Pop-Press: 4Knots Festival in NYC


New York City is home to many a festival this year.

Yet, how many are emanating from the famed South Street Seaport?

The fourth annual 4Knots Music Festival will take place on Saturday July 12th from 1-8pm at New York City’s South Street Seaport (rain or shine). The festival, sponsored and curated by The Village Voice, will feature 10 bands and there will be an official after-party at Webster Hall immediately following.

Similar to last year, this year’s festival will feature two stages – located on Pier 16, alongside the iconic New York City landmark Peking VIP Ship and near Pier 17 within the See/Change space at Fulton @ Front Street. This will expand this year’s festival northwest and onto the iconic cobblestone streets near the former Fulton Market.

Lineup announcements for both the festival and the Webster Hall after-party are set to begin in the coming weeks. The 4Knots Music Festival prides itself on presenting audiences with the best up and coming artists breaking through the scene today. Past performers have included: Kurt Vile & The Violators, The Men, Parquet Courts, Fat Tony, The Black Angels, The Drums, Dan Deacon, Oberhofer, Titus Andronicus, Crocodiles, Nick Waterhouse, Bleached, Archers of Loaf, Delicate Steve, Hospitality, Devin, Eleanor Friedberger, Team Spirit and more at South Street Seaport.
