Festival Alert: Downtown Festival – October 2nd-4th w/ Vacationer, Jungle, + more

Downtown FestivalIf you haven’t already bought tickets, you should check out this year’s Downtown Festival. The festival, which began in 2013, is run by Downtown Records, and is dedicated to providing a stage for a variety of artists in 5 cities across the country each year. This year’s lineup has a medley of artists from genres ranging from R&B to electronic, rap, and soul among others. Even if you do not know all of the names on the line-up, the festival is meant for music discovery, not everyone attending will be a hardcore fan.

I received an exclusive from Kenny Vasoli of Vacationer on his feelings about the festival: “We can’t wait for the festival at Webster [Hall]. We’ve had increasingly good times there.  NY holds a big place in our hearts, it’s the city we’ve played the most as a band. It will be a pleasure to represent the Downtown family and reignite the vibes on that stage.” Vacationer is performing October 4th at Webster Hall; they released their album Relief this year and their relaxed, happy sound will provide a fun vibe and a great way to end the summer.

October 2nd: Irving Plaza
