After its initial success this past summer, CBGB Festival will return to New York City next spring from May 15 to 19. The 2012 version was so much fun that it plans to do the only logical thing: Expand.
The 2013 version will have more films, more guest speakers, more concerts, more venues, more art, more booze, and just more everything. In addition to added art galleries and museums joining hands throughout the Mahattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, the festival will place an emphasis on the importance of social activism in every day life, using CBGB’s close work with Pussy Riot as inspiration. Mark your calenders now (really, May isn’t that far away), and expect further announcements and details in the coming months.
