The “All Tomorrow’s Parties” music festival has announced new details for its September 21-23 extravaganza at Pier 36 on the Lower East Side. Rising R&B star Frank Ocean has been confirmed for Friday night (hopefully he won’t cancel at the last minute). Ocean was picked by festival curator Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs.
Other confirmed artists: Hannibal Buress (joining the Friday comedy lineup) and a second performance from ex-Sonic Youth member Lee Ranaldo. The Afghan Whigs headline on Saturday night. There will also be performances from The Roots, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, José González, The Antlers, DJ Questlove, Charles Bradley, The Make-Up, Dirty Three, Mark Lanegan Band, Hot Snakes, Thee Oh Sees (to name a few).
The American edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties is moving from Asbury Park to Pier 36, at the end of Montgomery Street (otherwise known as Basketball City). Passes for the weekend cost $199. Some single-day tickets are available. More info on ATP’s web site.
