Dirty Projectors for New York's Citysol festival
Care Bears On Fire also on bill for solar-powered event
Dirty Projectors and Care Bears On Fire are set to take part in this year’s Citysol festival in New York City.
The bands join a diverse line-up including Ecstatic Sunshine, No Surrender, Shilpa Ray (ex- Beat the Devil), Burkina Electric, So Percussion, Selan and Blitz the Ambassador, and all will perform at the free event on a 100% solar-powered stage.
Located at Solar One's East River-side venue in Stuyvesant Cove Park, the festival will run June 26-29 and attempts to “provide a new venue for creative artistic collaborations, while engaging young New Yorkers in an advocacy campaign to bring about stronger policies in support of clean, renewable solar power in New York State.”
Previous performers at Citysol have included Les Savy Fav, Deer Tick, Japanther, the members of Antibalas, OCDJ, Menomena and more.
