The weather Saturday is going to be gorgeous — high in the low 80s and sunny — and we can’t wait to see all of you out at the South Street Seaport, where we’ll be hanging with our good friends Dinosaur Jr., Mac DeMarco, Those Darlins, Speedy Ortiz, Radkey and many, many more. If you’ve not been down to the Pier in a bit, you might notice some changes this year. Namely, Pier 17 isn’t there anymore. So we’ve moved the second stage to a new location and made some other pertinent changes you can familiarize yourself with by looking at the very handy map below. It’ll show you where the VIP boat is, where the stages are, where the food trucks will be, where to charge your phone, etc.
Also, there are still a limited number of tickets available to our Official 4Knots After Party featuring Ab-Soul, Jarren Benton, and YC the Cynic. You can purchase tickets here with the code VOICE for a discount.
But wait! There’s more!
In addition to the 10 bands slated to play, 4Knots Music Festival will also feature Free Phone Charging Stations located on Pier 16 presented by City Tech, plus a Free Photo Booth located on Pier 16 presented by Fairway Market. Also, make sure to visit the official 4Knots Food Truck Courtyard, located on Water and Fulton Streets featuring, Papaya King, Crepes Truck, Softee Xpress, Shanghai Sogo, Nuchas, Uncle Gussy’s and Yankee Doodle Dandy.
This year’s 4Knots Music Festival will feature two outdoor stages spanning from Pier 16 to the Seaport’s Sea/Change walk. It’s our 14th year curating free, outdoor, all ages live music festivals featuring the most renowned and emerging artists breaking through today. 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,” hence the name of the festival at this unique and historic location. Got it?
Also, big shout out to our sponsors! They include … Bud Light, who is returning as the 4Knots Music Festival presenting sponsor. Additional 2014 sponsors include Metro PCS, Deep Eddy, ZUUS Media, Prefunc, Fairway Market, Original Bill’s, City Tech, Once the Musical, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, Rita’s Water Ice, Steaz, Kind, Hornblower Cruises, Green Mountain Energy, Give More, Mrs. Dorsey’s Kitchen, SCRATCHbread and Volvic.
