The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) has announced plans for a new music festival, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, May 3 through 5. Curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner of Brooklyn band the National, headliners for the event include the Walkmen (May 3), St. Vincent (May 4) and Beirut (May 5). Crossing Brooklyn Ferry will take over the three venues in the Peter Jay Sharp Building at 30 Lafayette Avenue. There’s the grand Howard Gilman Opera House, a wide open party space in the BAM Café, and the BAM Rose Cinemas for commissioned short films and accompanying scores.


A three-day Fest Pass costs a very reasonable $110 and tickets will go on sale to the general public March 6. Single tickets are $45 each and will be available on March 12. Friends of BAM will be able to purchase either option a day prior to these dates. For more information visit CrossingBrooklynFerry.com.
