What are you doing July 28-29th from 1pm to 11pm that is more exciting than seeing huge acts like The Black Keys and Snoop Dogg, chowing down on culinary masterpieces and partaking in something that shoots out 30ft fire balls as DJs take over from within? Nothing.
Taking place on Randall's Island, Catalpa's full lineup is yet to be announced but is already touting acts like TV on The Radio, aforementioned Black Keys and Snoop Dogg, City and Colour, The Big Pink, AraabMuzik, Felix Da Housecat, Fort Atlantic and more. When festival goers aren't rocking out to great music, they can check out an array of attractions; and even those are unique.
All this fun is bound to make everyone hungry! Feast your appetite on something other than soggy burritos found at every other festival. Catalpa has carefully selected the best eateries in New York to bring with them on the island, from stone-fire pizzas to even a farmers market. Artists from New York, European festivals and Burning Man will be setting up art installations throughout the festival weekend for even more eye candy.
Catalpa festival is set to be one of the most unique music and lifestyle festivals to hit this side of the country, and it's about time.
