4Knots Music Festival

Back for its third annual run, the Village Voice’s 4Knots Music Festival comes to NYC’s historic South Street Seaport on June 29. The lineup features previously announced headliner Kurt Vile and the Violators, as well as several newly added acts, including White Lung, Reigning Sound, Fat Tony, Heliotropes and the Babies. Also set to perform at this year’s fest are Parquet Courts, the Men and Marnie Stern. The best part? The event is free of charge and open to fans of all ages.

“Continuing the Voice’s 13-year history with live music showcases, 4Knots will showcasing renowned and emerging artists on today’s breaking music scene. Working together with the Seaport, the festival will be located at this designated New York City historic district which features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan. The entire Seaport neighborhood is meant to transport its visitors back in time to the mid-19th century, to demonstrate what life in the commercial maritime trade was like. The name of the festival ‘4Knots’ comes from this rich nautical history at the Seaport meaning ‘the speed of the waves as they meet at the Seaport in New York’s East River,’” reads the festival’s official website.

Previous editions of 4Knots have brought such acts as the Black Angels, Titus Andronicus, Davila 666, Mr. Dream, Archers of Loaf, Delicate Steve, the Drums and Nick Waterhouse.
