About this project
Planning is in motion to launch the NEW YORK DOWNTOWN JAZZ FESTIVAL in September 2013. The event is being envisioned as a 4-day, multiple-stage, free music festival featuring over 20 bands, curated to entertain, educate and unite the masses through the power of sonic harmony. The NYDJF will take place at lower Manhattan's North Cove, behind the World Financial Center, overlooking the Hudson River.
On April 19-21, the New York Downtown Jazz Festival will curate the live music pre-show for the Tribeca Drive-In, the Tribeca Film Festival's signature outdoor screening series. Organizers hope to provide music lovers with a sneak peek of the diverse musical programming, while introducing the future event to potential sponsors.
FREE JAZZ + FREE MOVIES. April 19: check out the amazing afrobeat-jazz rockers NOMO, followed by classic thriller JAWS. April 20: see jazz legend and innovator RAVI COLTRANE, followed by 80s classic, THE GOONIES. April 21: TBD. Music begins at 7pm, movies begin at approx 8:15pm. ALL FREE.
Organizers are looking to KICKSTARTER to help finance the preview event. Expenses include talent fees, band gear, transportation, onsite branding and promotional items. The Tribeca preview event is a first step towards establishing the New York Downtown Jazz Festival as new cultural landmark in lower Manhattan. Show your support by pledging online. LIVE MUSIC = LOVE
