The third installment of the BasilicaSoundScape festival takes place September 12-13 at Basilica Hudson, an arts and performance space inside a reclaimed 19th-century factory located on the waterfront in Hudson, New York. Tickets are on sale now for $60. Single-day passes cost $35.
Today we're excited to announce several additions to the BasilicaSoundScape program. On Friday night, September 12, Leg UP! will present a showcase featuring a set from Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry, who will perform material from his upcoming solo album Music for Heart and Breath (Deutsche Grammophon). There will also be a performances from legendary New York psych band Endless Boogie and Gamelan Dharma Swara orchestra. They join previously announced sets from Tim Hecker and Julia Holter.
The next night, Pitchfork's Show No Mercy will present its showcase. In addition to the Swans and Deafheaven sets announced earlier (it's Swans' only area appearance), that show will also include performances by White Lung, Emily Reo, and Guardian Alien (whose drummer, Liturgy alum Greg Fox, will also play additional solo sets). It will also feature readings from White Lung’s Mish Way and Perfect Pussy frontwoman Meredith Graves.
Additionally, acclaimed visual artist Sterling Ruby will create large-scale quilt-like flags as backdrops for the main stage. Ruby’s flags are sewn together from black and blue bleached denim and dyed canvas in shades of acid orange, yellows, purples and reds.
The weekend will also include visual arts, performance art, readings, farm to table food and more.
Basilica Hudson is an artist-owned venue run by Creative Directors Melissa Auf der Maur (formerly of Hole and Smashing Pumpkins) and filmmaker Tony Stone.
The festival is organized by Auf der Maur, Stone, Pitchfork Senior Editor/Director of Events Brandon Stosuy, and Brian DeRan of Gleam House and Leg UP! A carefully curated weekend program that seeks to build specific connections and overlaps (as opposed to traditional "festival"-style overload), the Basilica experience includes a wide range of music, literature, visual art, and farm-to-table food. Closer to the event, BasilicaSoundScape will provide information about camping, hotel, and bed and breakfast housing.
