Downtown Fest

The Downtown Music Festival is back, and will stage events in five cities this year. The dates and locations are:

Downtown Cleveland - September 19 & 20
Downtown Minneapolis - September 26 & 27
Downtown New York - October 2-4
Downtown Los Angeles - November 7 & 8
Downtown Houston - November 14 & 15
Lineups are mostly still TBA, but NYC, as you can see in the flyer above, will feature rising 90s throwback pop star Kiesza along with Animal Collective sideproject Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, Bradford Cox of Deerhunter's Atlas Sound, Autre Ne Veut, Tobacco, Jungle, Vacationer, IAMSU!, Zebra Katz, Mas Ysa, Tink, Saint Pepsi, Computer Magic, and more TBA.

"This year's event, the festival's third iteration in New York City, takes place at all three rooms of Webster Hall with a special October 2 kickoff show headlined by Jungle at Irving Plaza." The Jungle show they're speaking of is actually the same one that was announced in June, and is part of a tour that also hits Warsaw in Brooklyn.

Tickets for all five cities, along with the Cleveland and Minneapolis lineups are at the festival's website.

Meanwhile, Kiesza was actually just in NYC last week for fashion week where she played at least one party. Did you get into that? How was it?

For those keeping score, that's three NYC music festivals in October, with CBGB and then CMJ to follow in short succession.
