South Street Seaport
New York, NY 10038
Returning to New York’s legendary South Street Seaport as a FREE festival, The Village Voice’s 4Knots Music Festival will be back for its sixth year on July 9, 2016.
Continuing the Voice’s 15-year history with live music festivals, 4Knots will be showcasing renowned and emerging artists on today’s breaking music scene.
Working together with the Seaport, the festival will be located at this designated New York City historic district which features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan. The entire Seaport neighborhood is meant to transport its visitors back in time to the mid-19th century, to demonstrate what life in the commercial maritime trade was like. The name of the festival “4Knots” comes from this rich nautical history at the Seaport meaning “the speed of the waves as they meet at the Seaport in New York’s East River”.
