Free Concert Frenzy! Siren Festival & Summerstage 7/18

Coney Island
VS Central Park

Spank Rock VS QTip
Siren Festival VS SummerStage

Decisions, Decisions....I don't know which one I'll pick but both are gonna rock your world.

9th Annual Siren Festival
Saturday, July 18th
Coney Island, NYC

Set against the backdrop of Coney Island, this free, all ages, all day music festival showcases renowned and emerging artists on two outdoor stages. Featuring a killer lineup this show will not dissapoint: BUILT TO SPILL, SPANK ROCK, THE RAVEONETTES, FRIGHTENED RABBIT, A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS, GRAND DUCHY, MONOTONIX, THEE OH SEES, FUTURE OF THE LEFT, JAPANDROIDS, MICACHU & THE SHAPES, TINY MASTERS OF TODAY, BEAR HANDS, THE BLUE VAN, JUSTINE D, DEADHEAT DJS

But on the other hand spending a Saturday in Sheeps Meadow with some tunes and a nice breeze sounds pretty amazing.

Central Park SummerStage
Saturday, July 18th
Central Park SummerStage
69th St @ 5th Ave

SummerStage's lineup tomorrow includes the legendary QTip, Chester French, Little Dragon & Benji B.

Either way you go, there's a few things to keep in mind........

-Both shows will be crazy busy. SummerStage, doors open at 2pm but I'd get there earlier and get in line, because once the stage area is at capacity they stop letting people in and you're relegated to stand on some rocks outside the fence.

- Coney Island is far away!! About 45min-1hr, but on the day of the festival trains will be busy and slow. Don't forget to plan for this and bring cash for Coney, all the palm readers, hot dog stands and rollercoasters take strictly cash and the ATM fees there are pretty astronomical.

- And finally wear Sunscreen so you don't end up leaving the par
k or the island looking like a lobster!

Here's some directions & FAQs for SummerStage & Siren Festival.

Have fun! xoxo

of course, you can ride a bike on the path down Ocean Parkway to Coney Island. about 30 minutes from the top of the park.
