On October 12, CBGB Festival is taking over Times Square for its main event—a concert featuring 25 bands across two stages. Even better? The outdoor concert will be totally free and will see the buzzing midtown hub blocked off from traffic. That's quite a venue, isn't it?
The lineup will be announced over the next few weeks. CBGB Music and Film Festival will feature over 500 bands, 125 panel speakers and 100 movie screenings across 125 venues from October 9 through 13, so stay tuned to the fest's website for more info. See you there!
