The new festival Mondo.NYC just announced its final lineup for next week’s mass of shows. 156 artists hailing from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia and Israel will perform over a five-day period across Brooklyn and Manhattan. Notable performers include CymcoLé, Downtown Boys, Angel Olsen, Kathryn Gallagher and Opus Orange.
Mondo.NYC aims to bring together actors from myriad sectors of the music world—musicians, fans, technological innovators, and business people—to “bridge the gap” between them. The idea is to give emerging artists “a unique opportunity to showcase their talent to top industry executives and music fans,” according to a festival spokeswoman.
Performances will occur at night, with the daytime saved for panels featuring speakers from the music and entertainment industries taking place on the NYU campus. Bob Boilen, creator of NPR’s “All Songs Considered” and “Tiny Desk Concert Series,” will moderate the speaker events.
The festival will take place from Wednesday, Sept. 14 to Sunday, Sept. 18. Ticket prices range from $99 to $349, including student discounts.
