The National have announced a flurry of acts for the Bryce and Aaron Dessner-curated Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival next month.
The film and music festival, which is in conjunction with the Brooklyn Academy of Music, takes place in New York between 25-27 April.
Music-wise, TV on the Radio, Solange, the Roots, Eleanor Freidberger, Here We Go Magic, Julia Holter, Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, and Eddi Front have all been announced.
Named after a Walt Whitman poem, the three-day music and film festival launched last year and featured bands, improvisers, composers, singer-songwriters and filmmakers from all corners of the New York music scene.
