Tickets for Dessner-curated Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival on sale!

That's right, we have more music festival news! Tickets are now on sale for the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry music festival, which will take place in just two months. The festival is being curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner (not "The National," though yes, they do also happen to be in the band. Hey, they're people too!). It will be held from May 3 to 5 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

We also now have the full lineup now which sadly does not include To Be Confirmed. (We are still hoping to sign those guys.) It does, however, feature St. Vincent, Beirut, and The Walkmen. There will also be performances by The Antlers, Sharon Van Etten, Atlas Sound, My Brightest Diamond, yMusic and (Brassland alert!) Jherek Bischoff, Buke and Gase, and People Get Ready.

In addition to all this great music, there will be a late-night dance party and screenings of short films commissioned for the festival. You can check out the full lineup on the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry website, and you can also click those little "Buy Tickets" buttons to get in on the action. I mean you don't have to or anything but, note, we expect this one will sell out.
