With summer about six weeks before wrapping up, there is still time to head outside and enjoy some music at a festival. If you’ve paid attention to the artists I’ve posted here, many of them are not only on tour but are using festivals as a means to get their music across, as is the custom. Those in or within/around New York City will be able to enjoy the Spy Music Festival happening in early September, created by Northern Spy Records.

It’s the 3rd time the festival has been put together, and it will be held on two different days at two different venues: you can head to the Spectrum in Manhattan on September 7th, while September 8th will be in Brooklyn at 285 Kent. Along with bands, there will be sets from some of the top and upcoming DJ’s, along with giveaways throughout the two-day fest. This is the current lineup:
