Secret Machines to play New York block party

Lower East Side to host debut ‘Ludfest’

The Secret Machines have been announced to headline the first annual ‘Ludfest’, which will take place next month.

The mini-festival will be staged on Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side and will feature performances by A Place To Bury Strangers and Emok, with more bands to be announced shortly.

The event is being held to raise funds for 7th Precinct Community Council which helps needy members of the local community including offering toys to children, and funding the Explorers Program for teens.

‘Ludfest’ will take place 12pm-8pm on September 9.
