NYC's New Colossus Festival Gears Up for 2020 Edition
The New Colossus Festival is getting ready to mark its second annual event in New York City's Lower East Side, with more than 100 artists performing on 10 stages next month.

The fest takes places from March 11 to 15 at various venues, and there will be multiple Canadian acts taking part.

Ice Cream, Kiwi. Jr., Hot Garbage, Bodywash, Caveboy, Praises, Sahara, Sportsfan, FRANKIIE, Tallies and many more Canadian acts will perform.

They will play alongside international acts such as A Place to Bury Strangers, Ackerman, Anthony Mills, Tim Burgess, King Nun, Vistas and more.

You can see the full lineup below, where you will also find a festival playlist.

There is also the "Colossal Conversations" series, which consists of panel discussions, as well as a conference with various guest speakers representing a wide cross-section of music industry professionals and artists.

"We set out to create a panel series that made sense for the artists who are performing at the festival and their representatives. We chose topics relevant to their current needs and the speakers who are relevant and can connect with them professionally," said New Colossus co-founder Mike Bell of the series.
