The inaugural Catalpa Festival, a truly unique musical experience, hits Randall's Island July 28th and 29th. There will be plenty of emphasis on site artistry, interactive experiences, and experimentation --not to mention over 40 performers! Musical genres are diverse, including blues, rock, hip hop, electronic, reggae, and indie. There will be art installations, bespoke event structures, and more.
Artists include, The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, Asap Rocky, AraabMuzik, Zola Jesus, Girl Talk, Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, Felix da Housecat, City and Colour, The Sheepdogs, Hook 'n' Sling, My Pet Dragon, just to name a handful.
Other unique events taking place at the festival include the Silent Disco Tent, where party goers listen to DJs through wireless headphones, allowing attendees to dance and sing without anyone else hearing your (probably terrible) singing voice. Frisky's Church of Sham Marriages will also be on deck for those who have imbibed enough to propose. There will be a full time pimp pastor on site, conducting sham and real weddings, complete with candy rings, veils, and 'just married' sashes.
Ticket prices start at $100 and can be purchased here. See you there!
