Hot time, summer in the city, music on the island. Randall's Island that is. New York City is getting another large music festival, one that is slated to be larger than the annual Governor's Ball Music Festival which started last year.
The Catalpa Music Festival, set to take place July 28 and July 29 at Randall's Island, will feature more than 40 artists from a diverse array of musical genres.
Heading the bill are The Black Keys and Snoop Dogg, the latter of which will play his classic album "Doggystyle" in its entirety. Other acts on the bill for the two day fest include TV On The Radio, Girl Talk, A$AP Rocky, Umphrey's McGee and Matisyahu.
Tickets are on sale now and three day weekend passes start at $139.99 through June 12. And by the way, according to the festival website, their will be an inflatable church for those spontaneous folks who want to get married on the spot. A drunken mistake or not.
