New York City celebrates music on Randall’s Island for the first time under the auspice of Catalpa. The Catalpa Music Festival takes place on the 28th and 29th of July featuring an iridescent collection of artists ranging from headliners The Black Keys and Snoop Dogg to the Harlem ‘goldie’ A$AP Rocky, from Matisyahu to Girl Talk and AraabMUZIK. High Times Magazine will even organize a Reggae Stage where musicians and selectors will mete out irie rhythms under the sun. The sheer variety to be showcased on this summer weekend puts to the forefront MUSIC and not necessarily any specific genre. This event will not only exhibit musical variety but will render the distinctions between the various styles of sound less significant to note. This artistic amoeba molded by the voices, the guitar licks, the breakdowns, and the lyrics of so many will pulse at a single meter dope enough to turn the East River ebb into the East River flow. Get Ready. For more information, please visit:
