Get ready to groove–the second annual indieplazaoutdoor music festival is coming to Rockefeller Plaza this September!
In partnership with Rough Trade, the festival is part of a larger four-part concert series that includes quarterly indieballroom shows at the Rainbow Room, featuring three artists, two stages, one ballroom, and a full bar, all tied together with jaw-dropping views of NYC.
The first indieballroom show will kick of the music series on Sunday, May 7 at 7p.m., featuring SQÜRL, Bria, and a special guest (you can learn more about this show and snag tickets here).
Rough Trade first partnered with Rockefeller Center back in the summer of 2021, and was arguably one of NYC’s most exciting partnerships. They’re responsible for many record vinyl sales for the retailer along with hundreds of store events featuring artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, Mary J Blige, Father John Misty, and Japanese Breakfast.
“Experiencing three, blisteringly hot indie bands perform across two stages in an art deco ballroom, hundreds of feet up in the Manhattan skyline, with a drink in hand, surrounded by the communal joy of likeminded music lovers, that’s the kind of life-affirming cocktail that only New York can serve up, the kind of worthwhile experience that helps merit what it takes to afford to live in this city,” said Rough Trade’s co-owner, Stephen Godfroy.
The indieplazaoutdoor music festival will be held at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in September, though no further details have been released yet.
Last year’s show featured 20+ musical guests including Claud, Yaya Bey, The Muckers, Say She She, Cola, and more.
And that’s not the only exciting event happening at Rockefeller Center this season–Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace is also making its return this April, so be sure to grab your kneepads and put your best skate forward!
