Ten young bands take the Bryant Park Stage for a two-day festival on Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19.
Bryant Park Presents Emerging Music Festival returns for the third year in a row next week with a new two-day format featuring ten on-the-rise NYC bands. Music-lovers are invited to come to Bryant Park Lawn for a thorough sampling of the city’s best new music, including indie rock, soul, R&B, singer-songwriter, and more.
Between sets, attendees can play giant lawn games, learn to juggle, and purchase food and drink from local vendors curated by Hester Street Fair. Beer and wine will also be available for purchase, and you can borrow a blanket from the Park Shop & Info tent to enjoy it all on, while supplies last.
The Festival kicks off on Friday, August 18 with a four-hour session and continues with six full hours of music the following day:
