Tickets for PEOPLE go on sale Monday, March 25 at noon.
PEOPLE, which had its second edition last August in Berlin, will be preceded by a five-day residency where the artists will compose new work for the festival. Here's how they describe it:
37d03d is a steadily growing group of artists who have come together for these residencies since 2016 to create and share their work. These events were established to provide time and space for artists to develop ideas, inspire each other and make new work. These are artist driven projects which have not failed to deliver unique experiences for the audience that witness them.
37d03d events to date have been transformative for both the artists and the audience. Following the initial residency in Berlin in 2016 the community gathered to discuss how they could continue to be creative together while apart. That started the conversation that eventually lead to the creation of the 37d03d online platform.
Free of headliners and sponsors, 37d03d events have been known to be a revelation in uncertainty and surprise.
Meanwhile, Dessner will be busy with The National this year, releasing a new album and touring with Courtney Barnett (including two big Prospect Park shows).
