Explosions in the Sky, Angel Olsen, and more to perform at Basilica SoundScape 2016

One of the most singular music and art festivals this side of Unsound Krakow is again coming to the Hudson Valley on the weekend of September 16-18. Its lineup includes Explosions in the Sky, Angel Olsen, Wolves in the Throne Room, Youth Code, and Cobalt, with more artists to be announced soon.

Basilica SoundScape takes place in Hudson, NY, about two and a half hours north of Manhattan, and has been lauded for its “anti-festival”-like atmosphere. The event’s organizers (Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone) and co-curators, including Kickstarter’s Brandon Stosuy and Leg Up! Management’s Brian DeRan, have made a point to showcase innovative, offbeat musical acts, as well as intersperse their offerings with “conceptual sound performances, author readings, installations, collaborations, curated local vendors and artisans, on-site activities and more” in a carefully-curated, unorthodox mix.

As the two-day festival’s main venue is a reclaimed 1880s factory with limited capacity, the organizers recommend reserving tickets sooner rather than later. You can order them here. Also, be sure to check out our coverage of last year’s edition of the event.
