The 4Knots Music Festival, established in 2011, is the Village Voice‘s annual day-long celebration of bands and DJs. This year the show is headlined by breakout psych-folk guitar wizard Kurt Vile. Rounding out the bill are acts we love and have written about all year: the Men, Parquet Courts, Marnie Stern, The Babies, Fat Tony, Hunters, Reigning Sound, Heliotropes, and Steve Gunn. The official after-party is headlined by enigmatic rapper Lil B, with support by his friends and collaborators Clams Casino and Keyboard Kid.
The 4Knots Music Festival takes place at Piers 16 and 17 of the South Street Seaport from 1 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 29. The 4Knots Music Festival After Party is held at Music Hall of Williamsburg, located at 66 North 6th Street in Brooklyn; doors open at 8 p.m. The festival is free. Tickets to the after-party are sold out.
