Downtown Events is excited to announce the launch of the first date of the 2013 Downtown Music Festival, headlined by Black Hippy and featuring Purity Ring, Earl Sweatshirt, DIIV and more. Taking place over May 10th and 11th, Downtown will take over the New York’s Lower East Side with new, influential artists playing shows at intimate venues like Element, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, Pianos, Cake Shop, Tammany Hall, Rockwood Music Hall, and more.
A limited number of SUPER FAN venue tickets will be available Friday for each venue. These tickets guarantee access to one venue and are not viable for any of the other festival locations. There are a very limited number of these SUPER FAN tickets available, so get them while they’re hot!
This year’s Downtown Music Festival is headlined by Black Hippy, the revered California rap crew of Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock, that’s in the midst of what some might call a well-deserved hip-hop takeover. These cats are definitely carrying the torch, and to that end, click the image to check out their cover of A Tribe Called Quest, and Leaders of the New School’s classic posse cut, “Scenario“.
