The Village Voice proudly announces the initial lineup today for its fourth annual free 4Knots Music Festival, being held on Saturday, July 12th from 1-8pm at New York City’s South Street Seaport, rain or shine. The Julie Ruin, Those Darlins, Speedy Ortiz, Radkey, Viet Cong, Nude Beach, Juan Wauters are scheduled to perform, plus more to be announced soon.
Manhattan’s favorite summer music festival will return with hand-picked bands by the Voice music team. With this year’s festival, The Voice continues their 14-year history of curating free, outdoor, all ages live music festivals featuring the most renowned and emerging artists breaking through today’s scene. 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.
Announced earlier this month, the Official 4Knots Music Festival After Party will take place at Webster Hall on July 12th, immediately following the festival. The lineup for this show and tickets will be available soon.
Bud Light is returning as the 4Knots Music Festival presenting sponsor.
