, have cancelled all tour plans and commitments due to singer Kathleen Hanna's ongoing struggle with Lyme Disease.

    With this year's festival, the overall event's 14-year history of curating free, outdoor, all-ages live music festivals featuring the most renowned and emerging artists breaking through today's scene, is obvious.

    Running between every borough of New York City and culminating near the South Street Seaport, the East River runs at a speed of "4 knots," hence the name of the festival at this unique and historic location.

    The Official 4Knots Music Festival After Party will take place at Webster Hall on July 12, immediately following the festival. The lineup for this show and tickets will be available soon.

    Free music is good. Free, good music is better. Free, good, live music, in NYC, is the best!

    Anyone plan to 4Knots it?
