The inaugural New York music festival initially dubbed Across the Pond has been rechristened Across the Narrows. Set for Oct. 1-2 at Brooklyn’s Keyspan Park and Staten Island’s Richmond County Bank Ballpark, the event will feature headlining sets from Oasis, the Killers, Beck and the Pixies.
The Pixies will anchor the Oct. 1 bill in Brooklyn, alongside Gang Of Four, Built To Spill, Rilo Kiley, Death From Above 1979, Mando Diao and Nine Black Alps. Simultaneously in Staten Island, the Killers will play with Interpol, the New York Dolls, British Sea Power, Lake Trout, Tegan & Sara and the Ordinary Boys.
The next day’s shows will feature Beck, Belle & Sebastian, the Polyphonic Spree, the Raveonettes, Gang Gang Dance, Whirlwind Heat and a band to be announced in Brooklyn, and Oasis, Jet, Doves, the reunited Lemonheads, Kasabian, Jesse Malin, the Redwalls and an undetermined act in Staten Island.
Tickets can be purchased separately for each of the four shows, and a discounted ticket will be available for any two concerts. VIP package details are still being finalized.
