Catalpa is the newest festival trying to make it in the NYC area. The inaugural two-day event will take place on Randall's Island July 28th-29th. The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg (performing Doggystyle), TV On The Radio, The Big Pink, AraabMuzik, Umphrey's McGee, City and Colour, Fort Atlantic and more (over 50 acts) will be appearing. According to the fest's official site:

"The team putting Catalpa together are from Dublin and are implementing many European concepts and elements into the festival. It’s going to be an amazing and unique event with some of the art and production actually being shipped from Europe!"

Early Bird tickets are on sale now for $99.99 here. More info to come soon. Until then, watch TOTR perform on a Heineken Light billboard in NYC. Let's hope this fairs better than MTK Music Festival and All Points West.
