The Village Voice will kick off their annual free 4Knots Music Festival this Saturday, June 29 from 1-8pm at South Street Seaport, rain or shine. The festival welcomes Steve Gunn to their previously announced festival lineup of Kurt Vile & The Violators, The Men, Parquet Courts, White Lung, Marnie Stern, Hunters, Reigning Sound, The Babies, Fat Tony, and Heliotropes. The sold-out after party featuring LIL B and special guests Clams Casino and Keyboard Kid will be held at The Music Hall of Williamsburg immediately following the daytime 4Knots Music Festival. Set times for the festival will be announced on the morning of the festival on villagevoice.com.
In addition to the 11 bands slated for the festival, 4Knots 2013 will also feature lots of free stuff: WiFi all day, sponsored by GroupMe, bike valet by Transportation Alternatives and sponsored by New York Health & Racquet Club, a phone charging station sponsored by City University of New York School of Professional Studies, and a photo booth, sponsored by Bettie Page Clothing.
This year’s 4Knots Music Festival will feature two outdoor stages on Pier 17 and 16. The Village Voice’s 4Knots Music Festival continues the Voice’s 13-year history of curating free, live music showcases featuring the most renowned and emerging artists breaking through today’s music 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.”
