In May, Vice and Intel announced the Creators Project, an art & music series that would be hosting events in various cities and on its website. The NYC kick off for that will be Saturday, June 26th at Milk Studios and will include performances by Interpol, Mark Ronson, Die Antwoord, The Rapture, Sleigh Bells, Gang Gang Dance, Salem, N.A.S.A., Neon Indian, Lemonade and others, plus a "very special guest." The event is free; RSVP here. How big is the space exactly? They write that "the eight-floor art gallery and performance space will host thousands of people for live concerts, art exhibits, film screenings and panel discussions by leading artists and the next generation of innovators."
It's the first of five events in different cities- the others are slated for London, Sao Paulo, Seoul and a three-day event Beijing.
For Die Antwoord, it will be their first NYC show, making the July gig at Governors Island their second.
For Interpol, it will be the first time we see them with their new lineup (unless they announce something else soon).
