4Knots Music Festival (07/14/12)
Hey folks, it turns out that last year’s inaugural 4Knots Music Festival was enough of a success that they’re bringing it back this year. The 2012 4Knots Music Festival will take place on Saturday, July 14 at the South Street Seaport. (No doubt it will be a hot and sweaty day.)
“We’re thrilled about the return of the 4Knots Music Festival this summer,” commented Village Voice publisher Josh Fromson. “Last year’s inaugural event was a massive success and we’ve got a great deal of special things in store for this summer. Make sure to circle July 14th on your social calendar because it’s going to be a great day of music at the Seaport.”
The 4Knots Music Festival will feature renowned and emerging artists from today’s music scene performing live all day in front of what is sure to be yet again an extremely large and enthusiastic audience. A full lineup of the day’s events will be announced in coming weeks. Last year’s event featured music from: The Black Angels, Titus Andronicus, Davila 666, Oberhofer, Eleanor Friedberger and numerous others.
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. The Seaport and Pier 17 have a rich and diverse history as profound to New York City as Wall Street, Central Park or even Times Square. Historically, the lower portion of the East River has been one of the busiest and most important channels in the world.
