Other artists signed on for the festival include Black Hippy, Beach Fossils, Purity Ring, DIIV, Trash Talk, Royal Teeth, Ducktails, Black Dave and Teengirl Fantasy, Inc. Stay tuned, because dozens more acts will be revealed in the coming weeks.

For the first time, the Downtown Music Festival is branching out and presenting live music in a number of North American cities. Following its first stop in NYC, the fest will run through the downtown areas of Boston, Denver, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Toronto and L.A. in the summer and fall.

Two-day passes for the event are on sale now, with a limited number of early bird tickets available for $79. Single-day passes go on sale Friday, April 12 at 11AM EST.
