‘Indieplaza’ music festival takes over New York’s Rockefeller Plaza this weekend

0

It’s pretty surreal that legendary record store Rough Trade – an indie rock mecca that was born in London during the punk era and opened a sprawling location in the hipster haven of Brooklyn Williamsburg in 2013 that sadly hasn’t survived the pandemic – is now located at Rockefeller Plaza in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, literally in the same building as NBC.

Things will get even more surreal this weekend, when “Indieplaza 2022” — a free music festival co-presented by Rockefeller Center and Rough Trade featuring a slew of up-and-coming artists — takes over Rockefeller Plaza on Saturday and Sunday. Highlights include an hour-long DJ set from A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad, singer-songwriter Claud, rapper-singer Yaya Bey, rockers Horsegirl and Steve Gunn, and more (full lineup and game times appear below).

A live broadcast of the festival will be available on sohoradionyc.com on the NYC + Culture channel.

There will also be an “Artist Market” which will feature live art demos from Steve Keene, Jose Berrio, Daniel Shepard and Madalyn Stefanak, artist signings with Automatic, Horsegirl and Sessa, and all family activities weekend crafts like button making. , bracelet making, design your own 7 inch record cover, and more.
