It’s a 90-degree day in April and there is nothing we’d rather be doing than thinking about rollercoasters and beaches and sun and Coney Island hijinks and rubbing butts with half-naked strangers who should really be wearing more than that, come on now. So we’re downright ebullient to announce the official details on this year’s Siren Festival, which will, as always be free, all ages, and rain or shine. It’ll take place on Saturday, July 18 and likely involve a crowd-surfing drummer. Without further adieu:
