As has been the case in recent years, the Siren Music Festival will provide New York City with an indie friendly alternative to Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival. Presented by the Village Voice, the July 17th event takes places the same weekend as P4k Fest and features a number of rising indie acts, including Matt & Kim, Surfer Blood, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Harlem. Oh, and did we mention it’s free? And that it takes place at an amusement park, aka Coney Island? Sweetness.
Additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, head here for more information.
