The 2022 edition of NYC's New Colossus Festival is coming up quick, happening March 9-13 at East Village and Lower East Side venues Pianos, Mercury Lounge, Berlin, East Berlin, Bowery Electric and Arlene's Grocery. Featuring over 100 acts from all over the world, many of whom are stopping in NYC on their way to SXSW, the festival was inspired by CMJ, allowing badgeholders to club hop between venues with an emphasis on discovery and emerging artists. Badges ($99) are on sale now.

New Colossus has just released the 2022 schedule and finalized lineup, that includes artists from the UK (Garden Centre, Trunky Juno, The Lotts, more), Canada (Pottery's Paul Jacobs, The Garrys, Tallies, Living Hour, Capitol, Art d'Ecco, more) and other points around the globe.

Other acts playing New Colossus: Norwegian band Pom Poko, Italian band Qlowski, The Natvral (Kip Berman of Pains of Being Pure at Heart), Eternal Summers' Nicole Yun, No Age's Randy Randall, new Captured Tracks band Thus Love, Wah Together (members of LCD Soundsytem, The Rapture), Real Numbers, and more, plus showcases from Dedstrange (the label run by A Place to Bury Strangers), M For Montreal, Kanine Records and more.

There are also panel discussions at Pianos on Thursdays, and day parties at some venues Friday - Sunday that are free and open to anyone 21+.
