Across The Narrows

The inaugural two-day, two-venue Across the Narrows festival will be held in New York October 1-2 at Brooklyn’s KeySpan Park and Staten Island’s Richmond County Bank Ballpark. Confirmed headliners include Oasis, Pixies, Beck, and The Killers.

The fest will take place at both venues simultaneously with a total of four shows, Jim Steen of Ron Delsener Presents told Pollstar. Other artist confirmations include Jet, Gang Of Four, Belle & Sebastian, and the New York Dolls.

“The complete lineup will be staggering,” Ron Delsener Presents President Jim Glancy said.

Steen added that a complete lineup and ticketing information would be announced August 8th, but he could confirm that The Killers will headline in Staten Island October 1st, and Oasis will headline October 2nd. In Brooklyn, the Pixies will headline October 1st with Beck closing the second night.

Gates will open at noon and music will start at 2 p.m. each day.

Reports have suggested that a discount will be available to fans purchasing tickets to more than one show. Fans who wish to attend a single show will reportedly be able to do so.

The festival was briefly called Across the Pond; legal issues prompted the name change, Steen said.
