NYC’s New Colossus fest announces initial 2023 lineup

The 2023 edition of NYC's New Colossus Festival runs March 8-13 at venues all over the East Village and the Lower East Side, including Mercury Lounge, Berlin Under A, Arlene’s Grocery, Bowery Ballroom, Bowery Electric, Heaven Can Wait, Pianos, and more. Happening just before SXSW, the festival features many artists from all over the world on their way to Austin and was designed to have the same flavor that CMJ had, so you can hop from venue to venue each night.

They've just announced the initial lineup of over 100 artists which include Jeanines, Teenage Halloween, THUS LOVE, Jane Inc, Poster Paints (members of Frightened Rabbit), Blushing, Heaven for Real, Marci (members of TOPS), and many more. Check out the initial lineup, and the official New Colossus playlist, below.

Festival badges for New Colossus are on sale now.
