Basilica

It’s only fitting that the Basilica Soundscape festival takes place as summer turns to fall, as this festival is much different than the large-scale festivals that take place across the country during the summer. Not only is it’s location in the industrial Basilica Hudson building in Hudson, New York a much more intimate affair in set up, but it’s lineup is as unique as you’ll find at any festival out there.

This year the festival sports a lineup as diverse and interesting as they come: The Haxan Cloak, HEALTH, Perfume Genius, Viet Cong, Jenny Hval, Lydia Ainsworth, Weyes Blood, Actress, Wolf Eyes, and many more. The festival, in it’s 4th year, features curation from Basilica Hudson’s founders, Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone, along with Pitchfork managing editor Brandon Stosuy and Brian DeRan of Leg Up Management.

Last year was my first time up to the festival (as well as Hudson, New York – a 2 hour train ride, or drive from the city), and I was impressed in every way imaginable. Not only does it features a wide range of artists, but there’s something cool about seeing bands in an industrial building. Everyone there is for the music, enjoying a bite to eat, a beer, or taking in some art. There are no flags, flower crowns, or go pros. It’s a festival without all the music festival headaches.

You can find photos and a recap of last year’s festival right here. Both two-day, and single day tckets for the festival are still currently available at this link. You can find more information about the festival at their website, facebook, instagram and twitter.
