Very stoked for the bulk of performers announced so far. Been jamming Zola Jesus’ old album The Spoils a lot of late and serpentwithfeet is one of the most next level performers – with a scary potent voice – I have heard in years.

Darcie Wilder/ Eileen Myles / Patty Schemel

For the sixth straight year, Basilica Hudson’s Founders and Creative Directors Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone are working in collaboration with The Creative Independent Editor in Chief Brandon Stosuy to program Basilica SoundScape, a carefully curated weekend that’s been called “the antifestival” by various publications for offering of a thoughtful mix of music, visual art and literature. This year they welcome back previous BSS Creative Director Michael Renaud to handle all aspects of visual design for the event and have added the talents of a special guest curator, Jenn Pelly, editor at Pitchfork, and author of a forthcoming book on the Raincoats.
Early bird tickets for the festival are available now, and can be purchased HERE. Because of the event’s limited capacity, attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets early. The festival will take place in Basilica Hudson’s industrial factory in Hudson, NY September 15 – 17.
