On July 28 and 29 the first Catalpa Festival is set to take place on Randall Island in New York City. The event is set to feature The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, TV on the Radio and The Big Pink.
Catalpa has included some unique features to its weekend. With an Arcadia sculpture (a spire that shoots flame balls from its peak while DJs spin inside), a 60-foot inflatable Church of Sham where you can turn marriage proposals into a sham or legitimate (your choice, no judgment), a silent disco tent, reggae stage, art installations that include work from Yoko Ono and Burning Man, as well as bumper cars.
Early bird weekend passes are still on sale for $99. You can purchase then at Catapla NYC. VIP passes, travel packages and “ultimate VIP cabana and hot-tub packages” are all offered as well.
