Since 1955, The Village Voice has been New York City’s go-to alternative weekly newspaper, providing those in the know with refreshing takes on politics, current events, arts, culture, and events. For the past 15 years, they’ve also been holding live music festivals, most recently 4Knots Music Festival, begun in 2011.
4Knots is back this year for its sixth consecutive year. In conjunction with Goose Island Beer Co., Whole Foods, and more, The Village Voice and South Street Seaport are hosting the completely FREE festival tomorrow, July 9, at the Seaport, one of Manhattan’s most historic areas.
