Bang on a Can have announced the lineup for the 2023 edition of their destination music festival Long Play. This year's fest goes down May 5-7 at venues across Brooklyn, including Pioneer Works, Roulette, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Public Records, Littlefield, BRIC, Mark Morris Dance Center, and The Center for Fiction, plus outdoor events TBA.

Long Play 2023 is set to feature Art Ensemble of Chicago, Philip Glass Ensemble, Dawn Richard and Spencer Zahn, Mount Eerie, Tyshawn Sorey, Caroline Shaw, Nu Jazz, and more. The fest opens with a collaborative concert by Meredith Monk and Vocal Ensemble and Bang on a Can All-Stars, where they'll perform Meredith Monk's Memory Game. Bang on a Can co-founders and artistic directors Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe said of the lineup:

Music, right now! What is it, you might ask? You know, we can't tell you! And that is a good thing. There is so much music happening that no one can pin it all down. Loud music, soft music. Delicate music, rugged music. Written down music, improvised music. Music for speeding up and music for slowing down. All around the world, musicians are innovating wildly, creating revolutionary sounds and experiences that no one could have imagined without them. And where is all this happening, you might ask? That we can answer! In Brooklyn, crossroads of the world, where musicians and audiences and peoples and sounds from everywhere come together. You can see and hear them all, on LONG PLAY.

Tickets for Long Play are available now. See all of the announced performers so far below.
