The Village Voice, infamously known for orchestrating a music festival for New Yorkers each year, is delivering once again. On Saturday, July 14th, 4Knots Music Festival kicks off for a second year at South Street Seaport piers 16 and 17.
Open to all ages, and occurring in rain or shine, 4Knots welcomes both renowned acts as well as emerging talent. Some alternative bands set to perform include The Drums, Archers of Loaf, and Bleached. For a full list of bands, check out the festival’s website.
The event ends at 8pm, but that doesn’t mean the festivities will stop completely. Tickets to the afterparty are available here, a bash which DJ Jonathan Toubin is set to host. Special performances will include DJ April March and go go dancer Ana Copa Cabanna. Did we mention there will be a limbo contest? Sold.
PS, In case you were curious, or perhaps a trivia junkie, the name “4Knots” comes from "the speed of the water as it moves through New York's East River at the South Street Seaport".
