A Free 3-Night Festival with 3-D Projections Coming to Times Square

Few things will drag a real New Yorker to Times Square, but a three-night free Music and Video Art festival might be one of them. This visual and audio extravaganza hits  AMC Empire 25 movie theater in February. Here are all the details.

There are a few places New Yorkers will avoid like the plague, Times Square is probably at the top of the list. An event landing in February is sure to make many of us rethink our aversion to the crossroads of the world.

“Interference AV” is a free, three-night festival of experimental video art and live music at the AMC Empire 25 movie theater in Times Square. The experimental video collective UNDERVOLT & CO have teamed up with Clocktower Productions to produce live projections on an epic scale for this three-night takeover of America’s top-grossing multiplex.

The festival begins on February 19 to the 21, at 8 pm. Headlining the nights are Jlin (Feb 19), Lightning Bolt (Feb 20) and The Sun Ra Arkestra (Feb 21), with opening acts still to be announced.

Artists Peter Burr and Sabrina Ratté will VJ live projections each night, and in the lobby will be a zine fair and DJs curated by Clocktower Productions.
