A new New Yorker festival that promises to become popular, not only because of its performances, the best and newest of reggae, electronica, hip-hop, indie rock and indie, but because it will fill Randalls Island with art installations and innovative scenarios different than the typical format of the music festivals we know so far.
Different aesthetic and unique atmosphere is what the organizers promise you’ll find at Catalpa youth festival, which starts its history in July. The idea is to bring innovation and creativity to the stage of the 40 presentations to be held on the 28the and 29th of July, making them more interactive and in a Great atmosphere!, At least this is what the organizers have promised. We will have take the chance and experience the first version of Catalpa, but I can tell that just by the performers it is already worth going.
Some of the forty bands that will perform during the two-day festival are, on Saturday the 28th of July are The Black Keys, Zola Jesus, Felix Da Housecat and Hercules and love affair. On Sunday the 29th: Snoop Dog, City and Colour, Girl Talk, and Matt and Kim. As you can see, this is a selection of the most varied and new of the musical styles.
Aside from the fun, Catalpa also helps the needy through Oxfam America, an organization dedicated to fighting hunger and poverty in the world. The value of tickets is $ 179 for both days of the festival. In addition to the entries you should consider the transportion cost to Randalls Island, if you go by car you can buy a ferry ticket for the entire the weekend, if you go by bus the value of the ticket for the weekend is $ 20.
