New Colossus Festival & industry conference coming to NYC the weekend before SXSW

new-colossus

New Colossus Festival is a NYC music festival and industry conference coming to Lower East Side and East Village music venues from March 7-10, 2019. That it happens the weekend before SXSW is no accident — New Colossus is being billed as a stopover and its music lineup features many Canadian, UK and European artists who will be on their way to Austin. They’re focusing on emerging artists, and the lineup includes Canadian bands Ellis, Living Hour and Tallies, Denmark’s Lowly, Italian shoegazers Be Forest, and more, and there are lots of US (and local NYC) artists, like The Natvral (Kip from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart), Wooing, Russian Baths, and more. Check out the initial lineup announce below.

The festival was created and produced by NYC music industry vets Mike Bell (Lorimer Beacon), Lio Kanine (Kanine Records) & Steven Matrick (Kepler Events/Pianos) and they are aiming for a CMJ-esque vibe. “CMJ left such a vacuum, not only for independent music venues, but for bands all over the world that used it as a way to play New York City every year,” says Matrick. “We chose a very convenient weekend to try to bring back that opportunity. We’d also been discussing a way for these venues to work together again and resurrect the collaborative aspect of Manhattan’s music scene.” New Colossus shows will be at Berlin, Coney Island Baby, Pianos, Bowery Electric, Arlene’s Grocery, and The Delancey. Festival passes ($50) are on sale now.

You can also catch The Natvral, Tallies and Honey Cutt (who all play New Colossus) at the free Kanine Records Holiday Party at Baby’s All Right on Monday (12/17).
