The Black Angels along with Davila 666 and Oberhofer are the first confirmed bands for this year's inaugural 4Knots Music Festival. More bands and DJ's will be announced shortly , but this is the first batch of confirmed bands.
The venerable publication The Village Voice will launch the inaugural 4Knots Music Festival on Saturday July 16th at the South Street Seaport. The festival will be free -yes, free- and it will be open to all ages and will be held rain or shine. Bud Light is the title sponsor of the 4Knots Music Festival. Additional sponsors of the event include Dialogue in the Dark, Bodies the Exhibition, New York Film Academy, Institute of Audio Research and The New York Times.
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. Beginning this summer, there will be a new reason for people to flock to the area, ironically which was once also known as the banks of the Sound River.
The 4Knots Music Festival will feature renowned and emerging artists from today's music scene performing live all day in front of what is sure to be an extremely large and enthusiastic audience. A full lineup of the day's events will be announced in coming weeks.
The neighborhood where 4Knots Music Festival will be held offers attractions, shops and restaurants for every taste. How peachy. You can rock and shop and eat heartily. It is easily accessible by subway, car, ferry or bus.
Are you a New Yorker planning to attend 4Knots Music Festival? It's free - why the hell not?!
