It looks like we’ve got yet another summer festival on our hands here in NYC. The inaugural Catalpa Festival is set to take place July 28-29 on Randall’s Island and they’ve announced their initial lineup, including The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, TV on the Radio, and Umphrey’s McGee in the top slots.
Per the festival’s promoters, they’ll host a mix of bands playing from 1-11pm over two days, along with art installations, structures and unique elements including the Arcadia Spectacular, Frisky’s Church of Sham Marriages, a Silent Disco Tent, bumper cars, and of course, plenty of local NYC grub.
