The inaugural 4Knots Music Festival will take place this Saturday, July 16th 2011 at the South Street Seaport with performances by: The Black Angels, Titus Andronicus, Davila 666, Oberhofer, Eleanor Friedberger and Mr. Dream. All are scheduled to perform on the outdoor stage at the free, all day, all ages music festival from 1-8PM. All day? Free? In NYC? If you are a Big Apple'r or a five boroughs local, and you don't go, you should be ashamed of yourself.
The Village Voice will also present the 4Knots Indoor Lounge during the 4Knots Music Festival. The lounge, located at 210 Front Street, will be open from 2PM till Midnight with free admission, 21+ only. DJ Sets will take place all day from: Yeasayer, Finger on the Pulse, PUNCHES, and Brahms. Drink specials from Sailor Jerry and Bud Light will be available along with a PopChips photo booth, and much more.
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. The Seaport and Pier 17 have a rich and diverse history as profound to New York City as Wall Street, Central Park or even Times Square. Historically, the lower portion of the East River has been one of the busiest and most important channels in the world. This summer, there will be a new reason for people to flock to the area, which was once also known as the banks of the Sound River.
The neighborhood where 4Knots Music Festival will be held offers attractions, shops and restaurants for every taste. It is easily accessible by subway, car, ferry or bus.
